Here are some tips to help you avoid some common internet scams:
-Be aware that wiring money is equivalent to sending cash.
-Con artists often insist that people wire money, especially overseas, because it‘s nearly impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money. Don‘t wire money to strangers or to anyone who wants to keep the request a secret.
-Never agree to deposit a check and wire money back, no matter how convincing the story may be.
-Use your common sense. If someone asks you for sensitive financial information make sure you are 100% certain that you trust them.
Your safety is important. Honor yourself.
