Study of Internet Scams Finds that People Really Do Prefer Dancing Pigs to Security.
Marblehead, MA, 09.06.14 – Few advances in technology have changed the world as much as the Internet. Since the mid-90’s, the Internet’s impact on every aspect of our lives has been extraordinary – sadly, running in parallel has been the equally ambitious growth of Internet scams and fraud.
The Daily Scam was created in 2014 by two Marblehead residents, Doug Fodeman and David Deutsch, as a portal to help increase user-awareness of computer-related, Internet-based threats from scams and fraudulent practices. The Daily Scam will help Internet users significantly decrease their online risks.
The Daily Scam is a web portal offering tips and videos to recognize and avoid online scams. The portal contains a vast scam collection divided into eighteen categories. In addition to this resource, registered users can subscribe to a weekly newsletter filled with up-to-date information about current scams targeting Internet users. Most of the information is free to enjoy; full members have access to more advanced articles and videos such as our Supersleuth Series, discussion forums and quizzes to test their knowledge.
