Welcome to the
world of Scambaiting!
Does somebody want to transfer
millions of dollars into your account?
Does someone want you pay you to cash cheques and send
them the money?
Met a new friend/penpal on a friendship/dating site who's
asking you for money?
Has a dying person contacted you wanting your help to give
his money to charity?
Have you sold an item and are asked to accept a payment

Don't fall for common scams like
