Unfortunately, online fraud and scams are common. Intermex is dedicated
to helping you understand the risks and identifying potential scams.
Send money only to people you know, you may receive emails from a friend
or family member asking you to send money out of the country to help
them in an emergency situation. They may claim to need bail money to get
out of jail or claim that they lost their wallet and need help for a
hotel bill or an airline ticket. Do not send them money unless you speak
to them on the phone first. Verify that it is in fact a family or
friend, make sure you’re 100% certain that it was your relative and that
the request is legitimate. The person asking you for money is most
likely not really your friend or relative.
Below is a list of common scams along with
ways to protect yourself from them.
