Scam Book

We have received many requests for a book that summarises the main scams as well as providing a list of 'Golden Rules' that would prevent you from becoming a victim of most scams.

So we got to work and have produced a book that includes most of what people have asked for.

Because scammers are constantly coming up with new scams, or new approaches to old scams, any book trying to include all scams would be out of date very quickly.

The key is following some golden rules that will avoid most scam.

The book provides these guidelines as well as tips and strategies to avoid scams. There are also several sections on how to bank securely online, common security risks, how to protect your computer online, how to remove a computer virus, how to deal with identity theft and reporting a scam and getting help.

A full list of all the topics in the book is provided on the website on the 'Scam Book' page:

At this stage the book is available in a PDF format as an electronic book [eBook] download. Depending on the demand, we may also produce a hard copy version.

Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

If you have been a victim of this type of scam or any other Cyber crime, you can report it to the IC3 website at: The IC3 complaint database links complaints for potential referral to the appropriate law enforcement agency for case consideration. Complaint information is also used to identity emerging trends and patterns.

Remember - always watch for scams!
