We live in a world of schemes, swindles and shady deals. I know. I’ve been navigating its dark waters most of my career. The average consumer is slammed with fraudulent offers every day, from “You may already be a winner” sweepstakes to impostors trying to steal your hard-earned cash.
It’s easy to fall for these scams, despite the fact that most of us know better. Or should know better.
You probably realize, for example, that there’s no such thing as a “free” product, that if an offer looks too good to be true, it usually is, and to always, always, shop around.
“But this one will be different,” you say to yourself before wiring money to Nigeria.
No, it won’t.
