One of my close friends has seemingly become the intended victim of an internet based scam, and it has been brought to my attention that there are
many, many similar fraudulant activities going on all around us on and off the web.
The purpose of this thread will be to highlight as many instances as possible of electronic muggers so that the slightly more niaeve individuals such
as my dear friend can realise instantly and keep thier money safe.
If you would like to address the theory on the whole, or the effects, or even suggest a remedy or detterent for these computer criminals, please also
feel free to do so.
If you yourself have been taken for a ride please, please document your experiences here, no matter how daft it sounds, as I am positive one of the
best ways to stop the problem is to bring awareness to it.
