Scam Alert from the Sugar Land Police Department
 
Forum Image
 
The Sugar Land Police is seeing some frauds involving scammers posing as Sugar Mamas or Daddys, asking for the victim’s bank account information under the guise of putting money into their account, only to steal money from the victim’s account and then vanish without a trace.
 
It’s important to keep an eye out for red flags in any relationship, but here are a couple ways you can spot this scam:
 
* Too good to be true—If the person you're talking to seems too perfect, they probably are
 
* Moving quickly—Catfishers will try and get you off an app and communicate through email, messenger or phone. Further, they will begin speaking about a future together and wanting to take the relationship to the next level.
 
*Poor grammar—Be wary if the person you’re communicating with has poor grammar or spelling, uses overly flowery language, or phrases that don’t make sense.
 
*Don’t want to meet—Be wary If they never want to meet in person because they’re busy, traveling, oversees, etc.
 
How can you protect yourself?
 
* NEVER SEND MONEY, CREDIT CARD, BANKING INFO, OR PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT CAN BE USED FOR IDENTITY THEFT TO SOMEONE YOU’VE NEVER MET
 
*Ask specific questions about the scammer’s backstory or information in their profile
 
*Do your research. Because many scammers will use photos they found online, do a reverse image search to see if their photo has been used elsewhere. Additionally, you can search other information they have given you, like their name, email and phone number.
 
Stay safe and stay sweet, Sugar Land!
