Scam Detector Warns of Fraud
The bad guys are out there, so how do you avoid being scammed? Check Scam Detector (scam-detector.com), which details, updates and adds scams in various categories, including travel, financial, social networking, auto and online auctions. Scam Detector also has free apps for mobile devices. A sample travel scam: In Malaysia someone might put a cell phone in your pocket or bag. It rings, you take it out and someone accuses you of stealing it. Most local police are familiar with the scam, but they may actually extort money from you to let you go. Sigh. You just can’t be too paranoid.
