Worst online dating emails
The seductive visions of wealth can make you overlook that you never even entered this lottery.
This scam will usually come in the form of a conventional email message.
Most of us dream of hitting it big in a lottery, quitting our jobs, and retiring while still young enough to enjoy the finer things in life.
Chances are you will receive at least one intriguing email from someone saying that you did indeed win a huge amount of money.
It informs you that you have won millions of dollars, and it flatters you with congratulations repeatedly.
The catch: Before you can collect your winnings, you must pay the “processing fee" which can be upwards of several thousands of dollars.
It's more lucrative to apply the fee to your credit balance and potentially collect interest on it! As for incredible pre-approved loans for half-a-million dollar homes: Use your common sense.
Scams have become more advanced, more deceptive, and more common, and even venerable scams from the early days still snag people.
Avoid this scam by ignoring it and deleting the email.
If you are thinking about applying for a “pre-approved” loan or a credit card that charges an upfront fee, ask yourself: “Why would a bank do that?
If only one in every thousand people falls for this scam, the scammers have won.
This one involves an item you might have listed for sale such as a car, truck, or some other expensive item.All you are asked to do is cover the endless “legal” and other “fees” that must be paid to the people that can release the fictional fortune.
