I hope you are all well and you read my last post if you haven’t be sure to check it out.
Now unto my real reason for writing,besides wishing you well.
As you have probably been made aware the US is currently experiencing a high level of cyber and lottery scamming(this however is not new but it is much more on a rise). Jamaica in particular is one country to where majority of the masterminds behind these attacks have been linked. Here’s how it works, a seemingly flawless call from what appears to be a lottery cooperation contacts its unsuspecting victim,the idea is simply you are told that you have just won a supposed international lottery,(and you were unanimously chosen from all the other 5,999,999,999 other people on the planet ) now this “magic” money however has a catch. In order to claim your prize a secure wire deposit must be made to take care of the transfer fees, to send your prize from its false source.
It may seem almost whimsical yet thousands of people have been scammed in this way and their ages vary across the board!
Here are a few tips that I believe are a sure fire way to save you from this ludicrous act!
Firstly: “if it sounds too good to be true it is!!” Plainly put if you hear that you have won 1 million dollars and you only need $10,000 to claim it then its obviously fake!
Secondly” you will never need to pay for a monetary prize mainly because they can just wire it to you.”
Thirdly. “You can’t win something you didn’t enter! The cases of winning something you didn’t enter is about 1 in 100,000 so you would be unimaginable lucky!”
Fourthly “if you are getting so much money, why can’t they just take,the taxes out of your prize money?”
This is the most effective way to get a scammer buzzed off,and really just thinking about it you see it makes a lot of sense I need to send $1000 to pay for $50,000 just take it I don’t mind a free $49,000.
So all that said I hope you have all been made wiser of what to look out for if you feel you may be talking to a potential scammer.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you seen until then stay safe,and find new ways to spend your internet life! 🙂
