Scam Exposing and Awareness

Hello from HeadsUp! This website has and will bring awareness to all one day. I believe everyone should be educated on scams, how to spot and stop them.

Scams will never truly stop; they will most certainly develop and evolve. Scams started out as seemingly now-a-day simple email scams, but back then they were surprising. Just like now the YouTube advertisment scams, Instagram impersonation scams and phone number messaging scams; you know, the one's that say you've got a tax rebate, or your parcel wasn't delivered pay this fee. This will be in the future completely normal and the new form of simple level scams.

That being said, any scam is still a scam; simple or small it's still dangerous and should be reported and should be made public and this is the reason for the creation of this website.
