Educating the public regarding Internet Investment Fraud/Ponzi/Scams
Whether you know it or not, you have a bulls-eye painted on you; because �YOU� are a target of Internet Fraud. In America you have a 1 in 10 chance, and in Europe a 1 in 8 chance, of being defrauded in the coming year. Many of you have already been a victim of fraud and don�t even know it yet. This fraud takes on many different forms: E-mail, Mortgage, MLM (Multi-Level Marketing), or an Investment Opportunity via the Internet, by phone, a meeting, or from a well-meaning friend. It has been estimated that in 2007, over $500 Billion Dollars worldwide was stolen from Internet Investment Fraud. Almost $300 Billion of that in the United States alone, and the actual number will never be known. Mainly because not all victims report it due to embarrassment, the small amount lost, or knowing how to report it. In addition to being defrauded, you also run the risk of being a victim of Identity Theft.
