FAKE OFFER – MILLIONS OF DOLLARS
Direct deposit to your account (cause you look like a nice guy). Bank clerks or people running from countries with new governments, all needing to deposit millions of dollars in a “secure account” somewhere – suddenly decide you are the best, most trusted person they can find and they are ready to share huge amounts of the millions with you – just give them your account info and they'll do all the rest – (YOU BET THEY WILL) –
These guys will clean out your bank account in a heart beat.
That email from DR. ABEBON TRINICAN in Nigeria – asking you to let him deposit 12,500,000 dollars into your bank account is one of the biggest scams on the Internet.
Asking for assistance with a “financial matter” - 12 and half million is not coming to your bank, but everything you have will quickly disappear from your account.
Free stuff rules – but it is never really free.
FREE OR REAL CHEAP PRICES – ON LATEST COMPUTERS & SOFTWARE
Look at these email ads:
FREE HP NOTEBOOK!
$35 – for Adobe Premiere!
$25 for Windows Vista!
$200 for latest Sony Laptop!
Why not reply? It's free or real cheap. You are thinking, “What is there to loose?”
Whatever you give them – you gave them.
It was all a fraud. There is no such thing as “Trial Beta Versions” of these very expensive software. And why would any large company just send out a FREE computer to you by email?
What is the catch?
One – they tell you it is FREE, but of course you need to pay the shipping, handling and setup charges (in advance) and they get your money and you get “FREE” (meaning – “nothing”).
Or – they quote unbelievable low prices on expensive software, you give them the money and (same thing – you get “nothing”).
OFFICIAL BANK REQUEST
Bank asking for information – not financial institution or any other company will ever ask you for passwords or verification of account information.
This is a trick called “Phishing”
Passwords are TOP SECRET
YOUR “FRIEND HAS BEEN ROBBED” AND NEEDS MONEY IMMEDIATELY
This scam appears to be coming from someone you know, or someone well known in your community. They claim to be traveling and have been robbed or lost all their money and identification. They say they are in desperate need of your help and they are going to pay you for getting some money to them right away. They are traveling and just had their money and identification stolen. They are stranded and need money to have some food, pay their hotel bill and travel back home. As soon as they get back home. Naturally, they will send you back all the money (maybe even with a nice bonus for being so kind).
Sound to good to be true? (It is a big fat lie)
There is no way for you to check it out. They say they don't have a phone. They are using the computer at the local library to send the email. Their identification is stolen. Their money is all gone, passport missing, no place to stay – hotel bill not paid, no luggage. And all you have to do is send 2,000 or 3,000 dollars by Western Union to someone who is going to claim it for them (remember they have no identification, so you are going to send it to some stranger). But of course, they will pay you back – with a bonus!
Yeah, sure they will – (NOT!)
This is a case of stolen identity for sure – but it wasn't the passport, driver's license or visas that were stolen – it was the email account that you are getting the email from. It is not “your friend” or well known person. It is a scammer – and he is using the names and emails in the stolen account to mail out to everyone.
What can you do?
YOU ARE A WINNER! (Not really)
Your email did not “WIN” the Irish or Canadian or South American Lottery!
Nobody wins lottery in email – especially since you know you didn't even enter any lottery.
Why would they send you email?
They want you to reply. Or you just click a link.
Either way – They got you!
The easiest password to crack is the word: PASSWORD
So many people think it is cute or funny to just use the word “password” or “pass” not realizing this is the very first word scammers will use to get their account.
Do not use short passwords or common words, like “word”. Do not use your name or names of family members. Do not your street or city name. Do not use the same name for the account as the password.
Experts suggest minimum eight (8) characters combing upper and lower case letters with numbers and punctuation marks:
5EcretPA55w0rd! <“secret password” with the exclamation mark, uses this combination, starting with the number “5” then a capital “E”, then letters: c,r,e,t; then the capital letters; P,A; then two “5”s, a lower case “w”, then the number zero “0”; the lower case letters; “r” and “d” and finally the exclamation mark (!”. Together, these will be difficult for a “hacker” to figure out, but easy for you to remember.
SOCIAL NETWORKING – NOT SECURE
Face Book? My Space? And Blogs are not the place for private pictures, phone numbers, personal background or credit or financial information – don't belong on the Internet.
NAKED - NUDE PHOTOS – BIG TRICK! - IT'S SPYWARE
“NUDE” – “NAKED” are two words even more popular than the word “SEX” on the Internet today.
Anytime you see these words in the subject line – Do not open! – DELETE, DELETE, DELETE!
And by the way, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton did NOT pose in naked photos – just for you!
This is one of the fastest ways to have everything on your computer “Open to the Public”.
MEETING NEW “FRIENDS” & SOCIALIZING ON THE WEB –
It all seems so simple and easy. After all, you are in the safety of your own home and no one on the Internet knows who you are and where you live – right?
Once you start sharing any information, even your email address, they do have information on you and they can easily get more.
Actually, you are the one who doesn't know who they are, where they are – and more important – what they are after.
This is one of the cases where taking your money would not be the worst thing that could happen. Too many cases have been reported of young and old alike being taken in by these con artists and their stories only to wind up on the front page as another statistic.
OK Here are the basic rules for the Internet (and life too):
Do not reply to emails from people or companies your don't know.
Do not click on the links from people or companies you don't know.
Even if you recognize the email address, but the email says strange things or asks you to do something out of the ordinary (like sending money), do not reply until you verify by phone or some other way.
FORGET FREE - There is nothing “Free” in this world, except air (take a deep breath before the government figures out how to tax that too).
If it sounds to good to be true – It probably is (not true).
The best security is – keep it off the Internet.
Secrets are not secrets after you tell even one person.
Here are some “Words of Wisdom” (from my dad):
“You can never beat a man at his own game.”
“Best way to keep a secret – Don't tell anyone”
“Don't share personal or private information”
“No such thing as a FREE Lunch”
“If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is”
And never, never, NEVER – give your information, or passwords to ANYONE – EVER!
And one more thing – you can't see or hear or know the person who is really sending you the email – so from now on – Only put your trust in the One who Sees and Hears and Knows everything, always – The Almighty.
(Pass it on – someone will really thank you)
