Avoid Scams and Keep Your Money Safe with Cash App
Cash App wants to help you avoid fraud and keep your money secure. You may find some advice on spotting frauds, reporting phishing attacks, and maintaining the security of your account here. Remember that payments made from one Cash App to another are immediate and typically cannot be reversed. Therefore, always keep in mind that anything that seems too good to be true probably is (such as free money in exchange for a modest fee).

Popular Scams Include
Customers may send money instantaneously to people they know and trust using Cash App, which aims to be a secure platform. To ensure that your funds are always secure and safe when sending payments via Cash App, please bear in mind the following best practices.
It’s nearly always a fraud if someone offers a deal that sounds too good to be true (such as a “hack” or free money in exchange for payment upfront). Never trust anyone who makes you a promise. In most cases, con artists will make you promises, grab your money, and then never follow through. Here is a list of typical scams so you can stay clear of them:
Scams Involving Cash Flipping and Clearance Fees
Scammers will promise to increase your money if you send them money first (occasionally they refer to this as a “clearing fee” or “account verification”), claiming that they have the capacity to “flip” your money. After taking your money, these con artists would never deliver you anything in exchange.
A fraud is being perpetrated if you are promised free money in exchange for sending someone money. The phrase “flipping cash” is not used by any reputable company. They are all probably frauds.
