TWELVE CLASSIC CONS IN ORDER TO AVOID. We’ve all made bad investments before. Something sounds like a great idea, you’re so thrilled, and then, uh, it doesn’t work out. It’s quite common to feel shame when you’ve made a bad call. Shame is a robust feeling. You don’t want to tell anyone.

You’re embarrassed. Everything seems murky. You want people to know don’t. And that, my friends, is exactly why people thrive. You would think that con artists need to be extremely smart and creative. In the movies the con artist arises with something so tricky that the entire audience is shocked at the twist in the end.

But the reality is actually pretty mundane. Because victims keep quite about what happened to them often, various kinds of negatives are again repeated over and over. Two strangers tell you they have found a sizable sum of money or other valuables. They may even show you a bag filled with cash.

They let you know they will divide the good lot of money with you if everyone involved places up “good faith” money. Or sometimes your cash is needed to pay some professional (such as a lawyer) a fee to hold the cash for weekly or two to make sure it is “clean” and no one can declare it.

You turn over your cash, so you never see your money, the helpful strangers, or the professional again. A so-called bank or investment company official ask for your help to catch a dishonest teller. He asks you to withdraw money from your account and transform it over to him so he can check the serial amounts.

You do and you also get a receipt, however your cash is gone. No legitimate bank or investment company formal would ever ask you to withdraw your money. Shortly after the death of a relative, someone delivers a leather-bound Bible that your deceased relative ordered allegedly. Or costs are got by you in the mail for an expensive item which you must make the payments. The Funeral Chaser uses obituary notices to prey on bereaved families. Remember, you are not accountable for anyone else’s buys, and all genuine claims shall be resolved by the property in probate. A “free” inspection uncovers needed repairs that will cost thousands.
