Scammers have no honor, so don’t expect them to play by the same ethical mores as you. The relief and charity scam is one of the most effective scams in recent times.
The format is simple; the scammer pulls up a sad photo of a child, people, etc. in a terrible situation. They then spend a bit of time exaggerating their story about these people. After the story, they proceed to ask that you donate some money to this cause.
The reason why this internet scam is efficient is that it plays on your emotions
To stay away from this fraud, always ensure you verify the source of the charity. If possible, request to see some form of documentation before you donate. Most times, a little research online is all that you need to expose these fraudsters.
