SERVICES oRGANISATIoN the inteRnet changes at such a rapid pace, and so quickly, that it’s sometimes difficult to keep track of it. Unfortunately one section of our society that seems to keep track of changing technologies are the unscrupulous fraudsters and con artists. in our previous articles we discussed the issue of identity theft and how to protect your privacy. in this issue we will be highlighting the various scams used by fraudsters and con artists striving to part you from your hard earned money. Before we start, the scams listed below all exist and they are not myths. the reason they exist is because (1) there are unscrupulous people out there and (2) there are trusting or vulnerable, people who fall for them. there have been many studies completed on the psychology of selling. Some researchers break sales down into two types, the ‘fear’ sale and the ‘greed’ sale. the ‘fear’ sale is where if you don’t do something or buy something then something bad will happen. if you don’t buy a burglar alarm then you will be burgled. that is a hard sell as people are more prone to part with their money where there is a gain to be had rather than a risk to be countered. the scammers rely on the ‘greed’ sell. it’s much easier to get somebody’s attention and get them to ‘buy’ something, if they think that they are going to profit from it. there are many different types of internet scams in operation throughout the world and they cover a variety of topics, all of which are designed to part you from your money. they include but are not limited to: Financial Banking & online account scams, credit card scams, Phoney fraud alerts, Requests for your account information also known as ‘phishing’. chain letters, Pyramid schemes, cheque John Drinan, Senior Customer Relationship Manager ESBIE, Noel o’Neill Financial Controller Cara Partners and Derek Russell Commercial Manager ESBIE.
