And here I stops, she or he is trying to fish information out of you to scam you so Beware Of scam like this.
My experience of the Facebook messenger is that it is full of scammers thousands of thousand scammers are trying to get money from people like you and me, be extremely careful when you are talking to someone you don’t know my advice to you speak only to people you know.
There was one who was collecting money for homeless children, and I did a little research of him, And I found there was no such thing that he was telling me all he said was nonsense,
In other words Scammer, they do not despise what they are doing they also divert donations away from legitimate charities and causes, This is an abomination.
Let Most People Know Of Such Shaped Think
I urge people to work together against this, Tell others about this if you see something suspicious, go to
Report a scam if you’ve caught them or been scammed.
I hate these scammers they are an abomination and should not exist, But unfortunately, they live, and they are in full gear until everyone gets together and stops them, they will always exist, but we can reduce them if we work together.
I hope this will help someone and if you have any question then don’t hesitate to write it below, and I will answer you within 24 hours.
