Keep your money safe by only paying for your new pet once you have the pet in your possession and avoid using Cash App.
One of the most common scams found on the app, this is an attempt to steal your money by promising more in return for a small deposit—like flipping houses but for cash.
Scammers are taking advantage of renters desperate and in a rush to find a new home, stealing thousands from innocent people.
If you enter Cash App giveaways or sweepstakes, be extra cautious. Scammers will try to trick you into thinking you've won but are really just trying to steal from you.
If you enter giveaways on Cash App, don't get too excited if you're told you've won—this could be a scam.
Beware of calls from the "Fraud Department" of mobile payment apps like Cash App, Venmo, and Zelle—you could lose all of your money in seconds.
