We all get emails telling us that we have won, inherited or has been chosen to receive huge sums of cash, but most of us see right through these scams and so the people behind them have had to become a bit smarter in order to separate you from your cash or identity.
In this graphic from the Better Business Bureau, we have some of the top scams from 2011 and most surprisingly are still going strong into 2012! The scams are more or less the same; it is just slightly different how they are applied in order to fool the consumer into replying.
Therefore, it is simple, that age old saying that is something appears to be too good to be true, then more than likely it is. Have a look at the graphic is see how some of these scammers work, because you never know, it could be you next in line!
