How Did You Fall into a Trap and Lose Your Money?
No one likes to lose the money that they make working hard. You avoid all sorts of scams. But people get scammed consistently and end up in a bad place. So how did it happen and how did they lose money?
You see ads somewhere or some people talk about some awesome investment opportunities where people make a lot of money. You think something is wrong, and that cannot be true. But you get to see ads consistently.
You click the link to check out their website. It says this is secure and making money is guaranteed. You also see people give their reviews on how much money they are making. You did not pay attention to it before, but at this point, you think what if this is true and people are making money indeed?
You may lose a good opportunity if you don't get in there. Greed does its thing in the background. There is nothing wrong if you just invest a little amount like $20. In case you lose that, you don’t have any problem. So finally, you deposit money on their website.
You check your account after a couple of days and you are surprised to see that you made money. Now you think you should have invested more money. It’s not too late, you can invest more money now to keep getting a huge return.
On the screen, you see you are making money. It is time to withdraw your money. Everything is good so far, but when you try to withdraw your money, it says you have to verify your account and give some personal information and documents. Otherwise, your account will be locked. They are doing it to avoid money laundering.
You don’t like to lose what you earn from their website. So, what’s wrong if you submit the documents they ask for and give your personal information? You provide what they ask for. The next thing you know, your bank account appears to be empty.
At this point, you realize you just got scammed. I did not make up these stories. Things like this happen and people get scammed. Your personal information and documents are very valuable. Think twice before giving that to anyone or some websites.
Scammers use some impressive words like decentralized, giving power back to the people, and the next generation of Web3 products. Don’t pursue something that says profit is guaranteed, easy to make money without any effort.
