How to Spot a Scam

There are a number of signs to look out for.
- Being contacted out of the blue (also known as 'unsolicited') by telephone, post or email.
- The offer is too good to be true.
- Being asked to pay money up-front or to buy a product.
-When contacted, if the person contacting you is overly familiar and friendly with you.
-Being asked for your bank account, credit card details or other confidential information.
-Being told that you need to keep the offer a secret.
If any of this seems familiar you maybe facing or have faced a scam.

General Advice to Avoid Scams

Do NOT:

-Enter into conversations with organisations that contact you in an unsolicited manner.
-Respond to unsolicited emails.
-Part with any money, to either pay fees or purchase a product.
-Give out any personal information such as banking and credit card details or copies of documents such as your passport or driving licence.

If you have already sent money or provided bank details, please take the following actions:
-Do not send any more money; unfortunately if you have already parted with money it may be very difficult for you to get it back.
-Contact your bank, building society or credit card company and close your account if you have given your details to a third party that you do not know and trust.
-If you receive any correspondence that may be a scam or an offer that you are just not sure of, always seek advice before acting.

How do Scams Work?

-Potential scammers will try to catch you unawares; this increases their chance of being able to convince you to part with your money or personal information.
-They will will try to make the offer too good for you to refuse; they prey on vulnerable people and people who may be in financial difficulties. Remember - if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
-Many of these operations ask you to pay a fairly nominal fee to purchase your item. This makes it seem as though you have little to lose. But the demand for money does not stop there; you will be asked for more money to cover an increasing list of fees.
-You are put under pressure to make a decision by only being given a short time frame in which to purchase your item; this affects how much time you take consider the offer, and you are more likely to make the wrong decision.
-By becoming friendly with you, the potential scammer is trying to create a relationship where you are likely to trust the information they are providing you and make you believe you are a winner.
-By asking you to keep this offer a secret, you are less likely to talk to family and friends who may point out the problems with the offer, and therefore will not receive the correct advice on how to deal with it.

Thanks. I think this is very important for people who aren't familiar with the internet - mostly older members. I have a very easy time spotting scams because I grew up with the internet, I understand that this is difficult for other people. I think the best advice is common sense. Also, always double and triple check emails. There are fake emails about A and B, and a lot of people seem to fall for it.

Other scams potentially do not directly concern the buying of N, but provide a service to help you buy something like that or from the Dark Web. Getting things can look like a daunting experience and requires a lot of things to be done. The scam could be that someone offers to help, just send them the money and they will do all the work for you. It ends up with the same result though. You have paid (lost) money and given away personal details that will incriminate or could damage you if things go wrong.

A friend had ordered on N on the net, he made it analyzed, it was actually rat poison...

Never trust those who offer you N on the net ! Hence the importance of this topic.
It would be very important which vendor they used. The darknet has some vendors who apparently sell N, if it's one of them, it would be great to know.

I don't know... It was a false adress of A, with one or two voluntary misspellings. He told me he found it on the net.

Only get your N from A people (maybe B too but me personally I would buy from A) yes it may get confiscated by the authorities depending on what country you are ordering from but people (mostly who live in the U.S) got their N successfully from A without any problems.

I wish more people would have a signature like mine.
That message will appear in EVERY ONE of your posts, past, present and future.
Warning all the good people here on SS, of scammers like Rachel.
I do not see signatures on mobile, only on desktop. This is despite having the box to view them checked in my settings. My phone is a cheap ass Android, FWIW.

Somebody mentioned earlier in the thread, to turn the phone to landscape mode, then the signatures appear. I never had a cell phone, so I don't know much. Maybe android can't do landscape view?

Ah. That works.

I have auto-rotate turned off because, well, I'm old and it bugs me. Most probably do not, so they will see them.
