Protect yourself from five common CashApp scams


The company says that “Cash Support will never ask you to provide your sign-in code, PIN, require you to send a payment, make a purchase, or ask you to do a transaction.”

  • Cash-Flipping

Scammers often claim they have a way to make you money. The con artist will try to convince you that they can “flip” your money. They try and get you to send them money by promising that they will send you back an increased amount of money.

The funds you send them are often called a “clearance fee.” These scammers will happily accept your money and they will never return anything back.

Keep in mind that CashApp will never request funds to claim payments or promise you a profit for a fee of any kind.

  • Puppy/Pet Deposit Scam

Some scammers pose as dog or pet breeders. They usually claim to have an upcoming litter of puppies and request a deposit. They typically post fake photos, don’t want to have phone communications, and offer to sell animals that are rare or purebred, for very low prices.
