FBI warns about fraud risk on LinkedIn

It’s officially summer, and the criminals hope to enjoy it with your money!

The scams that the FBI has investigated recently involve a person that may contact you via LinkedIn offering some sort of cryptocurrency investment advice. They want you to invest in a platform or market that they recommend, when in fact they are simply taking your money. Please be highly suspicious of individuals that contact you proactively on any social media offering free advice, especially financial advice.


Of course, the criminals will likely change tactics soon, so please be aware of unsolicited communications and invitations to add folks to your networks that you don’t know.


Remember, if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
