When a deal is too good to be true, ask ourselves, why was it given to us. If our parents are the ones offering it, then surely it would be true. If it came from someone whom we have trusted our whole lives, it may be true. If it came from someone we barely knew or some banners in some sites which we were visiting, then it’s highly likely that it’s fake. How many of you walk down the street and offer your wallet to a stranger?
Well, if it comes via SMS with some real sounding company brands, it’s really best to call that company and ask instead of replying the SMS by following instructions. Stop being greedy or foolish. What about a scam which preys on people who are less knowledgeable? As they say, humour is the best medicine. Please read on about something a friend shared in his FB today. By the way, this is NOT a good deal okay. What if the former Thailand Prime Minister sends us a SMS?
There are also those advertisements telling you that there are just a few units left. If it is true, the staffs could have sold them easily. Assuming it’s true that there are few units left, you will still have to know whether those units are what you want or not. Do not be emotional. Just because it is the last few packs of instant noodle does not mean it is the flavour you like. Furthermore, this is a property which may be a few hundred thousand ringgit.
What about advertisements promising returns beyond our wildest dreams? Yeah, you are right, it must be a dream. Please wake up. All businesses must work in order to make money. Everyone must work to get salaries. If something seems to be falling down from the sky, don’t go pick it up. RUN! Happy skipping scams.
