Here are some "Red Flags" if you get any of these "STOP".

A refusal to stop calling after you’ve asked not to be called again

A promise that you can win money, make money, or borrow money easily

A demand that you act immediately or else miss out on this great opportunity

A refusal to send you written information before you agree to buy or donate

An attempt to scare you into buying something


If a contest or sweepstake asks you to pay to enter or claim your prize or even to suggest that your chances of winning will improve if you buy something you are being scammed.

There is no reason to give your credit card number or bank account number to anyone unless you are actually making a payment with that account.

If you have to pay first before getting detailed information about the offer, it’s probably a scam.
