In addition to this scam feed, we have created our own YouTube channel. On this channel we will be outlining some of the most prominent on-going scams. These scams will be outlined in both animation and real-world visuals. For example, in our first YouTube video we summarize the Zelle scam. This scam is an extremely prominent scam and has bilked innocent Zelle users out lots of hard-earned money. We believe that scam prevention is achieved by using this format. This format keeps viewers interested and presents the scam in a more understandable fashion. All this goes a long way towards achieving our scam prevention goals.
