Do you use payment apps? If so you need to be aware of this new Venmo scam people are encountering. The Better Business Bureau is warning people about a new scam involving payment apps like Venmo or Zelle. The trick involves the scammer “accidentally” sending you money, followed by a message that says “Oops, so sorry.  I didn’t mean to send you that.  Can you please send it back to me?” The BBB says it’s a trick – the ‘accidental’ money comes from a credit card that gets canceled – invalidating the payment and removing the cash from your account a few days later.  But by then, any money you sent them is long gone. Ever encounter a scam like this?  Do you trust payment apps like Venmo or PayPal?
