Scam ads usually follow the same pattern. Before continuing with an offer, be wary if:
- The advertiser asks you to pay an amount of money in advance. Often, these offers are so good they are difficult to refuse. Fraudsters will ask you to pay before you can even visit the house, see the car, etc. Request to see it in person before making any kind of payment.
- The advertiser wants you to pay through platforms like Western Union or Moneygram. Be careful if you are offered a deal through one of these agencies and make sure the seller is trustworthy.
- The job offer is abroad and you are asked to pay to process the documents. Under no circumstances, you will have to pay to apply for a job.
- The price is below the market average. Above all, be wary if the advertiser tells you that he is out of town and, again, wants some money upfront. Common sense is and will always be your best ally. Do not rely on offers that are too good to be true!
