Fraud cases forms part of headline news on daily basis.
Overtime, perpetrators of this fraudulent act have carefully devised means of executing their plans of fraud especially during EMBER Months, as they aim to make enough money to spend during the Xmas period.
It is imperative to note that, people either through personal experience or through shared experiences of others have become conversant on how these Fraudsters operate, but still fall prey to the Fraudsters.
A guy narrated a story of how he was defrauded of his money.That he got a text message with a link to register in a certain platform with a specified registration fee and that he would be rewarded with a specified amount far higher than the registration fee as EMBER Month Sign up Bonus, and that a sign up code would be sent to him in order to claim his bonus after registration.
He said he was excited when he got the message, and immediately he registered and also made the registration fee payment.
That after registration he was congratulated via text message for a successful registration and that his sign up code will be sent to him shortly. In a short period of time he got another message with a link requesting him to fill in his account information to enable them process his EMBER sign up bonus. In the link there was a form with column for Account information, phone number and also a mandatory field for Sign up Pin, of which he didn't receive any as they claimed will send after registration.
Unfortunately, that he had made efforts to get in touch with them on the way forward, but to no avail.
Consequently, the registration fee is gone without a reward. What a technique!!!
- Greed: In his quest to get more effortlessly without offering much led him to been defrauded.
- Never engage in any transaction with someone you don't know online.
- Beware of Ember month tactics deployed by these Fraudsters in order not to fall prey to them.
Thanks for your time.
