General Scam Indicators

The current Internet scams listed earlier (types are listed in the column on the right) are some of the most common types of Internet fraud. However, these fraudsters are clever people who may use many variations of the above scams to achieve their nefarious ends.

In general, be wary of unsolicited emails that:

* Promise you money, jobs or prizes
* Ask for donations
* Propose lucrative business deals
* Ask you to provide sensitive personal information
* Ask you to follow a link to a website and log on to an account.

By taking the time to educate yourself about these common types of scam, and/or by sharing this information with others, you can make a valuable contribution to the war against Internet fraud.
