A scam is a deceptive scheme or trick used by unscrupulous individuals to cheat a victim out of something, especially money.
They may pose as a family member, a friend, a lover, or a government employee. They may even use names of employees from the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to lure victims.
Scammers will say that a PACKAGE IS ARRIVING for you.
They will insist that you pay by sending money through money transfer/money remittances companies such as GCASH, or via personal BANK accounts.
