– Be wary of Users who seem completely unconcerned with the amount of time they spend on the phone and thus completely unconcerned about how much money they are spending.
– Be wary of Users who seem too young and may be using an older family member’s credit card.
– Be wary of Users who seem very desperate or unstable.
