The promise of making more money is one of the easiest ways you can get scammed online and those looking to take your money are now using social media.

Scammers promise if you can put up a couple hundred bucks they can turn into thousands but if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Cash App and Square are becoming more aware of these new scams but customers also need to learn what to do in order to not fall victim. On Monday morning Oana Schneider with the Tri-State Better Business Bureau joined 44News This Morning to offer some advice on how to look out for these current scams.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
