- Never accept an offer straight away, do your research and seek independent advise especially if it involves significant amount, time and commitment.
- Do not send money to someone you do not know or trust - it is difficult to recover your money from a scammer.

- Awareness education is important, if you have spotted a scam spread the word to your family and friends.
