CURRENT ECONOMIC SITUATION
With the current pandemic situation at hand, there are millions of people who have already lost their jobs and occupations, due to the economic dip that the entire world is facing, and it seems that this pandemic is going to last for some time. This would eventually cause the economy to fall even deeper resulting in more unemployment as manufacturing companies, factories and markets are closing day after day at the hands of very less to no demand.
INTERNET SAVES THE DAY
In times like these, people who have lost their jobs as well as people who are afraid of losing theirs are eager and at the same time desperate to find new and quicker ways of making money. This is very online jobs, business and trading have made their appearance as saviors for such people, giving them the opportunity to make a living and help them put food on their tables without being dependent on any one.
TRANSITION FROM PHYSICAL WORLD TO VIRTUAL (ONLINE)
Apart from the above, these saviors have been in action for the past couple of decades since the internet came into being but it is now, when the entire world has recognized their importance and worth, and have started pursuing these as their primary sources of income. As a result, the entire world seems to be in the transitioning phase from physical trades/businesses to virtual (online). Not only this, it is providing a platform to people who are new to even jobs, businesses or trades, which was almost impossible for them in the real world.
WHERE THERE IS LIGHT, THERE IS SHADOW
Until now, many people have switched their jobs, trades and businesses to the online platform and while people were in the middle of benefitting from these opportunities, fraudsters found their ways of luring people and stealing their hard earned money as well as savings.
These fraudsters (commonly known as cybercriminals) have found a gazillion ways of making people into believing that they are making the right choice and are opting for something legit, and before they even realize, they are left with nothing but failure and embarrassment.
COMMON WAYS CYBERCRIMINALS LURE PEOPLE
Whether its online jobs, online business or online trades, cybercriminals lure people in following ways:
- Online Jobs Scams
While browsing through the internet, people come across many advertisements, where they are promised reliable and most convenient online jobs. These jobs are backed-up with promises of hefty pays as well as bonuses to catch the eye of people who are emotional and are looking for same kind of opportunities. However, in desperation what people fail to detect is that these are nothing but lies to lure them into making one-time registration payments and once payment is made, there is no point of return.
- Online Business Scams
In this type of fraud, people are approached by cybercriminals who offer them an opportunity to start a business of their own where they pretend to act as mediators, bringing them business and clients for investments. They also go onto offer them free counseling and guidance throughout their business startup and initial journey.
All of this is done with intentions of gaining people’s trust and have them make payments to accounts they claim to be used for investments.
- Online Trading Scams
This is the kind of fraud that is currently on fire as trading attracts people just as fire attracts moths. Due to its high turnovers, volatility and profits, online trading has been attracting many people who are aiming to find quick success financially. Here, the cybercriminals have gone all out by making investments and developing sites with content to ensure that once people end up on their site, they end up making an account as the offers, benefits and service being offered are too good to ignore.
HOW SWIFT FUNDS RECOVERY SWINDLES PEOPLE
When people are swindled by these cybercriminals, they become hopeless, emotional and desperate. All these feelings are at their highest as they have recently lost their hard-earned money. This is when they start looking for support, someone, who can help them retrieve their money from these fraudsters. To their bad luck, they end up finding sites such as SWIFT Funds Recovery, which is also a site developed and operated by cybercriminals to lead people into believing that retrieving their money from online fraudsters is a hundred percent possible gig.
These cybercriminals claim to be the best in the market for money retrieval against online frauds and on their website, they have presented people with content that talks highly of people’s interests and asset protection. On top of this, they also offer people free counseling to gain their and give them assurity that they would get their money back very soon. Giving into such claims, people end up paying the service fees that these criminals ask them to pay, only to be swindled again.
WHY PEOPLE GET SWINDLED TWICE?
The reason why people get swindled for the first time is because they are desperate to find a source of income that is promising and permanent. This is the reason why these people get excited when such fraudsters approach them or they themselves step on their traps. Because of this excitement, they simply ignore doing any information gathering or enquiry against the company or firm they are planning to spend their money at and end up losing their money.
For the second time, people get scammed because they get emotional from the first loss. In this state, they start trusting people with closed eyes, who give them hopes of retrieving their lost money and again, fall prey to the traps and lose more money.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO?
It is almost a fact that money lost online is impossible to retrieve but what one can do is to ensure that such fraudsters do not trap others. They can share their experience and opinion about such swindlers through social media forums and report such scamming websites to the legal authorities so these can be blacklisted.
Lastly, there is a good news for people who lost their money that there is a firm name Money-Back, which is composed of people who are highly proficient and experts in their field of money retrieval. They are friendly, polite and capable of helping people get their money back from such fraudsters at reasonable and negotiable prices.
