Hey Steemians, 👋

You may recall from my previous few newsletters that I was targeted in a SIM swap attack last month. SIM swapping is a vicious form of identity theft that took more away from me than just my identity--I lost thousands of dollars in crypto and A LOT of time. 😔

Over the past few weeks, I've been making a number of improvements to my operational security and I wanted to share them with you so that you don't have to experience what I just went through.

Check out my new video: What is SIM Swap Fraud? — 5 Important Crypto Security Tips. It's a 10 minute time investment that could literally save you thousands of dollars:

Sharing is caring! If you find this video helpful, please remember to share it with your friends and family members so that they can benefit as well! 🙏 👍
