Skeptics Are Safer

Social networks such as Facebook are full of scams, but a healthy dose of skepticism will help to keep you safe online.

The most important thing to remember is we are only human, and anyone could be tricked by a scam.  Just because someone you trust has shared a Facebook post, does not mean it is true.

Is it official?

Scammers often pretend to be organisations or companies who we trust & the scams are often very similar to official promotions, so how do you tell the difference?

All official promotions by well known companies and organisations will link back to either their official website or their official Facebook page.  If the post is not linked to an official page, it is probably a scam.

Is it too good to be true?

There are a lot of unbelievable deals available on the internet, but sometimes those deals are a little too unbelievable.

If a deal seems too good to be true, be sure to read all the fine print and find independent reviews of both the product and the shop selling it.
