Top 5 Scammer Apps
Number one would be Facebook:
Apparently, scammers use photos and information on your public profile to re-create a replica account, they warn to search for yourself regularly on this app and immediately report it to the Facebook support center if you find a fraud!
They also warn about Google Hangouts and says that romance scammers make victims by gaining your trust and asking for money and personal information. If someone on a dating app wants to switch platforms never send them money unless you’ve met them in person.
I’ve been a victim of this on Instagram because of my profession.
Scammers pretend to be a respected brand offering free product giveaways you would sign up and then give their personal information and pay for the products.
I asked a scammer a logical question one day, one they couldn't answer.
So you want me to pay you to model YOUR merchandise?
I am still waiting for their reply.
Watch out that’s how they get you!
WhatsApp and PLENTY OF FISH are the other two apps -scammers reportedly use dating apps with good-looking models as the profile to lure you in.
WhatsApp scammers ask for money, it's really a matter of common sense.
Don't send money to people you've never met.
