How To Handle Scammers | Be A Jerk

Scammers are everywhere these days, and it seems like there is only ONE way to deal with them: be a total JERK!

During this weeks video blogpost, I briefly talk about WHY you should develop a no-tolerance policy when it comes to these people, and tell an outrageous true story of one man who had over $9,000 stolen from his bank account through perhaps the most clever phone scam you've ever heard.

What makes it amazing is that the victim was someone who worked in the cybersecurity industry!

The story of this clever phone scam account can be found in greater detail on Brian Krebs' excellent blog in an article titled "When In Doubt: Hang Up, Look Up, & Call Back" by clicking here.

Let me know what you think!  Leave  a comment below!

Curtis Waltermire is an American professional comedy magician, mentalist, entertainer and tech nerd who combines over 30 years of experience in business, teaching, speaking, music, humor, magic and mind-reading to create dynamic and highly entertaining performances and presentations. His one-man, comedy mind-reading show has been performed for hundreds of corporate and private audiences throughout the United States since the late 1980s. He also makes part of his living as a professional actor, frequently landing bit roles and extra roles in TV commercials, feature, independent and industrial films, and commercial printwork advertisements. He is an 8-year, Persian-Gulf Era U.S. Army Veteran (whose oldest daughter is also a former U.S. Marine) and an overall shameless supporter of American military troops. His most amazing feat is being married 29 years to the same woman, raising two fantastic daughters, and playing with his grandson. When not performing he enjoys stand-up comedy, playing guitar and piano, spending time with his grandson Lane, rigorous swim workouts, fine wine, whiskey, dark-roasted coffee and premium cigars. He also speaks fluent French and Spanish. He wears many hats and often refers to himself as a "Mentalist/Magician/Actor/Grandpa/Cool Dad & Above-Average Husband."
