How to recognize a suspicious ad?

Some ads posted by people with bad intentions could be fraudulent or inappropriate. Here are some tips to recognize a suspicious ad:

  1. Prices that are too low: If a product is sold at a much lower price than the market price, it is possible that it is a fraudulent ad.
  1. Poor quality images: Fraudulent ads can often use poor quality or stolen images from other ads.
  1. Questionable terms: If the ad contains terms such as "urgent", "magic" or "miraculous", it is possible that it is a fraudulent ad.
  1. Incomplete information: If the ad does not contain enough information about the product or service being offered, it may be a fraudulent ad.
