Yeah real painful, I feel like crying. That hard earned money taken just like that am I a fool?Almost like I was dreaming. lols.I didn’t even know at all that it was a scam because It looked legitimate and helpful. Sorry about that if you have just been scammed.
OMG! I hate scams and everything that has to do with it.It fehs! me.like arrrhg.I have been scammed both online and in the real world. Lols, I feel like a schmuck! and I know If you have been scammed too one way or the other you would feel my pain. I have learned a lot of lessons from the process.which I am going to show you so you can detect the next scam that comes your way.
First of all,i should tell you this.The reason why we all get scammed is our self greed .yeah greed.because we want to get “huge reward for small actions”I don’t know if you get what I’m saying.like we all want to a shortcut process to bigger rewards which logically is not done. For example we believe there might be some secret way to get the latest iPhone for $15o or even $300 dollars or for an amount that is far less than the value . Also like believing there’s some secret to wealth which we haven’t discovered yet and once we do so we’ll be successful without any hassle,like a magic.I should tell you this before moving forward. The only secret to success is persistence at that which you tend to do.
So the fundamental way to detect scam is to remove the believe of huge rewards small actions.because that is what most scammers prey on,thereby providing that kind of opportunity where you can win big with small actions. Believe me, no matter how smart or modernize or legitimate a scam seems to be, It Is always some variety of do small win big situations.
Now That you are done believing on small actions big rewards,I will show you some of the red flags to watch out for.
- Very short time limit + count down timer: whenever you are involved in a program especially one you just came across which you know nothing about and you are being forced to take action within a very short time or else the page will be taken down and you won’t be able to take that action anymore,that’s a red flag,just back off,legitimate program wouldn’t work like that,not so fast.At least you would have the opportunity to make some research before doing anything.
- Fancy show off:This happens frequently online whereby scammers tend to accredit themselves by letting you know how luxurious their lifestyle is by showing you their new mansion on one stupid sh*t island or their latest Ferrari or Rolls Royce which was bought just last week with the profit made from what they are selling to you.Lols,Then you begin to salivate and getting more into the process by actually thinking It’s true… Man,don’t fool yourself.If you see something like this.Do not hesitate.I repeat do…not hesitate,to do what?…to back the fuck out. Thanks.Let’s move on…
Free service: oh, my favorite It usually comes like this” I have enough money already,I am only doing this because of my dedication to help at 15 people get rich only…blah,blah,blah or like this ” as you can see,I have enough money already,but I want to help you because today is your lucky day and you are part of the 10 lucky ones that have been chosen…” Lols. Someone you’ve never even met. Come to think of it,are people really that nice?I mean have you seen anybody who wants to help others for free and start offering people free service without direct or indirect benefits?lols. Would you do that?In fact,you should know that free stuffs are usually bad or very low quality. The only good ones are the ones that offer quality services that have positive effects on people’s life and thereby having a gain one way or the other through the process. That’s the Hard truth man.If you see anyone online telling they are helping you for free and no gain on their own side at all, there is skeleton in their cupboard.Please and please,you know what to do….RUN.
Suspense:Yeah suspense,really how does it have to do with this? I’ll show you. If you happen to somehow get involved in a program that promise to do M,N and O or give it to you for example if you join now,then you joined hoping to have M,N and O instantly after joining. Then it changes by telling you they will give you but you must have and J,K and L first and begins to explain J,K,L without giving you what you came in for but telling you that you are still going to get that M and N and O for free but you need to have J,K,L which costs just $5.LOls,then you will have V,W,X which costs $10 dollars then another one which costs $25 dollars and the process continues… eventually you won’t be able to get the M,N and O which you came for initially.This is just an illustration,you would have understand if you have come across it before but If you haven’t just have the analogy in mind and when come across it, you will understand what I am saying.
These are just the basic ways to identify and prevent the next scam attempt at you.If you have any scam experiences,warning,comments or suggestions.Please leave them in the comment box below.
