Salam and welcome. ShiaChat does not allow topics asking for financial help, due to a prevalence of online scams. Please note that there are too many frauds on the internet. Beware of scammers. While it is fine to sympathize with people and to relate to their stories, make dua for them and offer condolences if they lose someone, ShiaChat does not recommend that you transfer money or items of value to anyone who asks for financial help. Because there are too many frauds on the internet. ShiaChat is not immune to it. 

  • Please do not give money to people on the internet without knowing their true identity. In this day and age, the person receiving the funds could be dangerous and sometimes on the watchlist of authorities thereby exposing you to risks such as becoming a suspect. 
  • If you want to donate money online, please give it to registered charity organisations or people you actually know in real life. 
  • Lastly, since you clearly intended to help this person, you will InshaAllah receive the rewards for actually helping.

This post is specifically about Telegram, but please be careful when using any messaging app. 

It has come to our attention that some users of Telegram have been asking people to donate money. Please only give charity to reputable organizations with a well-known website or people you actually know in real life. 

Also, be aware of the Telegram "new job scam". You receive a message from someone, asking you to complete a few interview questions, and offer you a job. You receive an official-looking contract to fill out and sign. After you sign it, the scammer will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and banking information, claiming they need this in order to direct deposit money into your account. Beware, the scammer can actually steal money from your account if you give out your banking information.
