The word “scam” relates to fraud, a dishonest scheme with the intention to deceive and take money or other goods from an innocent victim. The individual who commits the scam is known as a “swindler“, “scammer”, or “crook”. They tend to rely on the most common types of scams in their business – which you’ll be learning all about today. Public transportation was a common platform for “estafadores” or scammers in my home country, Venezuela. One day, I decided to observe and notice how they operated, and more importantly – why they succeeded in their scams. They had different scripts. Some days, they pretended they lost a family member, so they were collecting money to go to the funeral. On other days they shared […]Read More

In general terms, an attack is defined as an act of violence. Attacks can happen in many ways and could be physical and/or emotional in nature. I was kidnapped when I was in my early 20’s. After that experience, I wanted to regain my confidence and feel strong, so I decided to take martial arts lessons. I was so nervous the first day! I was not coordinated at all. The movements were very challenging, the workout was so intense that I barely made it through, and I had to empty my stomach at the end of the class. Yikes! Yet, with persistence and practice I became stronger and more centered. Although I didn’t master this discipline and I was only able […]Read More
Identity theft can happen to anyone, regardless of who you are, where you are from, or what you do for a living. It can happen to you just as it happened to me. When a Cybermonster stole my identity to smuggle women into the US, I felt like my life was managed by someone else. When I googled my name, I saw that everything was in Chinese characters. My heart just stopped. I wanted to cry, scream and hide, all at the same time. All I wanted was to feel safe again, for things to go back to normal, and to wake up from this nightmare. I spent all my time hoping this wasn’t happening. The reality is it did happen […]Read More
Are you ready for another Happily Ever Cyber fairytale? Let’s learn about a little girl named Goldilocks, and her encounter with the three bears. Once upon a time, there lived 3 bears.

They loved listening to music together and going for long walks in the morning while their porridge cooled down. One such morning, Mama Bear had just finished making a big pot of porridge. She served the porridge in their bowls and opened the window […]Read More
Recently a tech savvy friend of mine posted her vaccine card on social media showing her name and date of birth. Immediately, I was concerned. She wanted to celebrate a proud moment, share her beliefs with the world, and demonstrate how important this action was to her, and that’s why that moment of excitement overrode the knowledge of the threats she knows exist in the cyber world. A side effect is an adverse, harmful or unwanted effect that happens as a result of getting a desired or needed. When we share vaccination cards (or any other medical records), we are increasing our risks of being victims of a cyber attack. Social media platforms (such as Facebook and LinkedIn) are vulnerable when […]Read More
