Congratulations! You’ve Just Been Selected For A Scam!
When prices are high and income is low, many of us can become more vulnerable to scams. Let’s face it, if there is a chance for easy money, most of us want to find out how to get in on it! Scammers know this, and they are relentless. It’s important to alert because scams are everywhere. You have to be very careful. I understand this first hand, because I get dozens of fraudulent emails trying to scam me every week. And I delete them immediately! But I know that many others entertain them and, in fact, get duped by them. And end up losing hundreds or thousands of dollars. It’s so sad!
Here are examples of what you might receive: 1. Congratulations, you have been selected to receive a $500 Gas Card. 2. Someone has tried to sign into your social media account. 3. Someone has attempted to login to your bank account. Although they might sound authentic and seem like the answer to your current situation, think before you act. Before you pay attention to any of the scams and give your personal information, ask yourself some important questions: 1. Why is someone giving me something? 2. How did I get signed up? 3. Do I even have that social media account? 4. Do I even have an account at that bank? 5. How come the email refers to me by my email address and not by my name? Etcetera, etcetera. I know that you might be afraid of missing out on this great opportunity. But the only thing that you are going to be missing out on is a big, fat scam!
Remember, there are no quick fixes. If it looks too good to be true, then it most likely is. Many people are struggling with money issues, including high debt. That makes them easy targets for scams. The solution begins with taking a few important steps. Your first step should be to try to get things under control. Trying to get more money to help your current financial situation will not necessarily solve your problems. In fact, more money might just continue the problem if you don’t make other changes. You need to admit your problem(s), change your mindset, and begin to budget your money so you can decrease your debt, increase your savings, and change your life. This will mean keeping a closer eye on your finances and being just as relentless or more relentless than those who are trying to take your money from you. It will take patience, consistency, and commitment. I know it’s easier said than done, but you have what it takes. You can do it! All the best.
