If it seems too good to be true, it probably IS too good to be true. And therefore, it's probably not true. How many times do we hear in the news that someone fell for a scheme where they were promised something that seemed totally unreasonable, but was advertised that it was legitimate? I often get messages about reducing home mortgage or my college loan. I tear them up because I know they want to charge a ton of interest so that they can make my monthly payments lower. Sounds good, but in the end i owe a ton more money. Always ask questions and make sure you know every detail about something you are going to put a big investment into.
