Before investing in online systems, always ensure the reliability of the company by all possible means.
2. Advance-fee Scam
In this type of scam, fraudsters request investors to pay some advance payments. In exchange, they will get high exchange money. Once investors deposit their money, they never see those scammers again.

Mainly targeting U.S based investors, these companies try to manipulate the seller by claiming errors. For example, a local agent who is communicating between investor and buyer, that due to some technical errors in money transfer, they need to pay a little. After this one transaction, clients and foreigners will no longer be available. Investors are fooled by attractive packages such as high money returns, low or no tax exemptions, and work being done without any security regulations.

If a social media company is claiming high returns without loss, an investment offer you did not ask for, or asking you to invite others, there are high chances that the scammers own the website.
