You'd be alarmed at the scale of internet scams and how successful they are. We laugh at some of the well known email ones and wonder how people get duped but there's many many more types.

There's always one simple rule - you just ask yourself - why is a complete stranger wanting to help me, another complete stranger, become better off financially - the answer is always the same - to make themselves richer and you poorer.

The amount of scams just in daily life is enormous too and a lot done under the guise of charity. That 'leave your clothes out for collection' is a cracking moneyspinner to name one.
