Spotting Scams and Scammers

Here’s how to spot a phony a not-who-he-says-he-is scammer who is only after your money.

  • They play on our fear and our greed.
  • There is always a do-it-quick attitude.
  • They hope we won’t take time to verify the truth of their story.
  • They like secrecy because they know that if we take the time to call a policeman or trusted friend, we’ll figure out their lies.
  • They always want the money quickly, in cash or by a company like Western Union, because once the money is gone, it’s gone and it won’t be yours any more.

Don’t be a scammed. Use your head. THINK before you act.

That’s exactly what God expects us to do before we make a decision to follow him. Think today. We’ll talk more tomorrow.

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? (Luke 14:28, NIV)

Prayer – Lord show us yourself today and make our hearts ready for tomorrow’s decision. Amen
