Scam Prevention at Marcus Evans

When I open my e-mail today, I had so many emails on my spam folder. I just deleted my spam folders about 4 hours ago and here I am again, dealing with "you won $116,000,000 and please provide your name, address, phone number and bank account number" which is an obvious scam. I was wondering why some people take the bait of email hoaxes.

When your friends warned you to not open an email with links, please don't! But, sometimes the curiosity is more tempting so; the moment you click the link, computer freezes and crash, congratulations for being a hard headed, you got a virus!

How do you protect yourself from online fraud? It is really hard to detect especially when you are not a computer savvy. As long as you do not give out your personal information such as address, birth date, bank accounts and passwords, you are alright. Online users have to deal with fraud and scams but, imagine the bulk of cyber scams which business owners have to deal with?

Marcus Evans provides conferences and awareness regarding cyber-crimes to business owners and companies. There are so many business nuisance, financial scams, and phishing hoaxes that are sophisticated and if the business sectors do not armed themselves with the right knowledge on how to combat them then; it will surely compromise their business.
