We have been receiving a lot of feedback about Internet scammers contacting our Begslist Community on Begslist.org with offers of donation, but in order to get the donation you must send back a fee or money back to the person offering the donation. This is a scam! There are also other scams offering false hope to our users by contacting our Begslist community through the email that the registered on Begslist.org.
The SCAMS STOP HERE!!! Begslist is working on a way to stop scam and con artists from contacting our Begslist Community, so that Begslist.org becomes a safer place to ask for donations from the kindness of others.
How do scam and con artists contact our Begslist Community?
They do this by clicking on your PayPal donation button and seeing your contact email address.
What we are planning to do about scammers?
We are integrating a new donation system into Begslist called WePay. WePay is just as safe and as secure as PayPal, but it will hide your email address from scammers when they go to your donation page. The con artists will not be able to contact Begslist users and the only way they can send you a donation (if they are truly going to give to you) is through WePay.
You should not accept any donations through any other forms (personal check, wire transfer, cashiers check) because they could be counterfeit. Using a online secure payment system like WePay will help you receive donations without the worry of being scammed.
We should have this new payment system integrated into the new website for this holiday season, so stay tuned!
