Introduction to Internet Scams and Frauds With the Internet becoming such an integral part of all our lives, is it a surprise that we are more vulnerable to Internet scams and Internet fraud. So for all those people who want to know about the different ways in which a person can get scammed through Internet scams and Internet fraud, here is a complete information dossier telling you all about identity thefts, credit card thefts, Internet fraud and Internet scams. Along with this, you are going to know more about how fraudsters can gain access to your bank account, thanks to emails which you demand information from you under the garb of updating your banking details and information.
Ignorance is not bliss. In such cases you have to be one step ahead of all the scamsters who benefit from a credulous public who believe that if banking and financial company officials have written to you about a serious matter, it is serious. They thrive on such threatening and scare tactics, telling you that your account is going to be limited within three days or some such ultimatum. Remember that no bank or any other institution which has anything to do with money is going to ask you for your details, by asking you to update them online. Anybody with a little bit of common sense knows that any information which is sent online either through mail or through tapping on supposedly secure websites can be easily accessed by any hacker with a little bit of experience and computer know how. So apart from showing you ways and means with which you can check these Internet scamsters and credit card identity thieves, this book is going to give you information on how you can protect yourself from future financial losses.

Difference between Internet scams And Internet Fraud
Internet scams can be you telling the details of your credit card or your identity to companies who demanded this information from you, because they need that information to see whether you are of age or any other excuse. Internet fraud is much more of the same thing, but on a larger level with transactions through companies sending money through wire transfers to other companies abroad. These companies do not exist.

Tips and Techniques to Recognize Frauds and Scams
Rule number one – giving personal information out.
Common sense is not so common, but you should have some survival instinct working, especially when somebody is demanding to know your name, address, phone number, and other important information, because they need it. No legitimate business needs this information from you, especially over the Internet. Also, anybody asking for your credit card details, unless of course it is eBay or any other such site should also be considered to be a pukka SCAM. It is better to be safe than to be sorry. Once you lose your money, you are never going to get it back. Somebody is going to be making his own bungalow in some South American country through money stolen from you. So remember any site page on the Internet which asks you to give your personal details, especially password, name, address, phone number, and bank account number is a scamster.

Rule number two – identification documents.
In fact, any company out there has absolutely no right to ask you for identification documents, including your passport details to prove you are who you are. While I was working for Odesk they told me to verify my identity for their files. They wanted my passport details. I kicked up a fuss. They had absolutely no right to ask me my passport details, or my national identity card details or my income tax number details, or even my bank account proof details. And I received a letter from them saying that a technical fault had caused a sending of mail requiring proof to all their clients/customers/contractors. My account was immediately reopened again. They had suspended it, thanks to their technical blooper. But how many of the clients in Asia, and the Middle East and in other parts of the world sent their passport details to Odesk in order to prove their identity? One may trust Odesk, to keep that information confidential but one definitely should not trust the medium by which you send those documents – a Hotmail or a Google mail or a yahoo mail server. This is one of the easiest things to hack online, and any teenage geek with a little bit of slick techno- know how can get access to millions of email addresses with a couple of clicks of his fingers on his mouse. These email addresses can be dispersed all over the world to be used by fraudsters. As for your documents, they can be accessed by anybody – read government or nongovernment agency, i.e. Microsoft, anywhere in the world and tabulated in the dossier are being built against you, by some nosy Parker, who has nothing else to do! Talk about big Brother paranoia, but one does feel this way, especially when there is absolutely no safety on the Internet, and no recourse to any sort of identity Theft and credit card theft.

But basically we have to me more careful about how we share our informations online.
And I strongly believe that with this little information, you might be able to determine with one is scan and fraud
