This is the most comprehensive list available on the web on how to avoid getting scammed. The list covers credit card fraud, callback fraud, tax, dating, wire fraud, and others. Get ahead of the scammers so you can recognize it before it happens.
I was recently telling a relative about what is known as a BEC scam. As I explained how the scam works, she just kept nodding her head as if she was familiar with it. When I was done, she revealed that she had almost been taken in by exactly such a scam. And this woman is highly intelligent and educated. It occurred to me that there simply is not enough education out there to help individuals avoid scams. For this reason, I put together the most comprehensive list of fraud prevention tips anywhere on the web. So you and your loved ones can avoid getting scammed.
I also made a point of sourcing all the tips, mostly from highly trusted places so you know it is reliable, and so you can do further research yourself should you choose to.
