    How to recognize online business fraudsters

    1, Their offers are always too good to be true ; when they display their goods on online shopping sites, their price is always low compared to the actual price of the product, they display cheap amazing offers that will make the victim thinks he/she would be gaining a lot , but in actual sense losing, after receiving the money, they would send fake products or no products at all, because of the bad reviews they will get, after  defrauding many,
    they will close and delete the account.

    2.They keep pestering you to do business with them : they check your profiles on your social accounts, check what your proffesion is , hook you up and offer you mouth watering deals and business proposals, if you refused , they will keep pestering you, trying to convince you that they are real and legit, they could even go to the extent of showing you fake evidences until the victims give in to their request
