Online scams are a growing threat, with scammers using increasingly sophisticated techniques to trick people into giving away their personal information or money. To help protect yourself from falling victim to these scams, it is important to be aware of the most common types of scams and to know how to protect yourself.
Examples of common scams include:
- Phishing scams, where scammers send fake emails or texts claiming to be from a legitimate company or organization, and trick the user into entering their personal information on a fake website.
- Lottery or sweepstakes scams, where scammers claim the victim has won a prize or lottery but must pay a fee or provide personal information in order to claim it.
- Nigerian letter scams, also known as “419” scams, where the victim is promised a large sum of money in exchange for helping to transfer funds out of a foreign country, but ultimately never receives the funds after providing personal information or making upfront payments.

However, upon closer examination, our investigators discovered that the website was a carbon copy of an existing dealership located in a different state.
