Contests/Need Help Fraud

Group 4

What Are Contest/Need Help Frauds?

A contest fraud is a fake competition/contest designed to scam its participants. Need Help frauds can say things like someone is suffering and needs your help. The best way to prevent being effected by one of these frauds would be to not open or click on any of these windows unless on a trusted site where the link can be verified. It is also very important not to give out personal information or transfer money.
