Trust is not given overnight. At these times, it is difficult to easily trust someone because of the rampant atrocities in the society. You would never know that you can be under the claws of these predators that are planning to strip you off of your properties and other precious belongings.
There are numerous reports these days about people crying for help because their loved ones were taken away by someone who they thought are their friends. The sad part of being a victim of fraud is that you end up being helpless. It is only you who should be blamed because you easily give your trust you someone without doing any background check.
Potential criminals are roaming in the streets and you have no tool on how you can identify them from among the thousands of people you encounter in a day. They may seem nice and very accommodating but you have no way of telling on what goes in their minds. And you, who will be easily swayed by their theatrics and flowery words, will instantly put your trust to that someone. And before you know it, you are another victim of their scheme and other criminal acts. All that's left for you to do is to ask for the help of the authorities who also seem powerless in solving these kinds of crimes. You will now be an addition to the growing statistics of fraud.
Remember that criminals are like politicians. They will do whatever it takes to get your trust and in the end, they will get all things that you hold precious. Take a look at the ads of these politicians. They seem to be very genuine in their quest for the country's reform. But behind all these, they only want to acquire power and suck all the country's wealth. The lesson now here is that you play vigilant in protecting your properties and loved ones from these people who design criminal acts. You will be the only one who will suffer if you let them into your life. So, a background check is a big plus against any criminal act.
