Internet Scams Are Getting More Sophisticated & More Devious Every Day - Find Out What You Need to Know to Protect Your Money … Your Identity … Your Children!
From: Greg Andrews - Scam detection expert..
Money lost to Internet scams hit a new high last year, topping $240 million, according to the U.S. Government. People young and old, rich and poor, are falling victim to Internet scams.
The problem has gotten so bad that statistics say you probably now know someone who has been scammed.
It’s no longer enough just to be “smart,” Internet scams have gotten so devious that even the most knowledgeable and cautious Internet users are losing money.
I should know – I’m now one of the “victims.” Last year, I lost $570 to an Internet scam. Talk about being embarrassed … and mad.
Here I am a person who makes his living online and who considers himself to be very smart and cautious and I got taken in!
After I realized what had happened I couldn’t believe it had happened to me. I always considered myself way too smart to ever fall for a scam. But experts say that’s exactly how most people feel. We think “Oh, I’m too smart to fall for an Internet scam. Those scams happen to other people who are not as cautious as me or who maybe aren’t as smart as me.”
But the truth is these days anybody can get scammed.
The scams are so persuasive, the offers seem so legitimate, that we think it couldn’t possibly be a scam … and then the next thing you know we’ve lost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Or even worse, we’ve had our identity stolen and in no time our credit cards contain thousands of dollars in extra charges.
And If Adults Are Getting Scammed so Often
Now, What About Children?
If you have kids you should be worried, Internet scammers have no conscious and more and more are going after our kids because they are such easy “marks.”
The Internet has become a dangerous place … a place where we must arm ourselves with knowledge to protect ourselves. Just consider these recent scams:
Elnetta, a 70-year-old grandmother, lost $400 when she made a donation to a fake charity … a fake charity that had a professional, legitimate website that was filled with tear-jerking stories of people the charity claimed to help.
Dominic, a 28-year-old accountant, lost $200 when he made a donation to what he thought was a charity helping victims of the recent Interstate 35 bridge collapse in Minnesota but instead was a scammer who quickly took the money and ran.
Tom, a hard-working 42-year-old teacher, lost $320 when he bought a How to Make Money on the Internet multi-media course that never arrived. When he tried to check on delivery of the product he was told the company no longer existed.
Stacie’s 15-year-old son, Michael, lost his entire savings of $180 when he fell for a scam online offering an iPhone at a knock-down price.
Angie, a 37-year-old mom, had her identity stolen when her daughter gave away personal information about her mom when she thought she was entering a legitimate contest to win front row tickets to a Justin Bieber concert
23-year-old Mark, a coffee barista, and thousands of others lost $25 each when they thought they were purchasing a legitimate movie dvd but instead received one that had been illegally filmed from the back of a theater with a shaky, handheld camera.
John, an aspiring 25-year-old entrepreneur, was able to get a $300 camera for $100 from Asia. He thought he was being 'smart', so he purchased a single sample camera, which really turned out to be a $300 camera. He then went ahead and purchased another 50 for $5,000, hoping to resell them (dropship), only to find out that he received fake cameras worth less than $25 each.
Still think it couldn’t happen to you?
Well, remember that’s what I thought, too!
How I Lost $570 …
When my apartment lease was set to run out last October, I began to look for a new place to live. One day, while searching the Internet I found the perfect place – a beautiful apartment in a great neighborhood for a really good price.
After talking with the landlord, who seemed like a really nice guy, I wired my deposit to the owner’s offshore account and was all set to move in when I discovered the person I talked to didn’t own the property at all.
Scammers are finding legitimate properties online, stealing the description and the photos and then posting their own ads on real estate sites and on other sites like Craigslist. They usually ask for a few hundred dollars less than the actual property and when people drive by the location, which I did, they see a for sale sign.
I never thought it could happen to me … but it did. I lost $570. I still remember the sick feeling I got in my stomach when I realized I had been scammed.
You feel so stupid, so embarrassed. I lost money I couldn’t afford to lose. I had to go home, tell my dad what had happened and ask for a loan so that I could afford to rent another apartment. Talk about being at a low point in your life. I felt like a complete loser.

Why Do So Many People Fall Victim to Scams
… & Why Are You at Risk, Too?
Research recently done at the University of Exeter in the UK sheds some valuable insight into why consumers fall victim to scams, as well as the psychological techniques used by scammers to con global consumers out of hundreds of millions and possibly even billions of dollars each year.
Among the researchers key findings were:
A good background knowledge of a scam’s subject, such as experience with investing, may actually increase your risk of being scammed due to “over-confidence”
Up to 20% of the population could be particularly vulnerable to scams due to their “make-up” or, in other words, the way they are “wired”
Previous victims of a scam are even more likely to fall for another scam
Scam victims often keep what
happened to them quiet and avoid speaking about it with family or
The research also found that what makes many scams even more devious is that they use a range of highly persuasive techniques.
One common tactic is to seek to exploit basic human emotions such as excitement or fear to provoke a spontaneous ‘gut reaction’ to the scam’s offer.
Scams may also seek to tap into people’s trust of authority by making their offer look like a legitimate offer from a reputable business or official institution.
