In this Podcast, Buhari Dauda, The Team Lead Eight Steps Resources talked about how people run away from things that are real and go for something that is too promising such as a very high return on investment which makes quite a lot of people fall for fraudulent online investment. However, our financial literacy don dey increase. People are looking forward to having multiple streams of income. He also let us know that communication is more of text nowadays. Friend's social media accounts are hacked and used to trick in other friends to invest or subscribe to a fake service which makes their money vanish. He advised us we should also try and call to confirm any form of monetary actions that will be carried out on social media platform just to confirm if it's actually who they claim to be.   Other things that were discussed are: How do people believe in the genuine StartUp investment system coming up in Nigeria? How has EightSteps been able to maintain integrity with its users and future users? Base on the rate of cybercrime, we rounded up the Podcast with advice for internet users who are looking for trustworthy investment platforms. It is really an eye-opening talk which we believe we should all listen to.
