‘Theft by pretext’ – whether you are an expert or not, you may be a victim to this trap if you are not informed. You may have seen a lot of such set ups online, but for your information, they are also some operating offline as well. I have seen one in a popular business magazine in Southern Africa. It’s as deceiving as all the others; well designed, well articulated, all contacts revealed, banking details and options of payment, etc. I took the initiative to discuss this scam in my article ‘Theft by false pretext on the rise in Business’.
I define what the word ‘Pretext’ means and relate it to the so called business opportunity. The meaning is just what you see around in the many unsubstantiated businesses initiatives. I delve into the reasons why I think the idea won’t work as advertised by the so called expert. I’m a businessman who has learned customer behavior the hard way. I have lost lots of money trying to convince people to buy into my unsubstantiated ideas, just like this particular idea. so, don’t be a victim of circumstances by acquiring material that wont give you any penny back. I know what it takes to achieve success in this suggested idea. Not even one of the requirements is suggested in the advertisement.
As I studied this idea, I picked a few points that I think define the idea as a scam. It’s all based on my experience as a victim to scam and that which I got to learn as I took interest in scam. You may visit my website at yeboyesafrica.com to learn more of the experiences I share. I went to the point of publishing an audio book on the subject.
Why should I bother in the first place? Crime and fraud is the same everywhere. Its consequences are as devastating as anywhere else. You’re welcome to voice your sentiments on the matter in my blog.
