Scam is next to you

Scam is next to you
No~ Is this the price of not having snow and not having it pile up? The discomfort in the body is awful.
The moment she got up from the bed, the child-crying old man held her by the waist? My waist became unusually heavy and I couldn't walk seriously, so I fell asleep for the past few days. But when I woke up this morning, that heaviness in my lower back had disappeared a bit, and I was calmer? It's easier now, so I'm working on it soberly.

Well, leaving the unhealthy old man's condition behind, I read the local newspaper and was always curious about it.
This morning, too, I feel like I'm seeing an article about being a victim of a special scam almost every day.
They are in their teens and seventies, and the amount of money ranges from several thousand yen to several million yen, and in rare cases tens of millions of yen.
The damage seems to be a repetition of the old, classic method over the Internet.

When I read these articles, I always think that 'caution' announcements don't have much effect.
I think we need to stop thinking that we've been scammed by chance, and instead announce that scams are all around us, whether it's postcards and envelopes sent indiscriminately or via the Internet.

It's not that the 'deceiver' is bad, it's that the 'deceived' is bad too.
You may think it's become a bad time and a value, but if you respond to these scams with old-fashioned common sense and thinking, you're falling behind.
It is important to develop immunity based on the premise that you will be deceived, and to be prepared to show a rejection reaction, even if only a little.

In fact, yesterday I got an email from Apple out of the blue as a survey on iPhone usage.
It's so sudden that I can't accurately judge. However, in my experience, when users contact us, we delete the email immediately because we think it's not a survey and it's a scam.

I also have multiple domains for my website, so I get a "domain renewal" notification email every day. However, since the domain registration agency I am using is only one company, this kind of mail is nothing but a scam, so it goes to my spam box immediately.

In addition, I am interested in an erotic site at the time of the first personal computer purchase, and as a result of net surfing without caring about it, I have met the damage of forced access to a fraudulent site and a virus (there is also initialization of the worst OS) as the price of curiosity. However, since this is a damage after having taken preventive measures in an ignorant manner and understanding (falling for a virus or a scam), it is not troubling.

I thought about posting images of actual scams I've encountered, but I won't post them because scammers are either proud of them or they want to use them and take advantage of them.

If the postcards and envelopes are sent indiscriminately, if you don't remember them, you can easily take measures against them.
But even if you don't remember scams over the Internet, that app operation? Or that click? It's easy for people to take advantage of vague psychology, such as "I don't know if this is the Web site from that time.

After all, in the end, it's your own responsibility.

However, we all have situations where we don't know how to solve a problem.
In this case, I recommend that you consult with someone you can trust.

Is this a scam? If you don't know and can't judge for yourself, don't be troubled, don't be shy, talk to someone about it!

If you don't have someone you can trust, the worst thing you can do is to look at a public, not private, consultation service.

I'm ashamed to say, "I'm glad I talked to you then!" "Now that's a laughing matter!" Let's build a brighter future where we can say, "I'm here to help you...
