How To Tell If You Are Being Scammed
In the world of business, there is one rule to live by if you want to avoid being scammed — when a deal is too good to be true, it is most likely a trick! There is a practice referred to as Social Engineering among scammers, security professionals, and those who work in customer service. It is the act of persuading and manipulating someone to divulge personal or sensitive information for fraudulent conduct, generally in person-to-person communication. It is very widely used, and is a common specialty to those who run pyramid schemes, create counterfeit currency, and even fake coupon users. If you are missing money or receiving emails from services that you never signed up for, this could be what happened to you.
