Losses Claimed By Online Fraud Hit $182 Million
According to Investor's Business Daily online fraud is still on the rise.  And unbelievably the Nigerian Scams still top the list for losses. 

In case you don't know what the Nigerian Scam is:
" In this scam, victims are guaranteed millions if they help the fraudsters by giving them an upfront loan in order to transfer a ton of money out of Nigeria. This scam dates back to at least 1996."

Folks - You can NOT get rich this way. As a matter of fact you can get real poor this way.    When will people realize that if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
