How to Avoid Losing Money or Information to Con Men
Many companies have undergone vetting and received permission to sell goods and services in different areas.These business people sell quality products and offer top-notch services, ensuring that their clients get value for the money they spend. It is important to note that some business people target unsuspecting clients so that they can steal from them.They usually call or email unsuspecting clients or approach them through social media and pretend to be genuine service providers or product vendors.
These con men usually use strategies that make clients believe that their calls, emails or social media posts are from reputable companies. Because some clients believe that the business people who approach them are trustworthy, they don’t bother finding information about them to know whether they are dealing with a trustworthy person. The unsuspecting clients usually follow all the instructions given to them by the con men, which usually includes a request to send money or share personal information. Some people that share information with con men realize that they made a mistake after losing money.
People react differently when they fall victims to com mens’ tricks, including feeling embarrassed. Those who have this feeling do not like sharing their experience with other people. However, others are glad to tell people what they went through to help them avoid finding themselves in the same situation.
The CEO of Charleston Capital Holdings, Mike Asimos is one of the people who have been very passionate about teaching the art of managing con artists.He recently shared the experience he had with con artists to help young people know how con men operate and how to avoid them.Michael Asimos started by saying that he does not have any regrets because he never did what the con men wanted.He managed to discover that the people who contacted him were not legitimate representatives of the companies they claimed to work for.
Different con artists approached Micael W Asimos at different times and he learnt something each time.One of the things that he learnt is that some people seem trustworthy but they hide their character to convince people to trust them. Because some strangers may not be trustworthy, Mike Asimos advices people to do a thorough research of the strangers who approach them to determine whether they are trustworthy before sharing information or buying goods or services from them.
The other thing that Mike wants young people to do is to avoid working with people they feel that are not trustworthy. Because everyone can be conned by con men, Mike wants to share this information with as many people as possible so that they can know how to avoid becoming victims.
