Scams can be sent to you through the post, by email or over the phone. There are many different types of scams but they all have one thing in common - to take your money.
- If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
- Once you show an interest the scammers have you.
- Many scams ask for money up front in return for a “prize”.
- Never give your bank account, credit card or other personal details to anyone you have not checked out.
