The following websites have been brought to our attention by consumers in relation to a scam operation. We strongly urge consumers to immediately stop all communication with these fraudulent entities.
Pet Scam Websites
Pet scams involve deceiving people into paying for non-existent or undelivered pets. Scammers use fake ads on websites, social media, and classifieds to advertise pets. Examples include offering rare pets, puppies, or free shipping. To avoid being scammed, always verify the seller’s legitimacy before sending money. For more information, read this post.
Online Shopping Scams
Scam shopping websites are fraudulent online stores that trick consumers into making purchases by offering products at extremely low prices. However, these websites often do not send the purchased products or provide fake tracking information, leaving the customer with nothing to show for their money. In addition, they may steal personal information such as credit card details, names, and addresses, putting the customer at risk for identity theft and financial fraud. It is important to thoroughly research a website before making a purchase and to only buy from reputable and trustworthy sources.
Inheritance Scam Websites
Fake inheritance scams trick individuals with fake claims of inheritance through a large sum of money or valuable property. A scammer posing as a lawyer, government official, or wealthy family member demands payment of fees or taxes before releasing the inheritance. They use fake documents and persuasive language to steal money from the victim, leaving them empty-handed. Stay vigilant of unsolicited inheritance offers and verify their legitimacy before sending any funds. For more information, read this post.
Re-shipping scams are fraudulent schemes where individuals are recruited to receive and re-ship packages containing stolen or illegal items. The scammers often pose as a legitimate company and offer payment for receiving and resending the packages, usually to another country. However, the recipient becomes involved in illegal activity and can face legal consequences if caught. In addition, their personal information and address may be used for future criminal activities.

Investment scam websites are fraudulent online platforms that promise unrealistic returns to trick people into investing money. They use misleading information and false claims, but once they receive the investment, the scammers disappear and investors lose their money.
Loan Scam Websites
Loan scams are on the rise and pose a serious threat to individuals in need of financial assistance. These fraudulent websites, which promise quick and easy loans in exchange for an upfront fee, are luring unsuspecting victims with the false promise of no credit checks or other requirements. However, these scams leave a trail of financial devastation as they vanish with their victims’ hard-earned money, once the upfront fee has been paid.

Crypto Cloud Mining Scams
Cryptocurrency cloud mining scams are a type of investment scam that promises high returns on investment by providing cloud-based mining services. In reality, these scams are just Ponzi schemes designed to take money from unsuspecting investors and run. The scam works by requiring investors to pay upfront for cloud mining contracts. Once the payment is made, the scammers use the funds to pay out early investors and keep the rest for themselves. In some cases, the scammers may even set up a fake mining operation using rented hardware or falsified data to make it seem like they are actually providing a legitimate service. However, once enough new investors stop pouring in, the scam falls apart and the scammers disappear with the remaining funds. Investors are left with nothing, and in some cases, may even have trouble recovering their initial investment.
Debt Collection Scams
Debt consolidation scams are fraudulent operations that promise to help consumers pay off their debt, often at a lower interest rate. However, the services offered by these companies are often more expensive than other debt-relief options and may involve hidden fees, excessive charges, and even fraudulent activities.
