Internet Fraud Prevention
Internet Fraud Prevention Resources: The term "Internet fraud" refers generally to any type of fraud scheme that uses one or more components of the Internet - such as e-mail, chat rooms, message boards, or Web sites - to present fraudulent solicitations to prospective victims and consumers, to conduct fraudulent transactions, or to transmit the proceeds of fraud to financial institutions or to other connected with the scheme. - From Phishing and Identity theft to investment and Work-at-home fraudulent schemes.

In general, the same types of fraud schemes that have victimized consumers and investors for many years before the creation of the Internet are now appearing online, sometimes with particular refinements that are unique to Internet technology.

With the explosive growth of the Internet, and e-commerce in particular, internet fraudsters or online criminals try to present fraudulent schemes in ways that look, as much as possible, like the goods and services that the vast majority of legitimate e-commerce merchants offer. In the process, they not only cause harm to consumers and investors, but also undermine consumer confidence in legitimate e-commerce and the Internet. - Ref: Internet Fraud Section - U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC

At this time there are no effective tools or automated software to prevent Internet fraud at the consumer level. - By now the best solutions we have to prevent Internet fraud is to be well informed and use our common sense.
