But the book goes far and beyond simply the dreaded identity theft. It also provides valuable insights into all manner of Internet, mail, and telephone scams and frauds: including, among others, fraudulent charities; area code scams (809, 284, & 876); check fraud; expired credit card scams; card not present scams; debt elimination and reverse mortgage scams; phishing; pharming; cheap medications from Canada; telemarketing scams; Medicare fraud; overpayment scams; and IRS related scams. And, in addition to identifying the scams, the author also explains how the "fraudsters" set them up; what the "lies" are that suck the victims in; what the scams actually are (in all their variations); what "key words" help identify them as a scams; and how you, the victim de jure, can protect yourself.
The insights and advice offered in this book are so valuable and specific that it should be read by every man and woman in the United States (US). For although many of these scams originate and are executed from outside the US, the US is generally the target of choice. It almost goes without saying that under certain unfortunate circumstances, this may very well be the most valuable book you could have at hand. I'd buy it, read it, and keep it handy if I were you.
The only difference between the old days and today is that there are much more complicated methods and systems available to scam you.Without doubt,the Internet has offered scammers opportunities they would not even have dreamed of in the past.Also,while government regulations and employees have expanded unimaginably ,you are more liable to get gyped today than ever before.
This book covers the many kinds of scams that exist and gives all kinds of suggestions on how to protect yourself;but the best protection you can have is to beware of anyone you deal with and as a starter assume those who approach you in any way where money is involved;is to assume they are dishonest;especially if they are unknown to you.
As a starter,never deal with anyone who comes a knocking at your door.Never deal with anyone on a phone trying to sell you something;and above all never deal with anyone who contacts you by e-mail---and that includes banks,financial institutions,travel agencies,real estate salesmen,or government organizations,etc.Read more ›
