There are risks associated with using our Services. You should carefully consider the following when using our Services:
(a) Almost all consumer fraud starts with contact from a stranger. To protect yourself from fraud, never send money to someone you don't know.
(b) Job Offerings
Scammers reach out over email, phone, texts or any other means. They ask you to do a job interview over Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Skype. They say they’re an employer and found you via any other common job sites such as Indeed or ZipRecruiter.
The scammers intentionally mention trusted job sites to get you to let your guard down by associating with sites you might already be using and are familiar with, the scammer asks you for personal information, such as your name and address or specific banking information (username and password for online banking) or an address to send checks to.
They may claim they need this information so you can make an upfront payment for the job, often for “supplies” or a “computer preloaded with proprietary software,” promising reimbursement in your first paycheck. Any request for payment as part of a job interview process is always an immediate red flag! don't do it.
(c) Government Agency or Company
Exercise caution. In general, no government agency or reputable company will call or email you unexpectedly and request your personal information, or request advance fees for services in the form of Bitcoin transfers. You should verify the identity of anyone who asks for your personal information over the phone, and say you will respond through the entity's customer service channels. If anyone pressures you to provide information or money over the phone, it is a scam and you should hang up.
(d) Disaster Relief
In times of disaster, it's important to be aware of charity scams. There are legitimate ways to provide support to help people impacted by floods, earthquakes, fires and other natural or manmade disasters. If you are eager to make a donation, give in the same way that you may have donated before, through a trusted organization or business in which you understand how the funds are being collected and used.
(e) Foreign Lottery
Many local governments recently have issued a national warning about the continued defrauding of citizens taking place through a foreign lottery or sweepstakes scam. Be aware that if you receive a notice about winning a lottery, no matter how official it looks, and are required to pay a fee to claim your winnings - this is a scam.
(f) Lotteries and Sweepstakes
Legitimate lottery or sweepstakes NEVER require people pay money up front. Obtain a letter, call, or email saying you won something (money or a prize), but before you can collect the prize you need to send money to pay for taxes, customs, or any fees? But you didn’t buy a ticket or enter a sweepstakes. This is a SCAM. Don’t send transfer money to the people who are stating you have “WON” something but need to send them funds to collect your winnings.
(g) Sending money to a stranger
Any monies received by a stranger cannot be recovered and unfortunately you will not get your money refunded back to you. "Bitcoin is a safe and secure way of sending to someone you know and trust."
(h) Internet Purchases
Have you found something online that interests you—a puppy, a car, an apartment, rent or any item for sale? Does the price for the item seem to be too good to be true, are you being asked to pay for the item through a Bitcoin transaction? Unfortunately, this is a SCAM. Do not send money for the item to the seller. They may even send you a letter or email of authentication telling you that you have purchased the item but need to wire funds first. Do not send the money. It is a SCAM. You will receive no merchandise. Once money is wired and received, it cannot be recovered, and unfortunately you will at loss for any money transferred.
(i) Purchasing a Vehicle
Have you found a great vehicle online or in an advertisement with a price too good to be true? Are you being asked to send the down payment through a Bitcoin transaction? Unfortunately, it's a SCAM. Do not send money for the vehicle to the seller or a payments representative. The vehicle purchase scammer may try to convince you to pay through Bitcoin to avoid sales tax and get a great price. They may even send you a letter or e-mail of authentication telling you that you have purchased the item, but in order to deliver it you need to wire funds first. You will not receive a car or truck. Once money is wired and received, it cannot be recovered and, unfortunately, you will be at loss for any money transferred.
(j) Relative in need
Did you receive a phone call from a grandchild or a family member? Or a "lawyer" or "police officer" suggesting they are with your family member? Are they in because they have been detained? Have they been in a car accident? Are they asking for money to pay fines or for car repair? Did a relative call because they need money for aa family member in medical need or for medicine? THIS IS A SCAM! Use precaution when sending money in any of these situations. These callers can request that you send money anywhere in the world. If you cannot verify with your family member (calling their number you had before this call, not the "new number" the caller gives you) are they are requesting money and aren't sure about the transaction, do not send the money. You will be at a loss for any money that is sent.
Did you receive a letter or e-mail about getting a loan? Were you asked to send money for loan fees, taxes, service fees, advance payments, or any other reason? This is a SCAM. Do not send money to a loan company to obtain a loan. If the money is wired and received it can not be recovered. You will be at a loss for the money you have sent.
Did you meet someone through a personal ad, e-mail, chat room or an instant message? Did they ask you to send them money for travel or to help them financially? Do not wire them the money – this is a SCAM. Any money received by this person cannot be recovered and you will be at loss for any money sent.
(m) Newspaper advertisements
Have you found something for sale in the classifieds or any type of newspaper ad? Do they ask you to pay for the item through a Bitcoin transaction? This is a SCAM. Do you use a money transfer to purchase an item from a stranger. It is not safe to use a money transfer service when trying to purchase an item.
(n) Financial Abuse
A stranger begins a close relationship with you and offers to manage your finances and assets. Or, signatures on documents do not resemble your own signature. Don't get duped into parting with your money through financial abuse scams. Scammers will try to manipulate you into turning over property and/or money, and this can leave your cash, checking account or even life savings completely wiped out in one transaction.
Financial abuse scams can take many forms, including telemarketing fraud, identity or, predatory lending, and home improvement and estate planning scams. Never trust your money with anyone you don't know. All the other above types of consumer fraud and also be directed towards elderly or senior individuals.
