Online scams are fraudulent schemes that are carried out over the internet. These scams can take many forms, including phishing, fake websites, investment scams, and romance scams. The goal of these scams is to trick people into giving away their personal or financial information or to steal money or goods from them.

Online scams can be carried out by individuals or organized groups, and they often rely on social engineering tactics to convince people to trust them. For example, scammers may create a fake website that looks like a legitimate online store, or they may send out emails that appear to be from a bank or other trusted organization, asking the recipient to provide their account information.

Other common types of online scams include fake tech support scams, in which scammers claim to be from a reputable tech support company and offer to fix a computer problem for a fee, and lottery or sweepstakes scams, in which scammers claim that the person has won a prize but must pay a fee to claim it.

To avoid falling victim to online scams, it’s important to be cautious and skeptical of unsolicited messages or requests for personal information. Always verify the authenticity of websites and organizations before providing any sensitive information or making a payment. Additionally, keep your computer and software up to date with the latest security patches and antivirus software to reduce the risk of malware infections.

  2. Was involved with a man named Derrick Lee Smith who was stationed in Africa. He told me he shot someone and needed money for a lawyer. I have sent him money several times. Then he needed money for flight home to me. Sent him money. His lawyer contacted me, (Thomas Marty) telling me he had been arrested for carrying cocaine across border lines for a friend and didn’t know it was in his bag. Me and mom send money. Wasn’t enough he was sent back to Africa to jail. They found the man who planted the drugs. He needed money to come home. He contacted me two days later saying he was in Jail in Asheville Police Dept NC and needed money. I didn’t give right away because I didn’t have at the moment. A month later I gave him money. He was asposed to get out and pay me the money on 5/24/18. Last I heard from him. I called and texted. Never returned my calls. I called his lawyer he said he would check into it. He never got back to me. I texted him telling him he and Derrick were scammers and God will punish them. He texted me back threatening me I will go to jail for talking to him like that. I lost a lot of money that Derrick said he would pay me back. DO NOT EVER GIVE MONEY TO A MAN IN THE MILITARY. IT”S A SCAM.
