People don’t always have a flawless process when buying goods or services. For instance, they lose their hard earned money to con men that use different tactics to acquire money illegally. Con men usually change their tactics after a while to avoid suspicion of their fraudulent behaviors. One of the tricks they use is lying that they are handling a project that will offer financial assistance and improve life conditions. Some people believe these lies and they share personal information or send money to the con men.
It is not easy to know the deceitful lies or false promises that con men use because these people are very smart. They usually send mails or call their targets using contacts that people might believe are from a trustworthy organization. After con artists contact people, they ask them to share personal information so that they can be able to get money from banks without asking for permission. Some corn artists also pretend to be officials from reputable companies and they convince unsuspecting people to send them money.
Some people assume that they will appear stupid if they share their con stories and this is the reason why they don’t do it. However, others narrate what they went through and warn people to be careful so that they don’t find themselves in similar situations. One of the people who have shared his personal experience with con men is Charleston CEO, Mike Asimos. He says that he was lucky because he did not lose money or share personal information with people who wanted to con him. This is because he realized that the con men wanted to steal his money and he managed to stop them before they did it.
Mike has dealt with several con artists and he has managed to stop them from executing their plan. He managed to do this because he is careful when working with someone or a company for the first time. Michael decided to be more careful after realizing that people were taking advantage of his naivety and trust. Some people pretended to be good before they started working with Michael but changed their behavior later.
It is not michael’s wish to see any young person losing their money to con men. Because Mike does not want young people to get conned, he takes a lot of time to educate them about the measures to take to avoid losing money to con men. He advises people not to trust strangers if their instincts tell them that the people are not trustworthy. The other thing Mike tells young people to do is to ask strangers questions and vet them properly before working with them.
Anyone can fall victim to con artist and this is the reason why Michael wants many young people to know how to protect themselves against con men.
