A scam is a scheme designed to con you out of your cash. There’s a scam out there for everyone. If you
let down your guard and think that you won’t be fooled, then you too could become a victim.
Scammers are becoming more sophisticated and aim to con us all. Bogus sweepstakes and lotteries, get-rich quick schemes and fake health cures are some of the favoured means of separating the unwary from their money.
But the number of scams just keeps on growing. If you think you have been the victim of a scam,
or suspect a scam, see the back page for what to do. No matter how small the amount of money
you have lost. It is important that the scamsters are stopped.
