Why scam sites still operate?
May 8, 2012 3:43am CST
We are familiar with scam sites and we often heard new or old sites that became scam. But I don't understand the reason behind why those scam sites still operates for a long period of time? For sure they got lots of complaints from their members and reported them to the authority. do you have any idea where to report those scam sites? Is there no law for such cruel thing? your views please.

Yes. I am very familiar with these too good to be true promises. You have a very good idea that we need to report them so that they'll stop their operation. Here's the link that I found: http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/reporting.php The only problem here is as we try to stop them, other scammers try to create new scam sites. They're like mushrooms popping up everywhere.

Yes we all need to report those scam sites. If we cannot stop them at least we can warn other people about it. Good thing you shared the link. But can all sites fro different countries be reported to the link you provided? If they create new sites, at least we are more aware of their tactics now. And if all people will join together to report them their business for sure won't last long.

hi, I know many people are also a victim of scam. I am not scammed yet with big money involved but I am concerned to other innocent people who do not know how to recognize if the site is legit or scam. I worry for them. A law must be made to stop all these. But with the comments I received in this discussion, I think it made me understand more why there is no law for it in other countries and why it is so hard to recognize a site if they intend to stay as legit or not.

I don't know where do you report them. But I do know that in certain countries they are law against scam sites but in other certain countries they don't. So if you eliminate as much scam sites as possible. New ones from countries without such laws will appear to replace the old ones. So apparently they are hard to get rid off.
