Following a good tradition (or, rather genre of journalism or analytics) of creating various TOPs, we decided to make a list of the most popular tricks of on-line scammers. If you will pay much attention to these tricks, you are sure to prolong the living of your deposits. Just to note that the TOP of the tricks popular among scammers represent the tricks not top-down, but arbitrarily, regardless of the numeration.

1. Registration in one of offshore zones.

This registration doesn't have a crucial meaning, having been purchased for foxed amount of money. In addition, administration often doesn't bother itself with showing the document or just places the fake on the site

2. Address legal address.

We often ask if we can attend the company's office after seeing address indicated on the site. The answer is always no, and the reason is as follows: "this is just a legal address". I don't remember anyone has attended the program's office or met with the program's administrator. They say: the office is open at the nearest future. But just a simple checkout via search engine gives a clear answer: this address DOESN'T EXIST. But this "address" trick looks convincing, doesn't it?

3. «Reports» about trading (or any other) work.

To say the truth, I don't know what prevent me from creating a diagram of stability in Word or Excel, reflecting a stable increase and certain success in it. Nothing. And nothing disturbs to do it for any person from any program. An average secretary can make a thousand of such reports. Of course, it looks reliable and I don't argue that existence of such statistics is an advantage. But it's just an advantage, and it cannot be regarded as the evidence of something positive

4. Telephone.

I know only one case when the phone number was real, and this was mobile phone number. This was the number of FastMarket. In other cases, even when a real phone support service exists, it doesn't have a significant meaning, actually. But many people consider the telephone number to be real, not checking out its authenticity. This trick is placed in this list not in vain. The most frequent case is the number doesn't mean anything or just means fax buzzer. :)

5. Reinvesting in HYIP.

This is the trick, which, as long as the others, for instance, ‘purchasing the fur of African sheep and reselling it in the South America", serves as the mean for convincing investors that the program he sees is if not the most honest, but one of the most honest programs, and this program is aware of the secret of getting success… And one of the pledges of this success in reinvesting in HYIP.

Nonsense! This is a distortion of reality. You invest in HYIP to receive a profit from HYIP by means of STABLE PROFIT? In general, I won't go in details. WE all know what HYIP is. Reinvesting can be only in those cases when the subject is the pools, needed to overcome a sizeable minimum of those programs in which these pools are investing in.

6. "200% within three days" Promotion.

Complexity of justifying this trick is that such promotion is possible only in case of creating a pyramid, and if administrator openly states that this is gambling, and that you risk losing your money, then you may try your chance. In all other cases you just lose your money, but unexpectedly. :)

7. Increasing Interests.

Of course, such marketing strategy is a defensible step. Hardly any person will argue that the fight for the client is an important element of market researches. But the issue is the investments, that bring success today, but may bring fail tomorrow as well. It's silly to think that the matter is over and you're rolling in money. In any case, all the program offering it, disappeared…

This seems to be the end. The space and our attention are not endless, unfortunately. So we won't misuse them. We hope to continue the list of the most popular methods of scammers to make you safe. Be careful.
