Recognizing Scams

Most scams attempts involve one or more of the following:

  • Email or text from someone that is not local to your area.
  • Vague initial inquiry, e.g. asking about "the item." Poor grammar/spelling.
  • Western Union, Money Gram, cashier check, money order, Paypal, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee."
  • Inability or refusal to meet face-to-face to complete the transaction.
  • Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
  • Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, Paypal account, etc).
