Scott Jones
MARS Suite, Inc.
Vice President of Business Development
Over the years I have watched loved ones who have worked their tails off lose much of their earnings due to fraud and scams. My parents have both had to deal with ransomware on their personal computers and, as seniors, have not known what to do but call me and ask for help. I was purchasing a home and received a letter claiming to be from my title company and requesting the change of the deposit to something other than what I had. I was smart enough not to change the deposit and called the title company, who informed me that they were being spoofed and thanked me for contacting them. These situations must stop! This is what drives me to help everyone understand their cybersecurity hygiene and, more importantly, protect themselves from fraud.
