You may get cold calls, spam emails, text messages or see adverts – offering a wonderful investment opportunity.
Perhaps it’s cyber currency or gold bars or a business debuting on the stock market or a new building of rented apartments or artwork or almost anything else.
There is a world of investments available – from the stock market to property to fine gems, but these always carry a risk – that’s why there is a reward possible.
Scammers typically offer an investment that is guaranteed and has very high returns and they have some reason why you have to act quickly or miss the opportunity.
Guarantees and high returns are normally impossible with anything legal.
Never trust cold callers or spam emails or unknown people through any other form of contact that you didn’t initiate and never be pushed into making a decision without all of the facts.
If you do want to consider an investment, then make sure to do your research and if possible get expert advice.
Don’t take unnecessary risks.
If you have any experiences with these scams do let me know, by email.
