In just a few days the U.S. is celebrating one of it’s little known but most important special days — National Slam the Scam Day on May 7th which is designed to give people the tools to recognize a Social-Security related scam and educate people about government scams to stop scammers from stealing your money and personal information. National “Slam the Scam” Day was created by Social Security’s Office of the Inspector General to raise awareness of government imposter scams, which continue to spread across the United States

The government has created a social media kit you can that includes images you can post like this one. Go to their site for more details.

Plus in honor of this special day, you can get two films on Apple-TV on scams and how to avoid them during a two week sale — “Conned: A True Story” Conned: A True Story — Apple TV and “Con Artists Unveiled,” Con Artists Unveiled — Apple TV at superlow prices from March 4th through March 18 — at an EST price of $6.99 and a VOD price of $1.99.

The books on which the films are based will be available on a Kindle ebook sale during this time too featuring the lowest possible price available on Amazon. One book is “The Big Con,” (which inspired “Conned: a True Story,” https://tinyurl.com/mr29zfjz. It’s about a ghostwriter’s discovery of a book-to-film scam where a company created phony company CEOs from Newline Cinema and other film companies to get clients to pay for writing materials and conducting a media campaign that went nowhere. The other book is “I Was Scammed,” (the inspiration for “Con Artists Unveiled”) https://tinyurl.com/3fwru5k9, which features over two dozen scams and how to avoid them. Both books were published by American Leadership Books. You can also put the titles and author’s name (Gini Graham Scott) in Amazon to find the books in paperback and hardcover.

Also, if you experience a scam or know someone who was affected, here’s the form for reporting Social Security-related scams: https://secure.ssa.gov/ipff/home. And to spread the word about the Slam the Scam Day, here’s the hashtag to post: #SlamtheScam.
