BBB Study Shows How Fake Check Scams Bait  “Consumers” and “Subscription Traps and Deceptive Free Trials Scam

Millions with Misleading Ads and Fake Celebrity  Endorsements”.

If someone calls and asks for money, you might be skeptical. But what if the person sends you a check in advance, you cash the check, and your bank tells you that money is in your account? Sounds like a safe deal, especially if it is a cashier’s check, which is as good as gold. Right? Wrong

Specifically, how scammers use social engineering and play on emotions to trick their victims.
