Recovery pitch

Scam medium:

  • Phone and fax
  • Email and text


  • Individuals

If you've been a victim of a scam, scammers may target you again with a promise to get your money back.

They may pretend to be from a government or law enforcement agency and request your help as part of a "sting" operation to take down the scammers who stole your money.

Alternatively, they may say that your money has been recovered. To get your money back, you need to pay an advance fee.
