Everyone makes mistakes from time to time, so let's assume that fell in love with one of the disadvantages of the swindlers , and gave his social security number , a fax of your passport, credit card , etc. What do now to prevent further damage, such as identity theft ? Look, if you have sent money to a scammer or fraudster corresponds to a lottery , sweepstakes , loans , money transfers , cashier's check or inheritance.
