Conversation Exchange is a large community with people from all over the world. Unfortunately, this also attracts individuals interested in making money using any sort of illegal scams.
Please do not trust any user unless you built a long relationship. And even though be on the watch as some of them take their time to build trust and then make a fraudulent request.
Usually a scammer will make a fake identity to trick you. Even though he will offer to help by claiming to be from an English-speaking country you might notice some major errors in his English.
Some of the most common stories a scammer might use are:
These are all made up stories to trick you and build compassion, trust and interest in order to then request a favor which in most cases requires a payment of some sort. If you want an additional list of made up stories please check this link.
In most cases he will immediately ask you not to use Conversation Exchange and move to personal e-mail or other chat applications like hangout, skype, etc. Conversation Exchange messaging is more secure as it won’t reveal your email or chat IDs.
