    Garena Free Fire players must be aware of in-game items like characters, skins, weapons, diamonds among others, which they can claim either by paying money or through offers rolled out by the game makers. But, there are instances when you are being offered free or cheap diamonds from some friends or by participants in online message boards. You need to be aware that this may be a scam and that you are being targeted by scammers via such offers.

    As per the information provided by the Free Fire support page, some of the online sources will guide you to YouTube videos that promise you free in-game diamonds. However, if someone is offering you free diamonds or any in-game items at no cost, you have probably been targeted by a scammer who wants to gain access to your gaming account and your credit card or who wants to use your device remotely, the page said.

    To avoid such Garena Free Fire scams, you need to avoid clicking on any links sent to you from unknown sources as you can be fooled. Here is what you can do to avoid such scams:

    1. Ignore offers that seem too good to be true: In order to avoid in-game currency scams you need to ignore the offers that seem to be too good to be real. If someone you meet online promises to give you free in-game currency but also asks you to click on a link or visit an outside website to get it? Ignore that offer.

    2. Do not click on links of websites you don’t know: If someone asks you to visit a specific website to gain access to free in-game diamonds, don’t do it. Visiting such links can fill your device with malware.

    3. Do not share your financial information: Never share your financial details with anyone. If someone asks you for the log-in credentials to your game account, avoid giving it. The person can gain access to your credit card or other financial information.
