TikTok’s Fraud Awareness Week Kick Off Today

Today, TikTok is kicking off Fraud Awareness Week as a continuation of their #BeCyberSmart campaign with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).

TikTok is joining with industry experts including The Knoble’s Ian Mitchell, Frank McKenna (AKA, Frank on Fraud), Identity Theft Resource Center’s Eva Velasquez, Fraudology podcast host Karisse Hendrick, and the “Original Internet Godfather” Brett Johnson. Their goal is to spotlight ways to identify scams, verify suspicious activity, and report potential bad actors to the appropriate authorities.

Did you know that “smishing” is a form of phishing? Don’t take the bait! TikTok will never contact you asking for your personal info. #BeCyberSmart
