Scammer Check

There are times we have nightmares of being scammed because somebody we knew got scammed. It may be difficult to recognize them because oftentimes they present themselves to be engaging and just like normal people in an unsuspecting manner. Samples of documented schemes are lottery scams, phishing, investment, pyramiding scam, charity scam, work at home scams, dating or clairvoyant scams.

If you do not have an idea how to recognize, at least be guarding skeptical about the people you meet or trying to involve you with them, it may be easy for you to fall on traps. If you have received an unsolicited email, SMS, or call telling you that you won something even if you are not joining any raffle or contest, never believe them; or confirm the identity first especially if they are asking you to deposit money first upon claiming your price. Never give out your personal or important information as much as possible. Never deposit or give out cash easily to people you do not know.

Study any business you will be investing on, including the people running them. Even when engaging on dating sites, do a background check on the person especially if you are already eyeing to meet them personally or go for a more serious relationship.
