Advanced Fee Scams
To protect yourself from this, make sure you know the business you’re dealing with is reputable, and that you fully understand the agreement you are getting into. Be wary of dealing with people you’ve just met, or are online and you can’t verify them for sure. A good resource for this is the Better Business Bureau, which can help you identify legitimate and illegitimate organizations.
How about you all? Have you ever been a victim of any of these scam artists? If so, what happened? If not, what steps do you take to protect yourself?
