Fraud is nothing to ignore, and we cannot assume it won’t happen to us.
According to an article by CNBC, COVID-19 fraud has cost Americans $77 million dollars. Of course you and I don’t know when this pandemic of COVID-19 will be over, nor do we know when things will get back to “normal.”
The reality is that fraud can happen to any of us at any time, and sadly, it seems that the predators are even more active during challenging times like this when people have big needs, and emotions are running high. In this episode of the Her Dinero Matters Podcast, I share the painful truth about the high cost of fraud during this time, who is at risk of becoming a victim of fraud, and common fraud schemes during the pandemic.
Knowledge is power, and so you’ll also learn how you can protect yourself from becoming a victim of fraud. Awareness is the first step, and my hope is that this episode empowers you so that you feel safe and confident as the Reina of your money at a time when so many unscrupulous people are looking for targets.
What you’ll learn about in today’s episode:
The cost of fraud up to now during COVID-19
