The Truth About Avoiding Scams by Steve Weisman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Scams have always, and will always be around. Except now, technology makes scammers' jobs even easier, ensuring they can take advantage of more people than ever before. No matter how smart you think you are, you can easily become a victim: in fact, scammers have discovered that educated, sophisticated individuals are among their best targets. The Truth About Avoiding Scams arms you with everything you need to protect yourself: real, up-to-the-minute knowledge, and the "internal sensors" you need to sniff out even the subtlest, most well-crafted scams. Consumer finance expert Steven Weisman offers quick, bite-size facts and information about every type of fraud; from identity scams to computer-based fraud, travel and health scams to phony educational loans and scholarships. You'll find up-to-the-minute guidance on avoiding illegitimate online dating services; "cramming" and other phone frauds; tax and Social Security scams; employment, home repair, and investment scams; and a whole lot more. Unlike some books on scams, this one's simple to read, simple to use, up to date, and complete: the only guide you need to keep yourself safe.
