i'm pretty sure most of us know this.
there are so many scammers on the internet.
i got an email this morning from a girl i don't talk to much, but i follow her blog.
i honestly was confused. i really believed it for a second.
i usually get emails from people when i am selling things.
but this was completely out of the blue & i felt bad for the poor girl. so i replied:
now..are you ready for the good part?
alright, people. this poor girl had her email compromised. not her fault whatsoever.
if you are unaware or skeptical, here are some steps to know it's a scam:
- if an offer seems too good to be true.
- promises that you can win money, make money, or borrow money easily.
-refuses to provide a physical address.
-refuses to give you any specific details.
-asks for your bank account or credit card number when you're not making a purchase.
-uses scare tactics or pressure.
-insists that you wire money.
-contacts you and asks for personal information.
-gives you a check or money order & asks you to send money somewhere.
-if you win a lottery ticket or something to that sort, you contact the company. they NEVER contact you.
-research or find reviews before you look into it.
don't fall for it, silly gooses. i am the master of scams & i almost fell for this one...at first.
i mean, i wouldn't really think of myself as "cunning." maybe though.
