The internet is crawling with all sorts of scams. The desperate and the ignorant are often being taken advantage of through scams such as job hunter scams or debt relief scams. Others include work from home schemes, lottery scams and identity theft.
In order to avoid such scams, it is important to check if the company you are about to send money to is legit. You can do so by looking them up at BBB.org or simply by making a query on Google. Remember, if something looks too good to be true, it probably is!
