Scam and spam are bad, don’t ever trust their offers! Scammers and spammers are the sort of people whose only objective is to steal your money along with your important personal information. Digital technology along with the Internet is actually something that is highly beneficial to us all. We can utilize digital technology to assist us in so many things, such as harnessing its abilities in business marketing and other things similar in nature. On the flip side, however, the digital world of internet and technology is not without its dark side. Some of most prevalent types of fraud on the internet are scam, spam and phishing.
Scam is one of the most prevalent form of fraud on the internet today, as this is one of the most common occurrences on the internet today. The most distinctive characteristics of scam are: It almost always promises things that are often very appealing and attractive to their prospective victims, such as a scheme that offers ways to acquire money easily with little to no work. Or simply offering something that is just too good to be true.
Scammers on the other hand, are the people behind the program. The terms ‘scam’ and ‘scammers’ usually go hand in hand with spams and spammers. Spammers are people who send out excessive offers. Scammers and spammers commonly utilize email in their attempt to commit fraud. They also make their offers through websites and even send their offers directly through bogus seminars such as Shaun Stenning AKA John Phanchalad who has held many seminars in various countries. It is now proven, however, that he is a nothing more than a cheater and scammer, check this link – Shaun Stenning and his scam program.
Exercise caution at all times. Whenever you’re offered a “how to get rich” program and you come across testimonials of how someone is successful after joining the program, you should be wary because chances are they’re all fake. Once you’ve committed your money to this program, chances are your money is already lost.
Scammers also typically steal email accounts, contact lists, and other accounts like Facebook or Twitter. Hence, if you get a notification on Facebook or twitter via Email, please avoid visiting the links that they provide. There’s a good chance they somehow may be able to steal your account information. This type of fraud is called ‘phishing.’

Whenever you receive several interest and enticing offers like “how to earn money easily,” or “how to get rich” and so on and so forth, keep in mind that if things sound too good to be true then they probably are.
