Last year, hundreds of thousands of individuals learned the hard way that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The number of Internet scams documented each year is on rise, and some victims are feeling significant financial losses.
Today I wanted to share a latest infographic with you, on international internet scam hotspots which tells you more about it like
- The Internet Crime Complaint Center receives over 300,000 complaints each year.
- These internet scams amounted to an almost $600 million loss in 2009.
- Men lose $1.25 for every $1.00 loss reported by women.
- Nearly 66% of the complaints originated from the US.
