SCARS™ SCAM NEWS: 3 Ways Companies Can Keep Us Safe Online
Communication Pros And Marketers Can Support Brands In Creating Safe Digital Environments For Their Organizations, Employees, And Families
Every day, billions of pieces of content are produced, posted, and shared online. From articles about the latest presidential tweetstorm to emails about the upcoming sale at Macy’s, some of this content is helpful and, at the very worst, innocuously annoying. But with so much material circulating, it’s no surprise that an abundance of misinformation, scams, and far more sinister schemes are whirling around right along with it. From phishing to sextortion to fraud, there have never been more online threats to learn about and guard against.
As marketers and communications professionals, we have to be keenly aware of the ways criminals, trolls, and peddlers of bad information can take advantage of the platforms and tools we use. The brands we work with have the same responsibility, which is why more and more strategies for combating online scams and other nefarious activity are being developed and implemented across industries.
Here are three of the most effective ways companies can keep themselves and their customers safe as they navigate an increasingly complex digital environment.
Make security training accessible and painless
Spread the word about safety and security

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
