What is the Initial Package scam?
The initial package scam is a type of scam where the victim is promised a large sum of money or a valuable prize if they pay a small upfront fee. The fee is usually a few hundred dollars, and the victim is told that it will cover the cost of shipping the prize or money. In reality, there is no prize and the victim is simply out the money they paid to the scammer. This type of scam is very common, and victims should be aware that there is no such thing as a free lunch. If someone promises you a large sum of money or a valuable prize in exchange for a small upfront fee, it is almost certainly a scam.
