DON’T FALL FOR ELECTRONIC CHECK SCAMS!
We all have to be so careful with our money and information. My cousin shared a scam that nearly happened to her on Facebook, and it was almost exactly something that happened to me a year ago. If you sell goods or services online, this is a cautionary tale for you.
I Nearly Got Scammed for Writing a Song
A year ago, I got a message from this guy on Instagram. He had liked a lot of my content, especially my performance videos. The guy asked me if I was a songwriter as well as a performer, and I told him yes. He said he liked my style, and then asked if I ever took songwriting requests. Around this time, I started seeing personalized songs as gifts becoming popular, so I figured that this guy was looking for a cheap way to do it without going through some service. I told him I'd be willing to give it a try.
