Learn what to do if you have paid someone you suspect is a scammer, given them personal information, or given them access to your phone or computer.

 

Scammers are extremely convincing. They call, email, and text us in an attempt to obtain our money or sensitive personal information, such as our Social Security number or account numbers. They're also very good at what they do. Here's what to do if you paid or gave your personal information to someone you suspect is a scammer.

What to do If You Paid a Fraudster

 

  1. Did you use a credit card or a debit card to make your purchase?

Get in touch with the company or bank that issued the credit or debit card. Inform them that it was a bogus charge. Request that they reverse the transaction and refund your money.

 

  1. Did a fraudster make an unauthorized withdrawal from your bank account?

Inform your bank that there was an unauthorized debit or withdrawal. Request that they reverse the transaction and refund your money.

Or Did you use a wire transfer service like Western Union or MoneyGram?

Make contact with the wire transfer company. Inform them that the transfer was fraudulent. Request that they reverse the wire transfer and refund your money.

 

  1. Did you use a money transfer app to send money?

Report the fraudulent transaction to the company behind the money transfer app and request that the payment be reversed. If you linked the app to a credit or debit card, notify your credit card company or bank of the fraud. Inquire if the charge can be reversed.

 

  1. Did you use cryptocurrency to make your payment?

Inform the company you used to send the money that the transaction was fraudulent. If possible, request that the transaction be reversed.

 

  1. Did you send money?

If you used a delivery service, contact them as soon as possible and request that the package be intercepted.

 

  1. Did you use a gift card to pay?

Get in touch with the company that issued the gift card. Inform them that it was used in a scam and request a refund. Keep both the gift card and the gift card receipt.

If You Provided Personal Information to a Scammer

 

  1. Did you give your Social Security number to a scammer?

Visit IdentityTheft.gov to learn about the steps you should take, including how to monitor your credit.

 

  1. Did you hand over your username and password to a scammer?

Make a new, secure password. If you use the same password elsewhere, change it there as well.

If a Scammer has gained access to your computer or phone

 

  1. Was the scammer able to gain remote access to your computer?

Update your computer's security software, run a scan, and remove anything that appears to be a problem. Then take additional precautions to safeguard your personal information.

 

  1. Is it possible that a scammer has taken over your cell phone number and account?

 

To regain control of your phone number, contact your service provider. Change your account password once you've done so.

 

Check your credit cards, bank accounts, and other financial accounts for unauthorized charges or changes as well. If you see any, notify the company or institution. Then go to IdentityTheft.gov to figure out what steps to take next.

Brother if we get scammed, and we can't do anything, then the best thing we can do is atleast tell other members who are in the same niche to not trust the person through whom we have already been scammed.

Brother by reporting the scammer, did you meant telling other people about it? Or did you meant to report them to a platform?

Brother i think in this situation, we should immediately contact support team of apps like Facebook, Instagram and tell them about scammer, so atleast support team restrict our accounts and scammers can't use those accounts to make us look bad in the people's vision.
