This is a great book. Each chapter starts with a personal account of the con being discussed. It may make you loose faith in humanity, but it equips you with what to look out for. Read and learn.

Well written, engaging book. While I was already aware of most of the items covered in the book, I would highly recommend to more senior people who may not be as aware of all of the scams that modern technology can bring to their proverbial doorstep quite easily. This is also a great book for teens. I believe that most people in this world mean well, but making young adults aware of the existence of those who don't, and their tactics, can be useful.

Great read, very intriguing stories, and a lot of information to watch out for people trying to rip you off. Main thing when anyone or anything (emails etc) tries to get money or information out of you always side to the side of caution. Some cons will even invest months to try to con you, so always get everything in writing, always do your own investigation first of their situation. Again great book!
