someone called my nana a while back pretending that one of us was in jail and needed bail money, thank goodness she called me before acting (with 5 of us its easy to lose track)
I told her a simple facebook comment of tagging our names and telling us to check in works well. All of my brothers and cousins will answer it the moment they see it.

that's an awful scam to take advantage of someone who would be very worried and presumably help the person out. glad she has a good way to check in with everyone!

It gets tiresome going on almost any site and be redirected to a website that tries to scam you. Also ads can get very annoying depending on your screen they almost fill up the entire page.

You really need to be careful when you are doing anything lately. There are a ton of scams out there and sometimes they are hard to spot.

There are so many scams out there online and offline. Sometimes you don't know what and who to trust anymore.

The word itself is really not good to read. Scams is everywhere even online sites you can find it and that is really bad experience to have in my entire life.

Oh i just tired of some scam sites which grabbed my earning without any legal reason, those scam sites only made for cheat common people or users

I just received the latest FB scam by a hacker claiming to be my friend I knew something wasn't kosher about it and this is what is says So you haven't heard about the 2015 empowerment program in conjunction with Facebook Active user Compensation bonus?

It's not easy to contact FB to report this I don't know what else to do these people shouldn't get away with this they need to be prosecuted

There is an address to forward those fake FBI emails to. I don't remember it but I googled it one time and forwarded bunches of those bogus emails to the FBI.You could probably find the address if you tried. I got tired of sending them.

I recently heard about this IRS scam going on. They would call people claiming to be the IRS and saying you owed so much in taxes. If you didn't pay it they would come arrest you. Such ****

I got that phone call Dave! I soo didnt believe the guy. He had such a heavy accent i couldnt understand half he was saying. I told him to take me off the list.

Scams are time consuming and quite frankly, I think people should get compensated just for researching whether online/offline stuffs are a scam or not.

I hate scams. They are every where and no matter what you do you still come across finding scams. Some even post them on Facebook.

i hate scams last year i wasted a whole 3 months working online for a scam site just to realise it was a scam when it was my time to be paid but now i am wiser i first do research before joining a online working site.

The dating site scams are the saddest I think. Vulnerable people tricked into sending scammers thousands of dollars because they think they are helping someone that they think loves them.

I received that scam from that Indian. So I played along as it was funny. He kept on telling me that I didn't have an appointment, that it was not time to leave for the appointment. He even called back at 6:00. Well my husband is funny and likes to joke around with them. I just hope nobody did get scammed by that Indian or any other telemarketer.

I am so annoyed with the phone call scams. The one with the indian guy calling from Microsoft or Symantec is the most annoying. His 'job' is so deceitful. How can anyone from their call center think that's an honest day of work?

I agree, they are very annoying and I try to avoid them as much as possible. However, I don't think it matters to them if it is honest or not. It's probably the only job they could get to feed their families. I know I wouldn't do that job by choice.

some will call you and cut the call in a few minutes that you may call them just to call them back all your money in the line is gone others will convince you to enter a certain code through your phone unknowingly you find yourself you subscribed to their text messages that they will send you at a very high cost

why can't people just get a life instead of trying to scam others. What is it that they don't go out and do some real hard work instead of stealing from the people who do. Get a life. So frustrating.

We see scams all the time now on the internet and in our emails. They have become more of a rash these days. And we still see some coming in the regular snail mail. I hate them and always avoid them.

I hate scams. Why on earth anyone would wanna scam somebody is beyond me. Be honest with yourself, do honest work and be considerate of other people.

I honestly don't use that much of sites on internet because I am always afraid of it being a scam so I rather not give it a try lol

"Hello sir I am a ugandan prince and I want to give you $2.500,000 to transfer into my other account. I will give you $500,000 upfront if you help me. Thankyou"
How does / Has that scam ever worked ahahaha

There are a lot of people that falls for these things because they really believe about this kind of things and they want really want money.

There are so many scam sites out there anymore. It's annoying to spend hours of your time to earn money only to realize you won't ever get paid. It makes me wonder if they were set up to be scams, or if they just went downhill.

sure there are many Scam sites on internet nowadays others will even lie to you to upgrade your membership by money value so as to be paid your work easily.
