Scammers take their cues from headlines, adapting old scams and inventing new ways to steal money or sensitive personal information. On top of that, the coronavirus and the social unrest we're seeing also heighten levels of fear and anxiety, putting us all in a state of mind called "under the ether" that makes us more susceptible targets. And with the hard part of their work done for them, scammers are busier than ever.

You can protect yourself and your loved ones if you know what scams you should be aware of. Our free webinar will provide you with important information to help you confidently spot and identify coronavirus scams. We'll explore:
