I am sure many of you have been scammed by all kinds of juicy offers to earn a lot of money on the internet. But would you be able to tell if someone is lying to you when you are chatting with him/her on the internet? It would be easier if you were talking in person as body language would be a great indicator whether he/she is lying or not. Give me some tips please if you can. Thanks.

There is no way. Jokingly speaking, we have to have horoscope of each of themember and test their statements through that.

You have to assume that there could be one rotten apple in an apple tree and believe most of them or all of them.

I have come acrross to know that scientists are working on e-paper which will just like e-mail (electronic mail). Like e-paper they are also working on a new technology in which you"ll touch your computer monitor made up of glass or LCD and you"ll feel touch from the person you are chatting with. Like this they must work on e-lie detecting. Same concept and you"ll know the person you are chatting with or the site you are visiting is lieing or telling the truth. I hope this technology comes soon. It sure will change the face of modern Internet as it is used nowadays.

Its a real pity people need to lie in the first place. But that technology, once it becomes a reality will hopefully cut down the occurences of scams on the internet. Thank you!
