Avoid Online Scams


You can avoid online scams by following these rules of thumb:

  • Deal only with local people. Doing this will let you avoid the majority of online scams.
  • You should not have to wire finds using MoneyGram, Western Union or any other money wiring service.
  • Other than blind-box employment ads, The Dispatch is not involved in any transaction. Be wary of ads that claim that The Dispatch will be involved in the transaction.
  • Never give out your username, password, bank account information, etc. to anyone.
