5 Tips on Identifying E-Mail & Text Scams

Everyone gets e-mail scam letters, including law firms. I received one today and thought it would be a good time to give out some tips on identifying email scams.

1. Too General- scammers send out a lot of e-mails so they do not have time to truly read what you are selling, doing, or offering. If it states something like "I am inquiring about your item for sale", or "needing your services" without further specifications, it is likely a scam.

2. Language- scammers are often from other countries and English is not the first language. Extremely poor grammar is a red flag. The BIGGEST red flag in my opinion is the use of "The Queen's English". Scammers will often use UK style language such as calling ads "adverts", calling their residence a "flat", or using ". " instead of "," in numbers (i.e. 250.000, instead of 250,000). 

3. They Live Out of Town- scammers never live in your town, they are often in far off countries where the FBI has the hardest time capturing them. This is the reason craigslist.com recommends only dealing locally. Scammers will never meet you face to face.

4. Cannot Call You- scammers DO NOT CALL YOU EVER. If they text you its probably from an IPhone texting app, not a real number. This is also one of the biggest red flags, they always have an excuse why they cannot call. Press them to call you and they will give you poor excuse after poor excuse. If you are unsure if your offer is a scam press them to call, scammers won't.

5. Too Good to Be True- this is a general good life rule that can also be applied to e-mail and text scams. Nobody pays double for items, nobody sends you excessive shipping, and nobody is willing to give you thousands of dollars for simple tasks. Too good to be true = Not true.

Thanks Again- Except You Scammers

Thanks for your post on the vacation industry. I'd also like contribute that if you are one senior taking into consideration traveling, its absolutely essential that you buy traveling insurance for senior citizens. When traveling, golden-agers are at biggest risk being in need of a health care emergency. Obtaining right insurance package on your age group can look after your health and provide you with peace of mind.
