Weight Loss Scams [Video]

Weight Loss Scams byline AARP Nearly half of American adults and well over half of American women are trying to lose weight, according to a 2018 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those figures fuel a $70 billion weight-loss industry — and a widespread trade in dubious products that will reduce only your bank account. Diet scams rank No. 1 among health care frauds reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with on-the-make marketers deploying a variety of tricks to get people to purchase their wares.

Phishing Attacks [Video]

Hackers impersonate Microsoft more than any other brand in phishing attacks By James Sanders Phishers tend to focus on business during the week, social media and finance on the weekend, according to a Vade Secure report. Cybercriminals change tactics throughout the week when waging phishing attacks, as social media services like Facebook are targeted more during the weekend, according to the Q1 2019 Phishers' Favorites report published Thursday by Vade Secure. Social engineering attacks—typically in the form of phishing—continue to be a popular mode of attack for cybercriminals, while an increase in social media for personal brand building, including the rise of Instagram "influencers," resulted in an increased targeting of social media services. After three-quarters of the decline, ...

Libra May Never Launch [Video]

Facebook's Libra Lack of Prior Crypto Experience The said launch of Libra, Facebook’s digital currency, has created a wide schism in the world of cryptocurrencies. Some believe that Libra is too centralized for the world’s good. Some back it as a ramp for crypto mass adoption. In the past weeks, Facebook has however faced more significant opposition from without, with US politicians relentless in their criticism. Now, in Facebook’s latest Q2 report, the social media giant has warned that it could back down on the Libra project, as a result of the backlash. In the report sent to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Facebook says:  “There can be no assurance that Libra or our associated products and services will be made available in a timely manner, or at all.” Facebook f...

News – Following the OneCoin Crypto Fraud 2019 [Video]

OneCoin lawyer found guilty in 'crypto-scam' A US lawyer has been found guilty for his role in the OneCoin cryptocurrency scam, which raised billions of pounds from investors convinced they were buying into a new digital currency. A New York jury found that Mark Scott helped to perpetuate the scheme, routing approximately $400m (£310m) out of the US while working to conceal the true ownership and source of the funds. Prosecutors said he made about $50m. Mr. Scott's lawyers had said he did not know that OneCoin was worthless. They said he was simply doing the job asked by Dr. Ruja Ignatova, a co-founder of the Bulgaria-based OneCoin. The federal jury in Manhattan rejected those arguments, finding Mr. Scott guilty of conspiracy to commit money laundering...
