Have you ever had someone contact you to offer you an attractive-sounding job overseas?  How about someone saying that you've won some money?  If so, you may have been in danger of falling victim to a Mass Market Scam.  From romance frauds and fake lotteries to share frauds and inheritance scams, mass market fraud is serious organised crime. Judging by the number of complaints and enquiries we receive at the British Embassy in Kyiv from the Ukrainian public, mass market scams are a big problem here, too. 

We've just published at the British Embassy Web-site some some terrific tips about how to avoid falling victim to Mass Market Scams.  Check it out.  It could save you a huge amount of time, money, hassle - or worse.
