Fraudsters are evolving and stepping up their techniques to scam us. I took particular note about the National Trading Standards message that fraudsters are using websites, social media and fake reviews acting as part of larger organised crime groups to enhance their scam.

When checking the legitimacy of a business I am mindful to be cautious about reviews and copy cat websites. 

As new technologies help fraudsters set up a fake scenarios to their scam such as favourable reviews to try to part us with our cash I am reminded of the saying if it's too good to be true it probably is! Never will I look at a 5 star review in the same way again!
