In an imposter scam, a dishonest person lies and tricks you into sending money to them. They might call you on the phone, contact you through social media, or send an email or text. Imposters might try to get you to pay them by asking you to buy a gift card, wire money, or send cash to them in the mail.
They might say:
These are all tricks! If you send the scammer money, you will not get your money back. Giving them gift card numbers over the phone or sending a wire to them is just like sending cash. Remember that gift cards should be purchased and used as gift for your friends or loved ones. You should never send gift cards, wires, or cash to someone you truly do not know.
Scammers are very good at fooling people! They also want to rush you so you will comply with their demands before you have time to really think it through.
Before you do anything, stop and think. Call your bank or a trusted friend or family member before making any decisions.
Never send money to these callers. If they send you a letter in the mail, do not call them. Instead, take it to your bank or a trusted friend or family member to help verify whether it is legitimate.
