That is true my friends that there were so many pretenders and fakers in the internet. Some of them are even entering legitimate websites,when they find someone to become their next victim--An awesome introduction is given with all good incentives written just to make you believe they are true,so beware of these scammers.Some just appear into your email address and say you have won or inherit something big. Please do not bother to take them seriously.They are just a waste of your time and efforts.Just ignore them when you happen to read their foolishness.I wish they would be trap and be prosecuted by an international police so that they can not victimized anymore to innocent people.

Agreed. There are SO many fakes on the internet. I am not as worried about the the ones who are very obvious as the ones who seem sincere and real. But then, there are also a lot of fakes and pretenders in the brick and mortar world. I am watching America's Most Wanted now. It is getting harder and harder to protect oneself against all the predators in the world. The scam artists are getting better and better at what they do.

Yes!You are absolutely correct that they are getting more clever and more tricks as if they were really realistic yet I gauge and detected it immediately.I eventually ask why is it turn around between me and my friend.That's it he never ask my opinion again because he knows that I have sense his bad intentions.He never outsmarted me because I felt something wrong when the offer is given to me and still I accepted it hoping for the benefits I could get out of it.I just thank my conscience of feeling something wrong is about to happen.

Hi there... I'm sorry if you've had any bad experience. Yes, there are people all over the world who like to pretend and exploit decent people. Such mugs are know as thieves. And the type of scam you're talking about is Nigerian Scam or the 419 scam... Nigeria is a country where 90% of them are thieves. So this scam began from there and now, it is spread all over the world. Beware of it! Don't trust anyone on internet, ever....

You are correct guys that these people are unaware of the trouble they caused to their victims.They just do not care what could be the consequencies it also brought to their future becauase I believe that a certain curse could probably make them useless in a matter of seconds.I say these things due to the fact that their victims are suffering many losses yet they could also suffer more than what they have done to humanity.

@ ReallySunny... Buddy, there are laws against them, all right.. But what are the penalties.. Only a few months of imprisonment and a little fine... What does it matter to a thief, who doesn't have any honor or shame??? @ Berting.. I think, you have suffered a lot... I am sorry for you... The best way is to begin a campaign, as sunny suggested, an awareness campaign among decent guys against these thieves.. Take care my friend..

I dont understand why there are people who use the internet as an avenue for their selfish deeds, victimizing innocent users, some has websites. I guess the best way to not to victimize by these is not to accept offers with money involve esp those who ask to pay for a certain amount first. If you dont know the site or not sure about it, dont join. be cautious.

The most frequent scam use is money as the root of all evil.There are great offers of employment with free board and lodging,business ventures with juicy profits.So if you are unaware of these offers to be hoax only that you find yourself to be the perfect victim,so be aware and ready for the worst.

You will also find people on here, and on facebook and many other places who are fake and are pretenders. Maybe they do not offer you an inheritance, but sometimes they offer pretend friendships or bad advice. be wise and do not trust just anyone.

I will just hear what they say and just scale it if trusted or not.Most of it are just fakes.Anyway we can still sense in our inner emotions if the person we are dealing with says the truth or not.I will just deal with them with precautions so that I could never be fooled by another scammer once again.

Oh yes, there are pretty much a lot. With regards to those emails that would say you won the lottery or you received inheritance, those are just fishing/phishing for your information. They'd want you to reply with your name, contact details, even bank account.. So beware. I guess the best thing to do would be to ignore these emails and warn others about them. :) Hopefully those scammers would stop when we've all ignored them!

I am aware of those scammers that also enters my email address.I do not give any time reading those things but some of it is really very enticing to get into a try. I just stick right away to my friends who are sending their messages to me.Enjoy your day without any pretenders hounding against you. Cheers!!
