I found the book Scam-Proof Your Life to be very thorough in covering all catagories noted in the Table of Contents.I especially liked the "go-to" sources for filing complaints. I found, however, that the inserted information in each catagory interrupted the flow of the commentary and disturbed my "train of thought". Overall, there is a wealth of useful information in this book.
There is no fool proof way to keep from being suckered, but this book really covers a lot of scams that have been in play for a long time. If you study it and learn from it you can head off most scams and keep more of your money. I would highly recommend it and I also purchased one for my Mom.
Before reading this book, I felt vulnerable. After reading the book, I understand the concepts and the tasks required to protect myself. I love the idea of using a cell phone as an emergency phone to call 911, even if the phone is not in service. Effective and affordable ideas!
