If something sounds too good...

I found this book at Wordzone. It is a simple book and only cost $5. But this book tells you almost everything you needed to know about how to stop from being duped out of your hard-earned money. The only thing this book does not tell you is when you retire from the government and armed with your newly released gratuity - you get duped by a sweet talking lady who very quickly wanted to get married to you in her home country.

Just like what the book says. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Everyone dreams of easy money or getting rich the quick and easy way. So how do you protect yourself? Through this book, you will learn the secrets of confidence tricksters from almost everywhere in the world. The book is essentially a reference book on the dark and dastardly gamres men and women around the world to convince you to part with your hard earned money.

I only know of a few before I read this book. But now I know everything there is to know about advance fee sweepstakes fund; affinity fraud investigation scam; bank examiner scam; bogus franchise opportunities; chain letters; commercial real estate scams - front loadaing end; commodities/futures/options investment frauds; credit card scams; deceptive time share; door to door scams; dot com scams; foreign lottery ticket sale scams; fraudulent advance fee loan brokers; fraudulent magazine subscription sales; fraudulent puzzles for prizes sweepstakes scam; fraudulent telefunding for charitable donations; gemstones fraudulent investment schemes; home improvement scams; home renovation fund; Nigerian scam; pigeon drop scam; ponzi drop; pyramid scheme; recovery operations fund; residential scams; sweepstakes fraud; thsi deal won't fly; travel scams and finally work-at-home scams.

Get the book. It's worth more than the $5 you paid for the book.

If I may add, one of the very first questions we should ask representatives of such companies before even thinking of investing in any scheme is how credible is their Board of Directors and who is fully in control of finances..

Also worth analysing their audited quarterly financial reports (if any -- most scams nada! Zilch!) before hopping onto their 'get-rich quick' bandwagons of fool's gold.

A similar MLM or 'pyramid-scheme' firm based in S'pore (whose assets are being frozen now) had only the Founder/CEO as sole signatory to all company cheques when at least two directors should have been assigned to sign checking account.

I feel sorry for 'duped' Bruneian depositors but better withdraw all investments before it's too late!
