In these days, business is tougher due to the many fake callers and also scammers. They are very smart and make us convince though frequent email or text message exchange, without actual voice talking on the phone, You can be easily duped.
here is the typical scam process:
The person who uses her name as Jennifer (email@example.com, (937) 756-2823 ) email me and present her plan with a large amount of money which is very attracted to the dollar-hungry business owners.
here are the actual emails:
4. Ok, I will do that. so I’ll like you to kindly go ahead an send me your cell phone number so we can have a better communication also i can text you my card details to charge through
5. then she will give you stolen credit card number and let us charge more than our requested budget, and rest of the money should be returned to her as a money order.
best way to avoid this kind of scam is:
A. avoid the customers from a different state or overseas
B. Cash only ( meet in real person )
C. check all business information background ( you can easily google it his/her email address and phone number, and even call directly. many of case, the actual person is not a woman even if she uses her woman’s name. But, It’s the guys! or dude.
