Always remember:

  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is
  • If you feel pressured, ask them to leave.
  • Friends and family are best to ask.
  • Don’t make any snap decisions.
  • Do the checks and use a number you have found yourself, not the one the visitor provides.

Stay Alert, Stay Safe
