Who is a scammer??

                          How to identify a scammer.
Scammers target victims by creating fake profiles.
Once you're in contact with a scammer,they will express strong emotions and suggest you move the relationship to phone or instant messaging.
Scammers often claim to be overseas.They will go a long way of sharing their personal information to gain your trust.
After that they will tell you elaborate story and ask for money,gifts.
They are so desperate,persistent or direct can resolve to blackmail in some cases.
Protect yourself from scams,be careful about how much personal information you share on social media sites.
Report cases of scams.
Read,like and share with your friends.
Thursday is the date hopefully,take care till then
All the best always...
