Scott Tischler understands that here are those out there who will trick and scam others just to make quick cash. Unfortunately these scams and rip-offs are always evolving. However the good news is that no matter what the name changes to or how it may slightly change the core principles will be the same. Scott Tischler believes that with an understanding of what type of scams and rip-offs are out there it is less likely that someone will be taken to the cleaners..
1. Lottery Scams. This scam uses the name of a legitimate lottery and informs the target that they have won a substantial prize in their lottery. Even if they have not bought any lottery tickets or entered any sweepstakes. The scammers then ask for money to be sent to their office for administration fees, taxes, or some other variation.
2. Internet auction frauds. This scam uses EBay or PayPal to misrepresent a product. Payment will then be taken but a product will never be delivered. It is important to buy from sellers with good reviews.
3. Nigerian prince scam. This scam asks for bank account number to transfer their wealth out of the country. Often times the scammers will ask for upfront money to pay fees and in return promise a large amount of money.
4. Phishing emails. These emails will try to steal bank account information by stating that their information needs to be updated. The email will then send the recipient to a website designed to look real but will instead steal their information.
5. Get rich quick programs. These scams claim to help families make a lot of money in their spare time. They offer a free book or cd to get started then the fees start to roll in and they will not stop.
If an offer seems too good to be true the chances are that it is. It is always important to do research on any company before working for them.
