What should I do if someone asks me to use a fraudulent escrow site?
You should be aware that the person recommending a fraudulent escrow site is usually a participant in the scam. No matter how good the opportunity seems, walk away from the deal. If you attempt to continue the transaction, it is very likely you will become a victim.
At a minimum, you should do the following:
- Report the site and the person that recommended the site.
- Determine your exposure to identity theft if you have provided any personal or financial information to the person recommending the fraud site.
