If you regularly participate on public forums you will eventually have someone try and scam you.
I recently received this private message from Dominika:
"how are you i want to share important discussion with you write me message or send me your email for more discussion (firstname.lastname@example.org) what language you speak? i wait for your message through my emai"
Things to look for:
If you get a private message which scores 4 out of 5 on this scale - ignore it. Don't reply.
He also sent me a message, but I replied and now he wants me to give him only $500 USD and I can help him to finally unlock his family fortune that has been held up with court documents, and he promised me 5 Billion in return.
I mean....how can I pass up on that kind of an offer!!!
You mean I don't have millions of dollars waiting for me an I just need to pay a small fee to release it?
I was going to use that money to buy some Meraki gear as well!
