Survival English: Scammed!


a scam: 詐欺 to be scammed: 〈人を〉だます

Recently, a teacher/marketer tried to scam me. It’s unbelievable. He sells business services. He lies about them. This is a terrible thing to do. A teacher should be honest, don’t you think so?

If you are in Japan, be careful. Japanese and people living in Japan are a target for scammers. This scammer lives in the US, but he is British. This is because some people in the US think that people in Japan are polite, so they are easy to scam (easy to trick).

How does a scammer behave?

How do you protect yourself when you travel to foreign countries, like the US?

In future posts, I will give you tips on how to avoid being scammed.
