All ye shoppers on Instagram, beware of scammers

Scammers and 419ers have moved from the typical way of scamming people to using social media to do their jobs.

In the past it has always been either they walk up to you, cook up a story and dupe you. It evolved to hacking into prominent peoples email accounts to solicit for funds.

They have upgraded their strategies now. Now they create a dummy social media account, advertise they are into one kind of business or the other, unsuspecting victims then fall prey to them.

It’s easy to fall prey to be prey because not all goods can be paid for upon deliveries, some actually ask for payment, so the goods can be ordered and then delivered.
