Spammers using emotional abuse
A story you should read
Backing up their outdated techniques, learned.
Technique to a spammer is just about anything they can get their hands on, and this could very well destroy you emotionally and financially, leaving you feeling very worthless.
During my research I have come across two types of spammers, the first being the spammer that starts out with, ‘Hello’ and then moves on to ask you to tell them, more about you and your family, and follow on.
- Follow your pattern of daily tweets and posts, depending on which Social Media Platform you use.
- Devise a way to get into you head and your heart.
- Done some sort of Psychological mentality training
- They can drag it out for weeks if they think they have hooked you.
However there is a third, that I have not come across as yet!
You;re feeling low self esteem, and not realizing you are about to be the victim, and you are telling this person your life story.
‘DON’T, stop and think before you give any information about yourself, your family or your plans’
By now, you are hooked!
They have you information and they get to work.
Next they say, they’re embarrassed.
‘I’m embarrassed to tell you this, but I need you to get me some itune credit’
Believe me, if they are genuine people, they will not ask you for your personal information or money
Honestly! Celebrities and people of importance, don’t need your money or for you to run out and get them itune credit or donate to their charities and have money paid into offshore accounts.
Think about it? If you live in Australia, why would a celebrity require you to transfer funds to an offshore account? They don’t! They will have people that know what they’re doing and if you are dealing with the right people you will be safe. But you shouldn’t take my word for it.
- do your own research and ask as many questions as possible
- This is a major scam that is happening to around the world.
Ok, now let’s move onto the second type of spammer
They troll celebrity pages and fan pages, looking for a likely victim to strike.
You are the target! ….. Now what? You believe you have been contacted by a famous celebrity.
‘please tell me more about yourself’.
Correct!, that is how they approach you and then your hooked. Spammers send a message accidently, not meant for you, asking would you like to donate to their organisation.
‘DON’T, don’t be fooled into this private messaging travesty.’
Don’t get me wrong! Celebrities and important people and they do participate in fundraising for organisations, however they will always have a public page to handle stuff like this, and they don’t normally contact you privately.
Procedures taken by spammer
- ask you to donate money
- purchase itune credit
- charge you to meet them
Genuine people, appreciate your support, they don’t bully or discriminate against you because you didn’t join their cause, or go out and get them itune credit.
Genuine people see themselves as the inspiration to your day and the last thing they would want is to feel bad about yourself or have ill feelings about them.
If you feel intimidated or bullied, or know someone that might be in a confronting situation then offer your support and guide them to the right people to help them.
