In the last few years, the business world has experienced different problems. One of the challenges business people have faced is that there have been individuals who do not want to earn money legally and so they earn a living through deceit, manipulation or they offer false promises. People who con clients usually claim that they do genuine business. Then, they use lies or tricks to convince people to share personal information or send money expecting that the conmen will offer them goods or services.
Con artists use different strategies to get information or money from the people they target.One of them is calling and pretending to be a representative of a reputable organization. This strategy usually works because people believe that they are talking with a trustworthy person and they assume that the information they share will be safe. The other strategy con men use is sending emails requesting people to share personal or financial information. Some con men even include an account number on the email and they ask people to send a certain amount of money to the bank.
Some people know the different ways people lose money or personal information to con artists and they share this information so that individuals can know how to manage con artists.One of the people who have been very passionate about helping people avoid losing money and information to conmen is Charleston Capital Holdings CEO, Mike Asimos.He recently shared his experience with con men to help young people know how con artists operate and how to avoid becoming victims. Michael w asimos shared information of how con men approached him pretending to be genuine business people and he almost fell into their trap. Mike continues explaining how he managed to know that the con men were not trustworthy and how he managed to stop them before stealing his money.
Most memories of the times Mike almost fell victim to con artists are vivid in his mind.He notes that may con artists approached him because he was naive and he trusts people easily. Mike says that he learnt something each time someone tried to con him. One of the things he learnt was that it is not a good idea to trust everyone because some people are different from how they appear. Mike advises people to do due diligence before accepting to share information or send money to strangers.
Mike’s main reason for sharing his experiences is to help young people identify red flags and take measures to stop con men from acquiring their information or stealing their money. Refusing to share personal information and cancelling deals when people feel that the individuals they are dealing with are not trustworthy are some of the measures he advises people to take.Mike also advises young people to ask as many questions as possible so that they can determine whether they are dealing with trustworthy people.
