Online Scams

There are many ways to make some extra money online, but there are also many scams out there. If you do not want to get scammed, then you have to be careful. It is better to be extra careful than to get scammed and possibly lose a lot of money. Here are some things to keep in mind in order to avoid getting scammed:

-There are many websites that promise that you will become a millionaire as soon as you buy their product. There are many sellers of various eBooks that will say anything in order to sell their eBook. Some will promise that you will make $500 per hour just from working from home or others will say that you will become very rich just by doing some online surveys. Most of such “opportunities” are scams so watch out.

-You also have to be careful of scam emails. The so-called ‘Nigerian scam’ is a pretty old scam where a person claiming to be a Nigerian prince asks you to transfer some money to him, but promises you a lot more in return in the future. Do not fall for that. Even if there was really a Nigerian prince somewhere out there that needed help why would he contact you or me?

-Watch out for any emails that look like they are from a bank, but ask for a lot of personal information. Banks usually do not do that, so watch out for such phishing scams.
