Internet criminals never shy away from an opportunity to exploit the death of celebrities or well-known individuals. They use the “shock factor” to create fake controversy and trick people into falling for their dangerous click bait. You’ve likely heard about the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, who was recently found dead in his jail cell. Be on high alert for any communications related to Epstein’s death: emails and attachments, social media platforms (messages, posts, etc.), texts on your phone, or anything else. There will be a number of scams related to this.
Stay safe out there!
Stop, Look, and Think. Don’t be fooled.
