The internet has certainly taught us a lot about scams and frauds in recent decades — but it’s also given new reasons for people to be wary of them. One way to help stop the problem at its root is by not sharing your knowledge of these scams on social media. Sharing about scams can inadvertently lead others to fall victim, too. Manda tinder scam is an international dating scam email message that begins with a request for your personal information and ends with expensive offers of “free” gifts. 

No one wants to get ripped off by scammers, and for good reason — it can be downright embarrassing to have a story like that. But thanks to the internet, you no longer have the excuse of having never heard about this type of scam before because there are all kinds of ways that someone could con you. For example, did you know that if you share a copy paste link on Twitter and it turns out to be not what they say it is? You might end up giving them your personal information or accidentally paying money for a product they’re selling.

In the messages, the scammer will ask you to send him money using a wire transfer or cryptocurrency – but never any gift. Unless you meet them in person, he will never send you anything.  I asked Ms. Lien, who has started many successful ICOs and token sales, to share her thoughts on how to avoid scammers on social media: [While discussing] scams at our Blockchain Business School in Asia, one student asked about blockchain-related scams on Facebook as well as Twitter .

5 Taboos About Scams You Should Never Share On Twitter :

1. Never share the content of private messages on Facebook

There are many projects that use Facebook to interact with their audiences, and they often do so based on a direct request by the user. In this case, it should be okay to share a message. But many ICO projects or other companies have their own groups or pages. 

If they ask users to join and post something specific, it is best to contact them as soon as possible if you have not received your free tokens or coins . (to verify), Otherwise, you will post scam information on your personal page directly from their official page which already violates Facebook’s terms of service .  

2. Never share private information with ICO teams

An ICO is an investment in a project. It is best to talk to the team directly if you have doubts. If anyone asks you for confidential information, it’s time to contact your own security team and withdraw your money as fast as possible. If you receive any messages from people claiming to be from team members, delete them immediately and make sure their accounts are inactive before contacting the company  .

3. Never share personal meeting sets on Facebook groups or groups that use Facebook (directly or indirectly)

Dating scams often start with a person asking you out on a date through Facebook . When you meet with them, they may ask you to send money or your credit card details. The purpose of telling your personal information on Facebook is to help scammers complete their crimes. If you’re not interested in meeting people in person, it’s best to avoid any posts that mention dates and only post your contact information directly to the group .  

4. Never go outside a group because someone “hacked” the system and shares it with you

This one is very common in Facebook groups because most profiles on Facebook say a lot about users. scammers will hack into a profile, change the name and profile picture, then begin sending messages to all users they know asking for their private information . That’s why the best way to avoid this is to avoid sharing any private conversation with strangers on Facebook directly.

5. Never post a link in your private message on Facebook or message someone via their profile on Facebook or group

This is exactly like #4, but it can also happen through direct messages and not just a fake profile. In this case, scam messages will appear that are linked to your profile on Facebook . Some of these scams are very common, so it’s best not to share links from these messages directly with anyone you know .

Conclusion :

Social media is a great tool for staying in touch with friends and family, but it can be abused to broadcast scams too easily. It is important to think carefully before sharing any information or links on Facebook or other social media platforms. If you have any doubt about a project, it’s always best to contact them directly from their official websites
