Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Why so many people fall for scams?
Do you receive junk mail, spam email or robocalls often? Nowadays, no one seems to be free from such solicitations. They are not only annoying but also potentially harmful. When you get sweepstakes, lottery or other mass-market scams, you may think you’re lucky. But that is exactly what those solicitors are intending. In many cases, consumers overestimate their ability judge what’s safe or unsafe and underestimate the risks and dangers of those traps and click, open or respond to the malicious invitations.
A new study found that those who are less educated tend to react more to financially motivating offers than others.
There is no easy money after all.
Enjoy reading and think what your strategies are to protect yourself from such scams.
