Don’t Get Scammed!

Don't Get Scammed!

We read about scams, we hear about friends getting scammed, and we always think it won’t happen to us.


But there are many ways to skin a cat and scammers prey on our emotions, so even people who are intelligent, streetwise, knowledgeable and (maybe they were curious) sometimes let their guard down and fall for it.


Like many others, I’ve received wierd messages via WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, etc.   I’ve also received phone calls from the LHDN (Inland Revenue Board).


And there was one time when “my uncle” sent me a message in Messenger asking me how I was.  The person had hacked into my uncle’s account, and after a brief exchange I knew it was not my uncle.


With so many types of scams mushrooming, one really needs to be very. discerning and alert.


These scammers also employ phishing attacks, so be aware of those too.


Besides money scam syndicates, love scam syndicates, there’s also a sea of fake gurus lurking in every corner.


It’s time people learn to separate the real deal from the fakes.


ACCESSTRADE Malaysia, a popular affiliate network, was also not spared  and in case you missed the story, read about it in the link below.


SCAM ALERT! ACCESSTRADE Malaysia Is Not Involved In Shopee/Lazada Online Affiliate Marketing Scams


It’s good that the scam victims came out to share their personal encounters.  Sharing is caring. Please learn from others’ mistakes, and do not believe that it will not happen to you.


Stay safe!
