How do you recognize signs of lying through phone, text or email?
Curious to what you would suggest, as a police officer, for an individual to recognize the signs of a liar, scammer or predator through the internet, phone contact or texting.
The only thing I can figure about this form of communication and detecting lies or deceit is one idea I keep in mind. If it doesn't make sense then it probably isn't accurate. Also stated in the south, "If it don't look right, it ain't!"
Someone trying to deceive will trip themselves up by answering too quickly, which will cause their prior statements to logically conflict.
If it's too good to be true then it is false. Nothing is free, money is not made by doing nothing. You aren't going to make 3k a week at home in your free time 15 minutes a day. These same guys are not going to let you in on a secret method they used to make millions. Would you tell someone how you make the best cookies and make millions of dollars a year from the recipe? Anyone who asks for PIN numbers or passwords is attempting to hack or take your identity.
Difficult to detect these guys, just have to be smart and use the if it doesn't seem legitimate it probably isn't idea.
First off, I'd say if it is unsolicited. If you didn't ask to be called and have never heard of the person or company delete or hang up. Also, when the contact leaves many more questions in your mind than it answers. If it sounds too good to be true, that is your instinct trying to protect you. Listen carefully and avoid or delete them. If someone calls me asking me to agree to a trial offer or buy something via my credit card, yet they don't need my credit card number. They already have your credit card number and by you agreeing to seemingly the smallest of charges, you have unwittingly agreed for them to begin automatic charges and many crooks will raid your account and send it into the red.
