Internet Fraud Information

These pages provide useful information on a number of types of fraud that are prevalent over the internet. Internet fraud is widespread, and is growing fast. Make sure you know what’s going on out there, and make sure you don’t fall victim to it yourself.

Classified Advertisement Scams

Scams related to classified advertisements are becoming increasingly more common nowadays. Although these scams differ from the 419 scams that this website concentrates on, they are becoming so widespread that it is worth describing how they work, to try and prevent people from falling victim to them.


Investment Scams

Advance fee fraud isn’t confined to West Africans sending out thousands of emails offering you the business opportunity of a lifetime; although this form of advance fee fraud is still widespread, scammers are finding new and ingenious ways to con people out of their hard earned money. One way in which they are now doing this is by responding to appeals for people to invest in new business ideas.


Job Vacancies in the Scamming Business

There has been a recent rash of spam emails offering what at first glance seem to be attractive job offers. Gilbert was lucky enough to receive such a job offer himself recently, and decided to apply.
