Scams are not new, they have always been around, but you need to be aware of how to know a scam. There are hundreds of different scams out there, from investment scams to fake products and holidays, work from home scams, prize draws, lotteries, dating site scams, the list is endless.
Specially now during Covid 19 lockdown many people feel scared, which makes them vulnerable to scammers. When people are feeling scared, they act differently, and might therefore throw their usual caution to the wind.
You often get sold on hopes and dreams of what you might or could be making. A lot of hype with people that are successful and therefore you should be joining to achieve the same. A lot of high pressure sales and tactics to try to force you into action that you might regret.
Unfortunately, where there is an opportunity, there are vultures that will prey on the innocent and vulnerable people.
Always use your common sense and trust your instinct. If you are not sure or feel uncomfortable about something, then don’t join them or send money.
