In this section I give warnings on scams and general nasties that are out to trap the unwary.

Read the OFT's leaflet:
Scambusters leaflet. (pdf 798 kb).

Here in the UK, if you suspect that what you are being offered is a scam,
see: Consumer Direct for clear, practical consumer advice
of call them on 08454 04 05 06 (local rates apply).

Here is a useful page about Your E-Mail Responsibility written by Duane Alan Hahn. It covers how to deal with emailing groups of people, forwarding e-mails and dealing with chain e-mails. Good, sensible advice.

Here is a good site with useful, practical and trustworthy information on identity theft, Internet scams, credit card fraud, phishing, lottery scams and more, plus how to stop spam: Scambusters.org scambusters.org logo (it's an American site but the scammers are world wide!). There tend to be a few "announcements" (adverts) before the actual articles, but they have to pay the bills somehow!
