cfortunato :

Thank you for your response.

cfortunato :

Unfortunately, I am sorry to say that what you described is a common scam.

cfortunato :

If you were entitled to receive any money, you would not have been asked to send any money in advance - any applicable fees would have been deducted from the money that was supposed to be sent to youi.

cfortunato :

You should not send any money - as you will not receive anything in return. In fact, if you send any money, you will then be asked to send more money for something else.

cfortunato :

This will be repeated until you finally stop sending money.

cfortunato :

Again, you should not send any money, as you will get nothing in return, and you will not be able to get your money back.


one more question , how can i find out when its a scam, or how do i find out if the company is legal

cfortunato :

You cannot tell if a particular company is a scam based on the company's name - as many scammers illegally use names of companies that are legitimate. The best way to know if a company is a scam is the fact that the company asks you for money in advance.

cfortunato :

Any company that asks for money in advance is a scam.


tank you very much

cfortunato :

You're welcome!
