They best way to avoid scams is awareness. If you know how these scammers work and how to look for whether something is a scam or legit, you are less likely to become one of the many victims of these crime.

One basic hint to keep in mind on determining whether something is a scam is when someone contacted you unexpectedly. Most scams start with an approach through a message or call you weren’t expecting.

Once they’ve got your attention and interest to what they offered, they will eventually lead to a request for money or personal information. Scammers ask you to do things like enter details on a website, answer questions in a survey, or pay upfront for what they have promised.
