Mom Warns of AI-driven Fake Kidnapping Scheme Targeting Daughter
Recently, a mother of a 15-year-old girl was shocked to learn that criminals had used artificial intelligence (AI) to clone her daughter’s voice and fake her kidnapping. The criminals then tried to extort money from the mother in return for the “kidnapped” child.
The incident has raised alarm bells among parents everywhere, as it demonstrates how AI can be misused by malicious actors with potentially devastating consequences. It also highlights how vulnerable people are when it comes to technology being used against them without their knowledge or consent.
Fortunately, in this case, the mother was able to recognize that something wasn’t right and did not pay any money out of fear for her daughter’s safety – which ultimately saved them both from potential harm or financial ruin at the hands of these unscrupulous individuals.
Parents and guardians alike need to remain vigilant about new technologies, such as AI, which can be manipulated by those looking to take advantage of unsuspecting victims. Parents should always trust their instincts if they feel something isn’t quite right – no matter what technology may be involved – and contact law enforcement immediately if they suspect foul play is taking place involving their children or family members.Read more at Futurism
