Widely spread online fraud schemes
Internet gives us many opportunities. One may live a full-fledged life online, shopping for goods, playing games, communicating via social networks and of course working online as well. Nevertheless, one has to be aware of SCAMs online and be able to avoid them. There are not so much fewer SCAM schemes than means of earning online themselves! If you follow certain rules, it won't be that much of a deal to avoid fraud. You dont's have to be the guru of fraud schemes to avoid them. Knowing general foundations of the cheaters is enough to start feeling safe. On these three pages of our web-resource we will try to tell you about the most popular SCAMs that really work because of the fools of our world. So, let's go.
1. Magic Wallets.
The victim finds out via e-mail, icq spam or some other way about the existence of some "super e-wallet" that pays you back a few times more money after you send your money there. Usually it's twice more money. This SCAM has two endings after you make a payment. The first one - you never get anything back. The second one - the money really are paid back as a teaser in order to make the person pay much more again. After that the money are lost forever. People who this "magic wallets" belong to are fond of making up different stories so they convince you to pay. Sometimes one says he is a fired employee of a large company and now he tells you the way to steal the money from the company to have revenge.
Some crook do the "monitoring" of honestly paying "magic wallets" which is a total absurdity. Any such a wallet is a SCAM and its aim is to steal your money offering you easy enrichment. Take care and do not let the crooks to fool you!
Fishing does not only mean the activity of catching fish. It also means the activity of catching too trustful simpleton and steal their money. "Fishermen" send you an e-mail telling that your bank account or whatever has been frozen due to the emergency with their server or other equipment, office relocation and so on. Sometimes they say they have lost your password which sounds rather funny for experienced people like me. Such a situation simply cannot occur. Even if it does, the issue will be solved more secure. Whatever the reason of your password lose is, the letter requires you to fill your password in the blank or visit the web-resource that looks alike the official site of your bank or so and "activate" your account. The truth is that web-site belongs to the thieves who want to find out your real password and steal the money from you. Bank's or other company's employees never ask for your password or any other confident data. When visiting a web-site make sure it's domain name is exactly the same as it should be. If not, this is 100% SCAM!
3. Remote Work (simple and well-paid work from home).
By some reasons you see a web-site that offers a well-paid remote job, e.g. typing. There is much information on the site including the employer's phone number and other contacts. Financial independence and stability, free schedule and other social benefits are guaranteed. You are ready to start making millions of dollars for typing the text....and then you find out you have to send a sum of money to confirm you are a real person and you do wish to apply for the job. They say the money will be paid back to you as soon as you get the job! This is all spam and scam. You will get neither the job nor the money return.
4. Lottery win.
Suddenly you get a pleasant e-mail with....congratulations! You are told to be the winner of some lottery or a contest (taking into account that you have not taken part in any of those recently). Bullshit! So...in order to get your "prize" you have to either open the application coming with the e-mail ( and get a virus on your computer) or you have to send some money to the given account so you confirm it's you, the winner! Swindlers may introduce themselves as the representatives of a real company or organization. As a rule, you may check the contacts given and you'll find out they are not real. Such a SCAM is fools-oriented. People are so happy to hear they have won $100,000 that they do not even question how they could win if they did not even take part in the raffle.
5. Profitable exchange.
It all begins with the post on some web-site telling there're special e-money exchange web-sites. The article says when you exchange one currency for another and then back (e.g. USD=>EUR=>USD) you gain profit. It's no wonder there is a link to the "super currency exchange" service next to the post. F.Y.I.: e-currency exchangers are commercial web-sites and none of them would ever work that way. On the contrary, you loose some % on each exchange as the comission of the service. The "magic" exchanger is not like the normal ones. It's much worse! The author of the article about such an earning is the owner of this SCAM. During the exchange you would be charged with USD but EUR would never come back instead of the exchanged currency. The first signals the exchanger is a SCAM are not working contacts on the site and the inability to exchange all other currencies but for those that you can "make money on".
