Financial lessons from The Tinder Swindler

Here are 6 ways to avoid being heartbroken and scammed financially.

1. Be wary of unsolicited investment offers from new acquaintances or love interests.

2. Don’t invest or send money on the advice of someone you meet through social media or a dating site.

3. Walk away from “guarantees” of high returns with little or no risk. Investments are risky.

4. Ignore the FOMO. Resist the pressure to invest immediately. Take your time, research your investment opportunities.

5. Get independent third-party advice.

6. Ask a ton of questions until you get satisfactory answers.
