Why people fall for internet scams
As an internet user and someone who has been involved in internet marketing for many years I’m very well aware of numerous internet scams that scam honest people out of their money every single day and the number of internet scams is continually increasing.
One of the most obvious reasons that people fall for these scams is because they honestly hope to find some real opportunity online that can help them make money.
But if you have no experience in internet marketing you can easily get scammed because of the deceptive marketing methods scammers use to lure people into buying their products.
There is no such a thing as internet police so you can report a particular internet scam and get their website shut down. If it was so easy then everyone would be safe from internet scams.

you can use these sites only as a database of scam reports to browse through in order to find a report on a paricular company and by doing so you can save yourself from falling for an internet scam.
