While it would require stronger implementation of Internet law to curb this, it would help us all to be careful on our part not to blunder into any such fraud.

On the internet, you can find many people promising you lucrative business opportunities through easy-terms home businesses which will let you “sleep while your money works for you” or some such thing. Don’t be fooled by such promises that sound too good to be true.

Keep in mind that whenever you are offered something that is too good to be true, there is always a hidden clause. Don’t let even testimonials, ‘documented’ proof or guarantees fool you. These are standard trick in the con-artist’s trade, and there are enough websites on the Internet that will tell you more about them.

Another kind of Internet scams for which a lot of people have fallen for is the email scam, where an anonymous person will ask you to divulge account details so he may safely transfer to you some large amount of money for safe-keeping. And while they do sound like fishy proposals, the numbers of people who actually fall for it are surprising.
