How To Avoid Becoming A Victim:

  • Be aware of high pressure tactics! Phrases such as "You will lose out if you don't act right now!"
  • Be aware of up front payment. You are most likely being scammed if the provider says you must pay up front to receive your prize or winnings.
  • If a business refuses to give you written information do not do business with them! If they refuse to give you written information they are most likely a fraud.
  • If you are told you will make unrealistic profits, you are most likely becoming a victim of fraud! They will often tell you that you will make a lot of money quickly with no risk involved and no training!
