SCARS™ Special Report: Talking with Kids About Being Online

From: First Lady Melania Trump, White House, and the Federal Trade Commission, Washington D.C.

This guide from the Federal Trade Commission covers issues to raise with kids about living their lives online.


Introduction By First Lady Melania Trump

As First Lady, I want to nurture the most valuable part of our society and our future: children.

As adults, we take responsibility for helping children manage the many issues they face. So what is the best way to protect our kids online?

Talk with them. Communicate your values clearly so your kids can make thoughtful decisions when they face tricky situations. If you have a young person in your life — whether you are a parent or
guardian, teacher, police officer, coach, religious or scout leader, relative or friend — I ask you to join me and commit to promoting values such as encouragement, compassion, and respect, both online and offline.

The lessons in this booklet can help kids act thoughtfully and kindly. I hope you will use it to have conversations with children about appropriate conduct online and about using social media responsibly.

The internet — and technology in general — are powerful forces for good. I believe that, together, we can make a real difference in encouraging positive behavior online.

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:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI ( »)
  3. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network HERE » or on »

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
