Caveat emptor - Let the buyer beware!

There are a lot of shaddy people out there. It is easy to get intrigued by tall tales spun by ads over the internet. Remember, there are two types of people: those you who are honest and genuinely want to help you, and those who are only after your hard earned cash. It is difficult to research who to trust, because many top level scams develop "review websites" which recommend their products. Be careful anytime you see a webpage with pop-ups to collect your personal information - ie. name, email address, etc. It is important to protect your personal information and keep it safe from theives. I recently read an article about a Web cafe in Africa where a group of teenager hackers work 24/7 stealing people's identities, rack up huge bigs and ship goods to store houses to make money on the black market. Again, be careful. Make sure you are on a secure server, that your browser has strong encryption for any banking you do online. Don't get sucked in by lies, just because you see a video of a someone stating they made 1,000,000 dollars in the past week doing practically nothing online doesn't mean that this is true. Caveat emptor. Let the buyer beware!
