It’s a sad fact of life that scammers are everywhere and they’re doing everything in their power to separate you from your money.

And some of them are better at it than others, as you’re about to see.

A man named Pieter Gunst took to Twitter to tell his story about a very dangerous and very believable scammer.

This is how the scam started.

These folks had obviously done their homework.

Somehow they were able to send him a verification pin from his bank’s number.

The person on the other line continued…

Then the person asked Gunst for his PIN number and he refused.

Luckily, he realized that this was indeed a scam and that, if he’d given them his PIN number, he would have been in BIG trouble.

This was a pretty elaborate ruse.

He believed the whole thing was legit until they asked for his PIN number.

Remember to always be aware of these kinds of scams so you don’t get ripped off!

Wow, that was pretty close.

Keep your eyes open out there, folks! You have to be vigilant because there are scammers everywhere.

Have you ever fallen victim to a scam? Or ALMOST fallen victim?
