During periods of economic hardship, more people t urn to loan companies for financial assistance, and scam artists have found another market in which to exploit people.

These criminals prey on people who are willing to forgo an upfront payment to receive money, whether in the form of an investment return or a loan.  However, once the victim sends money, they never see it again.

Many of the websites, emails, and documents the fake companies look legitimate and can be hard to spot as fraudulent. Moreover, they frequently change their name and contact information to avoid being caught.
Besides wire transfer, another common method of money transfer is through prepaid credit cards. The scammers ask the victim to purchase a prepaid credit card from a retailer and give them the card number.

The scammer transfers the money off the card onto another and the victim has lost their money. After it is transferred off the initial card, it will likely be transferred many more times, making the money very hard to track.

To avoid becoming a victim of a prepayment scam, do not use a loan company that requires payment upfront while promising big returns. Research any company you choose to ensure they are reputable. 

If the outcome sounds too good to be true, it likely is.  Finally, never send a wire transfer to someone you don't know, even if you are promised a credit card or loan in return.
