My 14-Year-Old Son Got Scammed Online Beware
A few days ago my 14-Year-Old Son was scammed out of money made online over a year he bought and sold crypto and different things on eBay he got about £20 up to about £440.
He bought a graphics card for £300 and listed it on Facebook Marketplace for £380 someone from Coventry (UK) messaged him wanting to buy it. He told him he had sent a bank transfer and sent screenshots of the so-called bank transaction to my son.
Unfortunately, my son believed him and did not wait for cleared funds to appear in his account and posted the £380 graphics card :-( When it became apparent that he had been scammed he filed a report with the Police but that didn't do anything.
Anyone who would scam a 14 your old working his tail off to make a few $$$$$ online out of nearly all his money is one of the lowest forms of life on earth, and I hope and am pretty sure there will be some great Karma coming their way.
I wonder how they can even sleep at night preying and stealing from young children :-(
Beware of scammers online and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
