This scam became very prevalent lately in the online world especially in the last few months. You might receive a message, advertising a company that is willing to pay if you give them positive testimonials. The offer comes mostly via e-mail, but it has been reported that in a few cases came as voicemail and text message.

The ‘company’ provides a phone number where you can call and find out more information about the paid testimonials. Once you call that number, somebody will ask you a few questions and then say you qualify for the payment.

They claim to pay a few hundred dollars for a couple of testimonials, but – because they are afraid that you might get the money and not leave any testimonials – they will ask you for a deposit, somewhere around $50 – “just to make sure people are serious”. Victims fall for this scam, as they pay the deposit but never receive any follow-up information.
