I am back on the award winning (congrats team!) @BBCMorningLive today talking purchase scams.
It’s Cyber Monday and that means it’s time to have your scammer radar beeping for clone websites, dodgy social media sellers and cunning countdown clocks..!
Of course, use the word “scammed” in a message on this utterly broken platform and you get a slew of bots urging you to contact someone who will scam you again whilst claiming to help.
Always ignore messages such as the below “contact xyz on Insta they can help!” twitter.com/Joseph32632702…
