The modus operandi of scammers is varied, but it is always about getting you to hand over your money. 1. You find a website or email address and make contact.
2. The scammer will reply referring you on to a ‘verified’ supplier. Alternatively, they will jump straight in recommending the amount of liquid/ powder you will need and quoting a price including delivery. Delivery will sometimes be promised as next day service. They often add that insurance is included and that if you do not receive the parcel, they will send another free of charge. Or a full refund if you prefer.
3. The scammer will then provide you with payment details, of Money Gram, Western Union or Bitcoins.
If your alarm bells are not going off now, they should be!
Sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true!! Scammers may even ask purchasers to complete a questionnaire before progressing things further. There is nothing quite like a caring and concerned scammer!
