The scum scammers are still at it.

They recognize every opportunity possible to separate you from your money.

The amount being sent could run as high as:

  • $467 if you are single
  • $612 if you are married or have a common-law partner
  • $161 for each child under the age of 19

A Patron sent this one to us: Within hours of the money being deposited into the bank accounts the scum scammers were at it – using every platform (Twitter, Facebook, direct email) they could find to tell you that you are entitled to the rebate and it will get to you just as soon is as you confirm your bank account number.

Losing your savings is one thing – the emotional damage lasts a life time.

There isn’t a week that goes by without our reading about someone who lost a lot of money because they were taken in by a scammer or a con artist – aren’t they the same thing?
