ones that promise a job and want money from you. The ones that try to get personal information so they can steal from you. That way those of us that want a real job wouldn't have to search through millions of rip-off jobs to find real ones. Cyber cops that could block their sites, chase down where they originate from, and fine them. The fines could go to pay for the Cyber cops. I know, probably not possible, but it would be nice. What do you think?

There are various online organizations which you can report sites to which violate rules, are illegal or steal information. The trouble is that with sites being hosted all around the world actually getting them closed down or having some sort of warning on is nearly impossible. What would be nice is if there was some major central database of sites which are known offenders and which you could use to double check before using a site.

The closest to all that is probably the Better Business Bureau. They keep track of complaints against businesses. Thanks and take care.

If nothing else, I'd like to see a warning label! That goes for sample products which end up charging $50 or $60 or more, when all you requested was a free sample!

Yeah, commercials on TV, if they say free sample, don't call. They will try to talk you into buying more. Thanks and take care.
