Review

NORTH AMERICAN SCAM ALERT: SCAMS & FRAUDS TO AVIOD Video Librarian Recommends 3 1/2 stars (out of 4) 2007 Issue The e-mail may start something like: Dearest Sir: I am a widow in Lagos, Nigeria and am unable to access my late husband s sub- stantial bank account. The pop-up on your monitor tells you that You ve just won a new iPod! The letter informs you that ... you are the First Place Winner in the Freedonia National Sweepstakes! The means may have become more sophisticated in our electronic age, but the same end goal remains the same: to separate you from your money. A filmed seminar presentation (with the ubiquitous over head projector) , NORTH AMERICAN SCAM ALERT-a Canadian production that is just as relevant to U.S. audiences-looks at a wide range of current fraud and consumer deception schemes, including identity theft, internet fraud, resort and vacation promotions, foreign lotteries, bogus charities, work-at-home schemes, car ads, advance fee loans, unsolicited invoices, fake credit card charges, and yes the infamous Nigerian e-mail scam. Although technically simple, the information presented here could be of great value to anyone curious about those too good to be true offers. Highly recommended. Aud: P (J Carlson) --Video Librarian - Review Magazine for Libraries

North American Scam Alert DVD Volume #2 Video Librarian 3 Stars Recommended Sept./Oct. 2008 Issue Hosted by consumer advocates from the Better Business Bureau of Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada, this sequel to North American Scam Alert (VL-1/07) covers more of the latest scams aimed at consumers and businesses in North America. Social networks such as MySpace and Facebook are not just places for stalkers, but have also become a fertile ground for I.D. thieves to harvest personal information (some kids have posted their bank pin numbers in order to loan a friend a few bucks to see a movie, and were later surprised to find their banks accounts compromised). Debit and credit card skimming is another threat, with crooks using rigged card readers to capture information. Other frauds covered here include unscrupulous home movers, false health products, green washing (misrepresenting a product or service as eco- friendly), condo sales, and work-at-home scams (one involving reviewing movies!). In each of these cases, viewers are offered tips for self-defense against the profiled fraudsters. A helpful how-to that is sure to be of interest in an age of increasing electronic and online crime, this is recommended. Aud: P. (C. Block) --Video Librarian - Review Magazine for Libraries
