I got scammed for more or less $100 before and in our country, it is much expensive especially that I am still a student who don’t have a work and salary, it’s hard to forget that the money from your hard work was taken from you. The money that they got was from my gigs before that I really put an effort just to earn it.

I don’t really know the reason why people are scamming and fooling people just for their own sake and bad deeds, why not trying to have a rich’s mindset instead of having a scammer’s mindset, right? The content written on this blog may help you to determine the possible scam and ponzi-scheme tactics of people so you can easily avoid them.

SCAMMER’S MINDSET AND TECHNIQUE THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Giving high Return of Investment

This is the common “obvious” scam of the people but even though it is obvious, they can still encourage people to invest on their schemes and sadly, they are succeeding.

This scheme were truly blinding offer every time you see the possible income and profit that you will get, scammer will commonly send you their offers such as “Invest $100 then you will have 200% of return of investment” how cool, right? Everyone will be rich if there’s a real offer like this.

Ironically, I am one of the victims before, they said “Invest $2 then you will have $4 after 3 days” As a kid—maybe 15 years old—they got my trust immediately so I invested to it, little did I know that it was a scam… I am not into crypto that time so I used my money from my gigs but it got scammed.

Showing the possible benefits

As a person, I know that most of you will always ask a proof before investing, and this thing was already on the scammer’s mind. Of course, they will provide a “fake proof” so they can show it to the victim.

Commonly, they will give you the possible benefits that you will get, the number of people who invested to them and how those people succeeded in their life because of investing on that people. They will show you a car, a house, a land etc. that they can use it against you, they are using your emotion to manipulate you.

On the other hand, not all companies or person that are providing proofs are scam, it is the best way to prove that they are real and not a sh*t. Somehow, I believe that you can easily determine if the proofs are real and not edited or fake.

Asking for the code, password or even a seed

This is the obvious scam at all, if you gave your password or seed phrases, you should think many times why you gave it. Scammer will target weak people, they will ask for the pin code of your bank, the password on your e-wallet, and worst, if you are into crypto, your seed phrase.

Don’t give your passwords or any other mnemonic for your security. If you are thinking that this is impossible, or maybe there is no person that will give their mnemonic to a person, then you should know this…

One time, I am scrolling on the feed of my Facebook, then one person asking for a help, she said that someone asked her code from her e-wallet, and out of her knowledge, she gave it and the scammer took all of her money. This only shows that nothing is impossible on the scammers.

Suspicious links

We are now living in a modern era where everything works with the help of technology, where in fact that most of the people are using technology in their daily lives.

This is the best opportunity for the scammers to find a victim. Scammers can easily message someone with the link, most likely, the captions were “Congratulations! You’ve won 50 Bitcoin, click the link to claim it!”

Nah…if that’s the case, don’t click the link. Did you know that there are links that once you clicked it, it’s possible that your passwords, pin code or anything related to security can be taken? That’s why I didn’t click random links especially if it is suspicious.

One more thing is, when you opened the link and it is asking to log in on your social media or bank accounts, trust me, don’t put your credentials. It is one of the techniques of expert scammers, the phishing.

According to Wikipedia, Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive details impersonating oneself as a trustworthy entity in a digital communication.

CONCLUSION

In the digital world, we need to be aware of everything. One wrong click can take all of your information including your credentials. Before clicking the link, observe if it is suspicious based on their domain. Scammers are everywhere, don’t be a fool and greedy. Think before you click because once you’ve done, you can’t take it back easily.

Before this article ends, let me ask you a question, what do you think is the reason of why scammers exist? Is it because there are fools and not careful people? Or they are just born and made to fool a person?

I would say, scammers are one of the smartest people on earth. They can scam people even the most educated ones. Sadly, they used their brains to something BS because all they care about is money. They don't care about you at all, just themselves. Therefore, I would also conclude that these kinds of people are also lazy because they prefer to earn easy money than do all the hard work.

Indeed, they are even using God to scam people, I remember when someone told me “Swear it to God, this is not a scam” but I had a background check then found out that he's a scammer.
