Exclamation National Internet Fraud Watch Info Center
I ran across this great internet scam watchdog group (the National Internet Fraud Watch Info Center) that notes all kinds of scams going on via the net as well as takes formal complaints and info from victims of scams.

If you're rec'd a work from home or other scam targeted at you, or if you have questions about a particular scam email, this is a great resource!

Be sure to check out their section on scams against businesses for info on how to recognize a scam plus details on current scams that are victimizing business owners of all sizes.

Tess,

This is great info, and I'm going to bookmark this site! I would love to rid the world of scammers even tho it may be a daunting task. It just amazes me the time and energy some people put into coming up with these scams. They could be rich doing something legitimate with all that time and energy!

Beware of anyone asking for money to "show" you their system, which is different that paying money to invest in a business after you have seen the presentation.

Good luck all!

I think this group is great! There are too many people out there who would be suckered into these scams and usually end up paying a hefty price. It always seems that it is the people who have the greatest desire to work end up being scammed... Unfortunately we all know at least one person who has been conned by these kinds of things and having a site like this seems a great way to reduce un-necessary heartache. It always pays to invest your time into researching your opportunities.
