Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.
This is an example of an increasingly common type of scam message: a “meta-scam.” Scammers realize that most people are alert for online frauds, so they play on that awareness to try to trick people. You’ve gotten scam messages before, they say, and we are here to compensate you for your previous losses. It’s a clever trick, but that’s all it is: just another way to pick your pocket.
