About this Project:
This project is simply about tips that can help prevent you from being scammed in the future. Since it is a major issue for a lot of people. We have created a website and video showing ways how people can scam you and how you can simply avoid that and not get robbed for your own personal items.
Basically scamming is another way of robbing but it just does not sound as bad but it is. You are giving up things without knowing that you're about to be scammed. Many people have advocated against scammers and don't think that scammers deserve to be alive and continue to ruin peoples lives. Although it really is not their fault, I have stated many reasons for why you should not target scammers in my website.
We have decided to keep reaching out to people and give them tips so they do not get scammed since I know that's the last thing they want to happen to them on a good day. So we as a group have come together and decided to make a website and send people the link of the information since they can check all the tips about scammers right there and even if they are being scammed on the spot. They can remember a tip and use that instead of continuing the deal. Therefore we are here to help people not get scammed because the scam rates have been going up a lot and people are not learning to not give scammers any intel since they can not tell who's a scammer and who is not a scammer. It is very difficult to refuse a deal that sounds real, But most likely the deal will be fake.
Thus being, Our group/team Has made this targeting kids since most kids tend to get scammed easily since they don't know much about scammers and what they are or what they do for a living. So, We are here to help with that. - Redwood Scam Prevents.

Feedback from the Judges:
The application is very simple and provides access to great resources. You could add additional features to the app such as tutorials, quizzes to make sure users can resolve a situation.
You could also add alerts for the user to new types of scams, since new ones keep appearing almost weekly.
Overall you have chosen a very hot issue, one where people really need help and you are making great contributions to this fight. Great job!
You chose a really good issue to address, especially since scamming has become even more difficult to detect. Information is a valuable thing and you all did a great job by identifying the need to offer users preventative measures to take so they don't fall into the trap.
I really enjoyed your video! It is an impressive marketing tool to draw people to your website.
If your team decides to continue working on this project, some suggestions would be adding a few more features like maybe screening emails/calls and routinely adding articles for people to read up-to-date news/information about scam prevention.
The video was my favorite part of the project; it's entertaining and well edited, and I can see it as a great tool to get people excited about and using your website. I was interested in how you stated that Red Wood is available 24/7; is there some way for you to build in direct support in addition to the website resources?
This is an important issue that affects many people. I'm certain your website will be very impactful!
