Criminals use every bit of technology to their advantage. You can no longer trust who is calling, sending a text, or an email. You just never know who is at the other end. And you can wind up losing everything.

Welcome to today's episode of The Protectors Podcast. In this episode, we're joined by a special guest, Christian, a brave college student who has experienced firsthand the devastating impact of a banking scam. Christian courageously shares his personal story, taking us through the harrowing journey of being targeted by a cunning phone call scam that appeared to be from his banking institution. The fraud left him bewildered, vulnerable, and potentially penniless. His story is a call to our younger Americans, as to others, that getting educated about fraud is critical in the world we live in. Fortunately, Christian reacted quickly, and with some help from the Protectors Podcast, IAFCI, law enforcement, and bank investigators, this story has a rare happy ending. Christian wanted to "pay it forward," so others know what to do when they are targeted by imposters.
