Criminal minds can reach these days further than before, into our private lives, our homes and work offices. And there is little we can do about it.
Attack methods and tools vary from traditional attack vectors, which use malicious software and vulnerabilities present in almost all the programs and apps (even in the popular Windows operating systems), to ingenious phishing scams deployed from unexpected regions of the world, where justice can’t easily reach out to catch the eventual perpetrators.
Here’s the list of online scams to stay away from:
Phishing email scams

A guaranteed bank loan or credit card scam
