When you receive a screenshot that says, "Cash App payment pending," don't panic. Many people are in a rush, so they don't take note of suspicious transactions. But you can spot these scams by following a few tips.

The first step is to check your profile. The profile shows the history of activities on your account, including the check-in section.

Second, check the screenshot's authenticity. A fake Cash App balance screenshot could be created with manipulated profile images or reflections.

Also, it may not match your previous transaction history. It may be shared via social media without your knowledge. If you're still unsure, contact Cash App customer support, and they'll help you figure out the scam.

A fake Cash App screenshot sent by a scammer will say that your payment is pending. They'll also ask you to pay a fee to clear it. The fee can range from $50 to $500. It's essential to keep your cash app's payment information safe. Don't be duped into paying a fee you didn't authorise.

Another way to identify a fake screenshot is to use free tools online. Some of these tools will even have an authentication system built in. You can also check your bank statement for verification purposes.
