Top 10 Scams Of 2006

Consumer Affairs has posted a top 10 list of scams for 2006. I’m sure most of us know about these scams but there are others who are not as web savvy as we are and it wouldn’t hurt to pass these along to them.

Scammers scored at will, generating instant cash using lottery and fake check scams. They capitalized on news events and pop culture to catch consumers off guard, and enlisted all kinds of emerging technology to perfect identity theft.

Here then, chosen from the roughly 50,000 consumer complaints we’ve processed in the past year, are the Top Ten Scams of 2006.

It’s hard to believe that people actually fall for these scams but they do.

    If scammer is a pro he will induce anyone in a game, even a lawyer, judge, police officer…. you name it….!!! (real hard-core scams are made off-line, internet is only a media channel, just like TV, radio or newspaper … only cheaper)

    He will induce you with free gifts, fast cars, free cruising trips, …. and then if you are a mark with several 100K to sever MM$US he will rip you off like a fish or what ever animal is used to get the skin off 🙁
