    A friendly reminder to all: 😊
    Never post your QR code on any social media sites like FB, IG, Twitter, etc., as this contains your personal data. Don’t allow yourselves to be a victim of phishing scams or identity theft.
    Stay safe! 😘😷

    Be careful! The fraudster will reach out to you or engage you in a conversation as a buyer and will share a QR code to pay advance/token amount.
