Your grandson is in trouble
Crooks are using AI to impersonate people’s voices, then call their family members to ask for money to get them out of a jam. A standard scheme is to say they need bail money to get out of jail.

Here’s how to avoid falling for this one:

When you get a panicked call from a loved one, end the call as soon as you can.
Call them directly and ask if they’re really in danger. They’re likely fine and there’s nothing to worry about.
If you can’t get a hold of them, reach out to a mutual family member or friend to make sure they’re OK.
Tip: Talk to your elderly loved ones about this all-too-common scam.

Pyramid schemes
Free beauty seminars or weight loss solutions are almost always multi-level marketing (MLM) schemes. The only way to make money is to recruit others to sell the same stuff they’re trying to offload on friends and family, including press-on nails, supplements, candles and even Bitcoin.
