The criminals dedicating their lives to scamming are not sending emails filled with spelling mistakes. They are highly skilled at targeting vulnerable people to scam and use common persuasion techniques to convince them to comply. Using Escrow services adds a natural layer of scam protection to any transaction.
People are more likely to be victimised if they do not have anyone to discuss the offer with. Using scam protection like an Escrow service is essential in situations like these.
The highest victimisation rate was online purchase scams ~ Online Purchase Scams Report 2020 – BBB.org
Insisting on a deposit or payment in full using a direct payment method like cash deposit, EFT, e-wallet or other payment that offers you no scam protection is an immediate red flag.
