instagram scammer

An instagram scammer attempted to rip people off using the stolen identification of “Yuri Sincero”.  She managed to get money from someone and attempted to scam someone else.  The name she used to retrieve the money was Denise Manlutac at 156 Brgy. Balibago 1st, Tarlac City, Tarlac, Philippines.  If this person tries to get money from you, don’t do it.

3 Tips for Buying Online

We had a few people get scammed by a person using Yuri Sincero’s information. The reason they were scammed is because they did not follow these three tips:

1. Verify before you buy – double check the identity of the person you buy from.  DO NOT trust the image of someones ID.

2. Use Third Party Payment System – ebay, amazon, paypal are ways to reduce your risk, because these services verify the identity of the person.

3. No Cash Online – Do NOT send cash online.  They safest way to buy online is to use a separate bank account via a third party payment system.
