These days, it seems like fraud is everywhere: on television, on the internet, and in the newspapers. From phone scams to internet viruses that steal your personal information or individuals who promise you things that are too good to be true, it can be hard to know what is legitimate and what isn’t, and even harder to know when to trust someone or be wary.
