Scams!!

Beware of the Scam - Scams do not come with warning signs or blink with flashing lights saying "enter at your own risk" Scams appear to be something real and grab the most vulnerable of passersby .. Recognizing the signs of a scam is really a task; but, one good rule of thumb is "if it's too good to be true; it's not"

What is your reaction and response to having been "taken" by a scam? What do you do about it when you find out you have been scamed or a site you have put a lot of time and effort into is really just a fraud? I always seem to fall into these types of sites. I wish there was a certain tool bar that would cry out "scam" when I got to a site that was one .. What about you??

I have fallen for scams but nothing bad came out of it as I did not lose any money or anything. I probably started receiving junk email but I always delete those. I am just a little more careful about what websites to join. I check sites out carefully before joining them. There are tons of scams out there and a variety of different one. Doing research before you sign up is a good idea.

I have been fallen into a scam actually, I had joiend a forum which it told member it is a paid forum, but it suddenly folded up and no one got the payment finally, although they say the site will be opened again ,I do not think they will though. I think I cannot blame anyone as no on asked me to join the site ,even if i was referred by someone, I will not blame the referrer as he/she did not know it is a scam, we have to take risk in online earning, nothing is guarantee.
