RSN™ ScamTV: The Rock ScamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime - is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. Warning [Video]

Sorry if you’ve been affected by these fake @facebook accounts asking for $$ or worse yet, actually engaged with them enough to send money in.
Hey I get it, sometimes when we’re broke and struggling to make ends meet, the promise of a fast buck can be appealing.
It’s hard to mitigate these assholes, because they pop up by the dozens daily hoping to prey on the ones who’ve fallen on hard times.
Be smart, vigilant and don’t engage. – DJ
