Have you ever been a victim of an online scam?
This weekend I tried to sell something online. I got an immediate reply saying someone was interested. They wanted a PayPal payment, and said they sent me money that was on hold until I sent them $700 for the moving company to come pick up the product. They said once my payment went through then the PayPall payment I received would include the $700 I just sent. I obviously did not send them any money and ignored them. Today I got an email saying that if I didn't send the payment then they would be taking legal action. I again ignored it. Have you ever been victim of a scam?
I have never been the victim of an online scam because I do a very tiny amount of business online. The companies I do do business have been THOROUGHLY checked out by me. If the "s" is missing from the brower address (http:/) rather than (https:/), I never do business with them - no matter how secure they try to tell me they are. I also pay by PayPal if I can because they will help you if you do become the victim of a fraud.
