Fraud Fighters teamed up with Tik Tok this week to raise awareness of scams and help curb the growing problem of fraud.
In an article posted this week, Fraud Awareness Week and Combatting CyberCrime, Andy Yu and Jeff Dant of Tik Tok kicked off an initiative to educate users on how to identify scams and avoid being victims.
To that end, they reached out to fraud experts and influencers to get the word out. And they called me too, so I am doing my part in the campaign to spread the message!
Joining Forces To Collaborate With Social Media Platforms
I have always said the new fight against fraud needs to be taken directly to where consumers are likely to be scammed – and that’s online.
I applaud Tik Tok for taking the initiative to collaborate with fraud fighters to join their fight this week. Here are some of the experts and their perspectives.
