I agree with Vilma. It has become very difficult to differentiate between right and wrong. The scammers present the information in such a way that it looks 100% genuine… I like reading about different ongoing scams on the internet. It keeps me aware about the latest scams and frauds…

Thanks a lot iyogi for spreading the awareness about the various types of scams prevalent over the Internet. There are so many types of scams running over the web world that now even a genuine mail looks like a mail from scamsters. The only thing that differentiates a genuine mail from the scam mail is the money factor. Wherever the sender asks for money, consider it as a scam's work and delete it straightforward. Doing this you will never fall in the trap of such scamsters.
