The E-Suckers List
from the sounds-like-fun dept
It’s probably not much of a surprise to anyone, but online scammers tend to keep lists of users who are easy to scam — and, of course, those lists get passed around (read: sold) among other scammers, so once you’ve been taken in by one, expect to be taken in by many more. Of course, the warning about this list comes from the Office of Fair Trade in the UK, and the announcement about it certainly implies that they actually have a copy of one such list (though, there’s no real evidence given). If that’s the case, why not contact those on the list, and let them know they’re on the list? Wouldn’t that be much more effective than making a general statement?
