⚠️🎙 AI Voice Cloning Scam Is On the Rise

You risk receiving a fictitious scam call that could break your bank account.

Let me explain further.

What would you do if you received a phone call with news that your family member or friend is in danger or needs money NOW?

Let me explain.

With the rise of AI and unscrupulous bad actors, a new scam has reared its ugly head. It's called the AI voice-cloning scam.

Fraudulent AI voice cloning scams are enabled when criminals create synthetic audio clips. These clips deceive victims into believing a family member or friend needs help immediately or is in imminent danger.

Through AI voice cloning technology, which is achieved by extracting audio snippets from various digital outlets, scammers create audio replicas of voices. It might be your daughter, son, or wife…you get the picture.

What is the goal of these scams? You are put into a position that will influence you to make a swift decision without thinking about it or reacting irrationally.

The result of these quick actions is severe financial loss, mainly in the United States. To protect oneself, it is imperative to be aware of unsolicited messages, verify the person's identity, and not wire money on the spot.

How does AI get your voice? Watch this video from Good Morning America.

Key Message: Protect yourself, your family, and your friends. Be aware. Don’t jump, and most of all, DON’T PANIC!
