This is a serious matter, my people. A few days ago, I read the ordeal of about a friend loses 240Euro from his Payoneer account. That was not an issue though, but the issue was the victim – my friend! He was a Tech savvy individual who knows his coins, yet… A few days later; I got a mail from my account, and suspected it was malicious; so, I ignored. After taken a second look at the email; I decided to clear my doubt myself, and I clicked to check the authenticity of the email…I was right!
The email was actually from a scammer and close to perfection anyway, but as usual; they are always in a rush, you know. The truth is that; they are not smart people! If they are smart; they should try and make legit money online like every other Nigerians are doing.
Today, I will be teaching you how to identify a suspicious email; to avoid stories that touch. At first, make sure you have a secure account for all your online payment system, and it must be for online payment system alone! That means you will have a different account for different online system. You must have one password for all your Social Medias; another password for all your personal emails; another password for all your business emails; another password for all your … hope you know what I mean? But before then; I think it will be a good Idea if we are aware how these scammers work.

They will try to have access to one of your account; either your email or social media account. As soon as they succeed to your social media, they will follow through to your email – which is their aim. You know why? They knew you have all your important details there; so, they want to have access to it by all means. When they are in your email; they will carefully go through your email and take a record of your financial activities – like your bank and online payment system. How much you received and withdrew the last time; the last time you login and make transaction; from where do you receive your fund and where do you spend them… those are the likely information they will be taking. Unknown to you anyway; when you are busy doing BIG boy all around, someone is already monitoring you on how to steal your hard earn money – MAY GOD PUNISH THEM! Say Amen now… Once they got enough information; they will strike!
Do I need to repeat this again? Make sure you use a separate, special and secure password for your online payment system. Don’t use that password ANYWHERE ELSE; like my online payment password is “Comeandcarryit?” Lol
