Meet Bitdefender Scamio, the next-generation AI scam detector
The Bitdefender developers have been working on a complimentary scam detector service designed to help users verify fraudulent online schemes delivered by email, embedded links, texts , and instant messaging through collaboration with a chatbot powered by artificial intelligence (AI). We call it Scamio and it’s first iteration is now available!
What is Scamio?
Scamio is an AI Chatbot that is continuously trained to detect online scams. This new hybrid solution combines AI with Bitdefender’s stellar threat-detection algorithms, machine learning, pattern recognition, and advanced data analysis techniques to identify even the most sophisticated scams. Scamio was developed in response to a rapid increase in the use of AI and large language models (LLM) by cybercriminals that makes detecting scams with just the naked eye incredibly difficult.
It serves as a personal scam detector that gives a second opinion on potential fraud attempts by analyzing emails, text messages, images, individual links, and even QR codes for malicious content based on Bitdefender’s award-winning technologies and up-to-the-minute global threat intelligence (based on billions of validated threat queries daily).
Scamio is free and requires no downloading or access to a Bitdefender product. It is simple to use, supports any device or operating system (OS), and is accessed through Facebook Messenger after a quick account set-up.
What can you "ask" Scamio:
- To check the legitimacy of a link
- To analyse a potential phishing email / message by sending a screenshot/image of it
- To process the suspicious message or email text copy-pasted directly in Scamio chat
- To identify potential scams from a brief description
Users can either copy/paste the content, upload an image, take a photo of an offline scam attempt, into Scamio and describe (via text) in a conversational manner the scenario of how it was received. Scamio analyzes and then provides a verdict in seconds along with recommendations on further action.
What’s more, Scamio never stops getting better. To understand and interpret user conversations accurately, Scamio is equipped with state-of-the-art NLP capabilities. This enables it to discern the context and subtleties of language that are typical in scam communications.
