To keep your money safe and prevent frauds, check if you are sending money to:
Someone who is unknown or whose identity you cannot verify.
A person you met online or on a dating site, for financial assistance such as airline ticket, bills for medical care, assistance to a relative, repayment of a check, investment in a business opportunity, etc.
To collect a winning prize or lottery, to receive inheritance money, to receive a recharged credit card or to obtain a loan proposal, repayment of bank fees or attractive investments.
In response to an offer on the web, a letter or phone call where you were asked to send money for a “job offer,” work as a “hidden client” or “charity.”
For a person in your country or abroad, who claims to be your relative who needs cash due to “case emergency.”
To purchase goods/services via the Internet or otherwise.
In response to an offer that sounds cheap compared to the market price or a proposal that seems “too good to be true” and you cannot independently verify the caller’s identity and the correctness of the claims.
Make sure that the person to whom you are sending the money is familiar to you and that you have all his identifying information. If you are unsure of the beneficiary’s identity – DO NOT send the money.
It is imperative to remember that GMT and its agents cannot bear any liability for providing the service and performing the transfer of funds made at your request and therefore should be exercised with extreme caution.
