It’s not something that anyone likes to hear about, but being scammed is something that you need to prepare yourself for. Even knowing how to prevent it, it could still happen.
You need to know how to handle it.
We’ve been around the block more than once when it comes to our gay cam site reviews, and while we’ve been doing those, we’ve been scammed once or twice. It’s inevitable, considering.
Sadly, even the best sites out there can have scammers floating around. It doesn’t matter how careful you are–you can still end up being a victim, because they’re persistent.
It might just be a misclick on a horrible, vicious link, or it might be a spam mail that was really convincing. Whatever happens, happens–you just have to know how to handle it.
Contact customer support.
Your first line of defense is in customer support. If you contact them first and foremost, you have a really good chance of having everything handled accordingly.
This is why it’s so important to be on a site that has its shit together, and can really take care of you. If you’re using a site that’s taking care of you, you’ll probably be fine.
Just make sure that you know the who, how, and when of it all when you contact them. Be honest and truthful, and don’t be embarrassed. The important thing is getting it taken care of.
Close any credit cards.
We highly recommend keeping all of your cam site ventures to one credit card, because that makes it a lot easier to handle a situation if it’s compromised during a scam.
Whatever you do, however, just close that card. It’s going to prevent any further gay cam site rip offs, and keep you safe in the meantime when you’re dealing with it.
We usually just try to confine everything to one card for this reason. If they can’t get to any other cards, then your life is going to be a lot easier and less stressful in general.
Run your virus protection.
If you take the time to run your virus protection after you’ve been scammed, you will end up being a lot safer. Even if it wasn’t malware that you ended up with, it’s a good idea.
A lot of the times, clicking on a malware link will make your virus protection start up, anyway. Just make sure that it’s doing what it needs to do, and that you’re protected.
Covering all of these bases will, for the most part, insure that you come out of the scamming okay. Just be more vigilant in the future, and don’t beat yourself up about it.
That’s just something you’re going to have to accept when you’re using cam sites, because hey, there are some assholes out there. You’re not one of them, though!
