Scammers are always looking to take advantage when you’re in a vulnerable circumstance. In some cases, they might try to extract more money from you through a follow-up scam.
For example, they might pretend to be from a law enforcement agency offering to investigate your scam and retrieve your money for a fee. Kindly note, law enforcement agencies do not charge any fee for their services.
This is only one of several other follow-up approaches scammers may use to get more money from you. New methods could be different from the original scam and come quickly or some time later. Please be aware that scammers may have shared your details with other scammers who might use an entirely different approach and the new method may seem totally unrelated to the original one.
