I hate scammers and I don’t know if you too hate them the way I do? If so, do you know how to prevent and or to get rid of them? Formally on Facebook and now to emails, their ways and tricks seem to have remained the same for all the years with minor changes since it all begins with a friendship request email to a billion dollar deal which requires bank, western union and electronic wire money transfers.
When I wrote my other articles about Facebook scams, offline scams, and those common scam practices on the internet including the world and Africa, it looks like I touched many of them and their reaction was to resort to the email alternative and targeting me in the very first step but guess what, I can see and trace all of such unlike many who don’t know how it works and end up falling victims.
Scamming activities not only end online but too are rapidly spreading offline through the different ways for example the Airtel fake winning ongoing scam, talk time scams, item shipping and collection scams and many others. These all target the different people and nothing too is being done just like it has been on Facebook and like it is on Emails.

How To Deal With Them/Get Rid Of Them?
This is simple. Simply ignore such mails and never respond to them. You will be safer when you don’t make any exchanges however much the mails seem promising. Additionally, you should never share your email-address publicly on social sites since that will curb on the many to know it and possibly use it there own ways.
