    Just so many dumb people on this world.
    In today's world, with all the technology and everything, if you get scammed it's your own fault!

    The internet dating scams have been on most news channels in Australia lately. There was a show about it that was just sad, kinda funny. I guess it's just a tax on the stupid.

    I suspect the figures are conservative, due to victims being hesitant to admit their immense greed/stupidity/gullibility, etc.

    Know who you're dealing with is impossible on the internet.
    There are some straight forward steps to take in any transaction online that will protect from any fraud. The most important being to use your common sense

    Hacking is simply not about losing money... All the net-connected (at least) PCs are already hacked -- by Big G, who else? Whatelse remains of you is hacked by your governments -- state and fed. Then comes the turn of small time so-called internet hackers. The top 2 looters are the top 2 mentioned above. The knowledge of the amount of hacked data they have collected, and their people can access is not for the faint-hearted! lol
