In the meantime, here are some simple steps you can take to prevent yourself from becoming a repeat victim of other advanced fee fraud.
What is advanced fee payment fraud?
Advance fee fraud is when fraudsters convince victims to make advance or upfront payments for goods, services and/or financial gains that do not materialise. Once the criminals have received payment, they cease contact with the victim.
How to protect yourself from advanced fee payment fraud:
Scam messages:Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.
Advanced payments: Unsolicited offers of large sums of money in return for a small upfront payment should always raise a red flag. Never respond to any requests to send money, or have money transferred through your account by someone you don’t know and trust.
Payment method: Avoid payments via bank transfer as it offers you little protection if you become a victim of fraud. Instead, use a credit card or payment services such as PayPal.
What to do if you’ve been a victim of advanced fee payment fraud:
If you have made a payment:Inform your bank as soon as possible, they can help you prevent any further losses. Monitor your bank statements regularly for any unusual activity.
You could be targeted again:Fraudsters sometimes re-establish contact with previous victims claiming that they can help them recover lost money, this is just a secondary scam. Hang up on any callers that claim they can get your money back for you.
