May 01, 2014 - AN EXPLOITERS METHOD OF OPERATION
Financial crimes against the elderly are at an all time high and growing. That’s because they know how vulnerable the target is (WHICH IS YOU), and their tactics are as aggressive as ever. But we can stop them in their tracks by refusing to do JUST 2 THINGS:
1..REFUSE TO WIRE ANY MONEY TO ANYONE UNLESS YOU’VE HAD THE TIME TO SPEAK WITH YOUR TRUSTED FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS AND FOUND THERE WAS A TRUE NEED.
2..REFUSE TO OBTAIN GREEN DOT CARDS OR ANY OTHER KIND OF RECHARGEABLE VISA PRE-PAID CREDIT CARDS UNLESS they are strictly FOR YOU AND ONLY YOU. Those account numbers on the Green Dot cards SHOULD BE YOUR SECRET ONLY.
I’m saying this because the criminal’s method of operation is this: THEY WILL give you a heart wrenching story to make you feel so sad that you run right out of your house to purchase a Green Dot card with money loaded on it to the max. Then, they call you for the account number on the Green Dot card so that they get all the cash.
If they tell you a story that wrenches your heart and then say “KEEP THIS A SECRET”, then you need to DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE. Spread the word like wildfire to your family and friends and if a family emergency really exists, then you can ALL WORK TOGETHER to provide the best support necessary for the crisis.
REMEMBER: The criminals are good at what they do. THEY ARE DELIBERATELY SEEKING YOU OUT FOR YOUR MONEY. THAT’S THEIR PURPOSE AND MISSION RIGHT NOW. AND ONLY YOU CAN STOP THEM IN THEIR TRACKS BY SAYING:
KEEP YOUR MONEY FOR YOUSELF. YOU’VE WORKED HARD ALL THESE YEARS so you can enjoy your life and have the abundance you deserve. DON’T GIVE IT AWAY TO THE TRICKSTERS..
