    Good information on what to do if scammed.

    Fraud
    Don’t let fraudsters catch you out.


    It is very easy to lose money to scams, so you need to be careful at all times.

    These are some common scams to watch out for:

    •  ‘get rich quick’ scams – phone calls advising you to invest in shares that don’t exist or are worthless, or to buy land that is actually of little or no value
    •  emails asking for your personal or bank details
    •  emails or letters that say you have won the lottery or have money waiting for you if you pay a fee.

    Many of us get what is threatened to be a scam either by e-mail or phone and HERE is what to do and where to go to if you think you have uncovered a scam.





    In these wide-open days of contact by telephone or by e-mail we should really consider everything we find on the phone or the internt as a threat.

    You will find out what to do in Skillwise if you click on the blue link above, and scroll on down.

    I guess that most of the time it is just common-sense to be able to avoid these crooks.

    The trouble is that they are getting smarter every day, and that is where you come in Paps.

    Thanks once again for your hard work.

    Your thanks are much appreciated as I spend hours searching for good information to relate to the ROBsters.

    I am sorry, but even good common sense can be beaten by the fraudsters as they spend many more hours trying to find out how to hoodwink us.
