Beware of recovery scams. Scammers often contact victims by phone or email and demand payment up front. Be wary of any recovery company asking for payment up front, even if they claim to be government-approved. It is also a good idea to avoid paying upfront for a service that has not been verified by the government. If you can’t find the company’s address on a search engine, it may be a scam.
Advance Fee Fraud
Some recovery scams are a type of advance-fee fraud, which asks victims to pay upfront for a promise to get more money. These recovery frauds often target those who have already been scammed by other companies. You should never pay up front for such services, as these companies are usually in the business of collecting money from unsuspecting victims. As a result, they are easy to spot. It is important to be honest about the condition of the fund recovery service, and to make sure you check out more information.
Fake Recovery Companies

You should never pay up-front fees to recovery companies. They will never recover your money. You will have to deal with them later and they will leave you in a worse situation than before.
