I scour the web frequently looking for and revealing new scams and reviewing them on their effectiveness. Do you know of a scam others should know about? Do not hesitate to let me know! A brand new scam was recently let out of the closet a few days ago. The scammers send you a scam message that says the money you have been expecting has been intercepted by corrupt individuals. Thanks to the FBI, your money should be on the way shortly. To claim your money, just pay $180. People are crafty and that’s why I have taken it upon myself to exploit these cons.
The message sent would look something like this:
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Anti-Terrorist And Monitory Crime Division.
Federal Bureau Of Investigation.

Seems pretty real, doesn’t it? People fall for these scams all the time. One scam I have trained people to stay away from is designer products such as jewelry, clothes, purses, etc. Inspired Silver is an example of a jeweler that has not been scammed to my knowledge, meaning no one has tried to replicate the product and pass it off as quality handiwork from Inspired Silver. Check InspiredSilver.com Reviews before buying, just in case.
In regards to the FBI scam, it seems very real as a real letter would be. It would be difficult to use your better judgement against something like this unless you know what to look for. For one, the FBI isn’t going to ask for money. Scams are very real and can be very dangerous and damaging. All it takes is one scam to ruin your life forever, so stay up to date. We can defeat scams together by sharing information.
