Session 2:

  • Safety Discussion

  • Class Activity: Online Scams Alerts


Internet Safety First!


Ensure all online communications, especially with people you don’t know, can be easily monitored by your parents. If you are under 18, communicate with your parents that you will be building your business by utilizing social media, email, and audience-reaching platforms to market your business and sell your products/services. They must be aware of your online activity. If this course is being taught in a school setting or virtual), permission (click the permission link to access the form) from parents/guardians is required.


In our live settings, our instructors will be closely monitoring each student’s online activities. On our laptops/phones, the sites and apps we’ll be mainly utilizing and accessing are:



Never meet, in person, with anyone alone, ever. If you schedule an in-person meeting/lesson/session, have an adult accompany you. If you are engaging with clients in a virtual setting, be sure an adult can monitor your sessions.


Never share personal information online with others, such as your birthdate, home address (unless you are operating your business out of your home), social security number, or other sensitive information. Keep all interactions professional. Report anything unusual or inappropriate to me or your parents/guardians immediately. Be safe!


Activity: Scam Alerts Let’s take a minute to talk about some of the SCAMS that are circulating online. Examples; scammer emails from Paypal, Facebook, Credit Card/Banks, IRS, etc. Notes: Always look at the web address. If you click on any of these email links, notice if the web address is gibberish. For instance, if I get an email from Paypal telling me to log in, I’ll click on the link and then get redirected to a page that looks IDENTICAL to PAYPAL. BUT…….the web address is absolute gibberish, and it won’t appear as a www.paypal.com web address as it should. Nigerian Prince: Discuss those emails from the estate of a dead prince in Nigeria giving away millions of dollars to anyone who responds to their plea. They will ask for personal information or a payment of $1,000 to release the millions. Approach everything online with extreme caution.
