"Tis The Season For Those Scammers. Wawa Wawa Watch Your Bank Account."

Tis the season for those scammers. Wawa Wawa watch your bank accounts. 

It's that time again for those Holiday scammers trying to take your hard earned cash.

These terrible people are everywhere from every country and every nation. They prey on people every day. It doesn't need to be just the Holidays,

What is a sad fact is there are thousands and thousands that fall into their webs daily. 

Some holiday scams include cell phone shopping apps and online computer deals. Here's a tip for computer deals make sure you are on a secure server when you shop and the way to tell that is the padlock symbol needs to be next to the web address on the left.   

If you enter a site and it has a red strike through the address or the padlock is missing or something just doesn't look right do not enter your information or buy anything there.

Cell phone apps will just take you to a different site completely and when you order they will empty your bank account. Just do some simple research before you purchase.

Here's a sample type letter I got years ago and I was not sure what to think of it. I never knew about scammers when the internet first came about. When email became the thing then the scammer industry got very rich. Don't even reply to them.

Good Morning

I am Falix Joel I contacted you concerning this fund $ 8.5 Million dollars deposited in a bank here by my late client who bear the same name with you. reply for more details, (attorneyjoel.tg@gmail.com)

Thanks You,

Barrister Falix Joel.Esq
 
 


Other scams include things on Craiglist. There are people that will purchase an item from you and give you a cashier check that is more than the item was worth and they ask you to pay them the extra in cash so they can pay for something they need to do to get the item shipped somewhere. This should raise a red flag but sadly it does not. The seller brings the check to the bank and it does clear. When you don't expect it the bank tells you the check is fake and you all the money back. 

Then there are the phone calls that tell you that you are a winner and you need to send them money to get your prize. Don't ever.

Then there are people that say they are the IRS and they are going to freeze your bank account or send the police to arrest you. They always find a way to scare you so you will pay up. 

There was even a job on Craigslist that my husband applied for years ago to drive a Doctor's wife around that was coming to the states. They would send a car for you to pick her up at the airport and be her driver for a week. But first, they sent a check for over 4 grand for a job that paid 500 dollars. So they wanted you to give her the rest of the cash. Someone out there will fall for that.

That's why scammers never give up. They all make a darn good living from that. 

There is also a FaceBook scammer that will tell you that you won a FaceBook pool. You won 500,000 and you have to send a small fee to get the delivery of your check and they will send you pictures of the recent winners. 

There is also a group of people that will tell you they are overseas and needs you to partner with them and take over their diamond or silver and gold business. You just have to pay for the paperwork to sign over ownership. 

There's also people that will friend you on FaceBook wearing an army uniform or marines and gives you the fakest story ever and asks you to contact  someone in the states for them. I am not sure what happens when you do. I never tried it.

There are also people that will prey on the fact we need cash and will promise to loan you anything you want and tell you to send 550.00 cash or put up your house as collateral. Most people will send the 550 and would of course never get the cash from them. 

There are so many scams out there and as marketers, it is easy for them to find us. So be careful out here.

Unfortunately one of my friends gave someone cash because they said she won a prize. So it wiped her of her savings. I was a little surprised because I never thought of her as someone that would fall for that but I will have to admit when I got that letter years ago I had to read it over and over again. I never knew that there were people out here that prey on you.

Even Marketers will scam you by telling you that you will join and make a million in 30 days or less. That is not real and that is not even possible. But even if it is you will never find out because they ditch you and don't tell you a thing. We all remember a few of them.

 Just always remember if it doesn't look right and it's too good to be true just that red X in that top right corner or delete when applicable.

I am sure I can go on forever about the scams I have seen and even been burned by. If you have one you want to share I am sure someone would appreciate it.
