HOW TO SPOT A SCAM:
Names of the organizations do not exist: Always check out for the organization most times, it may exist and may not be registered so be careful not to be misinformed.
Overly official or forceful language: They are really too official and even when you tell them you may be a Ma, or Sir, they will keep on calling you the same. Most times they force you into buying their products or get angry in the process and end up blocking you.
Poorer quality grammar and spelling: They do not speak properly. But nowadays, this is not the case. They communicate properly through typing but when o call, they are so local in speech.
They rarely speak on the phone: When dealing with a suspected fraudster, try calling them and watch out for their reaction. they hardly or rarely pick their calls, even when they do, their communication is always one word. tis is a major red flag.
They cant be traced/tracked: You cant find the anywhere, both social medias, emails, or website. There is this guy that does this sporty bet business, he has scammed a lot of people through this means. He claims that he doesn’t want a dime from you, but the when you deal with him through his business of depositing the so-called #100, and then registering on the website of his, he blocks you and withdraws all your money. A lot of people have communicated with me concerning this major scam. While sporty bet is a trust worth betting site, this guy has made sure that he has defrauded a lot of people through that site. Any business that s not traceable, is most likely a Major scam. 🏃🏻🏃🏻🏃🏻🏃🏻😡 Run!
