Nearly everyone knows someone that has been scammed. There are many forms that a scam can take and many are quite convincing. With some actually having a 70% success rate. This blog post is going to shed light on some of the most common scams that involve the internet.
1.The Nigerian (or some other country) email scam,
This scam has been around for years, and yet people fall for this scam all the time. The scam starts with an email sent from someone overseas that would like to give you some large amount of money. Once you respond they will tell you that in order for them to send you a fortune, they will need some money to cover expenses. They will then ask you to wire them a sum of money. This will continue, and they will keep asking for more and more money. Obviously, you are never going to get a large amount of money from them, and you just lost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. There are many different forms this scam takes, but they are all fake. If someone from another country contacts you, it probably is a scam, and you should delete the email. People do not just give you money. If it is to good to be true…it probably is.
