Scams suck, and it could be hard to see if someone is scamming. I wanna introduce you to [Grabify] (https://www.grabify.link)
This tool gives you information on anyone who clicks the link you create. It could show you if they are lying or not. If the potential scammer is from India or Nigeria (common places for scams) then they are probably lying. Even if they use a vpn/proxy you can still identify them from the time zone they are using. Grabify also gives you option to disguise the link in a bunch of urls.
This is one of the best tools I’ve ever seen and I thought I should share it with the community
Great guide! It makes people aware of these types of tools and also how to use them.
Keep in mind a IP address is not as useful as it used to be with the advent of VPN's and many more tools to mask the true address.
Debaucus You are correct, but like I said many scammers fail to switch their time zones and can find they’re time zones there too
