Types of Google Pay frauds to avoid

  • If an unknown person requests you to purchase something or use their services but instead of sending you a request to pay money to your account, they request your account to send them money, you should avoid making payments then.

  • Some numbers that keep making scams come under GPay radar and Google will send a warning saying the number is possibly fraudulent and you need to be cautious while dealing with it.
  • Delete apps that are replicas of Google Pay that you may have accidentally downloaded.
  • An unknown person sends you a payment request on Google Pay but directs you to a different app or website instead of Google Pay to complete the transaction. This is more likely to be a scam unless the person has some legitimate reason for choosing another path for the transaction.

Conclusion

While Google Pay is a convenient tool for online financial transactions, it is also a place for scammers. We recommend you use GPay to make transactions with accounts you are completely sure of. Also, now that you know how to block someone on Google Pay, follow the steps to block any number you suspect of being a fraud.
