Scams by the numbers

Over half of Americans are victims of a scam.  Average victim in last three years lost ~$1500.

A detailed survey is reported here.  The numbers are probably low estimates because lots of people won't admit they've been scammed...

Top 5 most common scams in US:

  1. Online shopping scams
  2. Identity theft
  3. Phishing scams/wire fraud
  4. Credit card scams
  5. Imposter scams

Be careful out there...!
