Bitcoin Scams to Beware of

We seem to live in the world of scams now a days. There was probably many scams back when I was a kid but now that I have kids they seem to be coming out of the woodwork. We just try to prepare our kids of possible scams so they may not lose money in the future due to a scam. Scammers if they would use their skills for good they could probably make a good living.

I have friends that have been scammed by repairman scam, e-mail scams to fake girlfriend from Russia. Some scammers make it look so real so they are hard to tell at times that they are really a scam.

Now we are at a time of Bitcoins and other Digital Currencies I bet we will see more scams in the future. Today let me give you a few things to think about when dealing with Bitcoins or Digital Currency so you may have a better chance of not being scammed. I bet there are a ton of scams out there and that is why we teach our boys to research into things before they invest in them. I also included a link in the show notes of the info from the Federal Trade Commision where I got some information on Bitcoin scams.

Bottom Line is to Beware of Bitcoin Scams

Since it was introduced, Bitcoin has continued to rise exponentially

beyond what enthusiasts predicted at that time. As much as it is highly volatile and unpredictable, it is fast becoming a globally-adopted digital currency, and unlike normal currencies, there are no central authorities overseeing Bitcoin transactions. Once a Bitcoin transaction has been carried out, it cannot be reversed or recovered which makes it a huge focus for fraudsters.

There are still so many unknowns for us about Digital Currency. I know that Darlene isn’t excited about them but our boys see it as the future. I feel it could be mainstream someday but maybe not in my lifetime. We are an Angel Investor in a Credit Card company that used Bitcoins to convert to Money so you can buy purchases with it. Time will tell if our Investment was a good on or a wasted one.

We want to give our boys the best chance to have their money last them thru their retirement years and have them reach their Financial Freedom goals. They need to live somewhat with a frugal mindset and spend less than they make so they can Invest towards their Financial Freedom goals.
