Discover The Signs Of An Email, Phone Or Social Media Scam In This Book

If you, like the rest of America, watched The Tinder Swindler, then you have probably come to the same terrifying reaction: is this how easy it is to be scammed?  Gini Graham Scott, America’s scam expert, was watching too, but she wasn’t surprised because she knows all about common scams just like Simon Leviev’s.

That’s why she has released a new book, which is available in five separate parts, called “I Was Scammed: The Many Scams Today and How to Avoid Becoming a Victim”.  The book covers in detail the five most common types of scams and fraudulent activities in the US, including merchant and customer scams, email, phone and social media scams, home sale and rental scams, and the particularly scary identity fraud.

According to CNBC and the Federal Trade Commission, American consumers reported losing more than $5.8 billion to fraud last year, which was up from $3.4 billion in 2020, representing a staggering increase of more than 70%. With this in mind, Gini Graham Scott believes that it is imperative for you to educate yourself about both the most common types of scams, and how to avoid them.

Broken into five clear subsections, the book offers clear, concise prose that helps you to understand how scammers ensnare their victims. In particular, it focuses on identity theft, teaching you how easy it is for a scammer to find and use your personal data and information.   According to the Aite-Novarica Group, 47% of Americans experienced identity theft last year, with the most common type being financial. Thankfully, through “I Was Scammed”, you will learn how to better protect your data online. 

Alongside advice on how to avoid being scammed, the book also offers you a step-by-step guide to recovering both financially and emotionally in the wake of a scam. You can now purchase the book as a paperback, hardcover or Kindle e-book via Amazon. 

The new release is a follow up to Graham Scott’s successful book about one of America’s most insidious scams, called The Big Con. The top-rated book is currently being turned into a documentary feature film, produced by Changemakers Productions and Dear Skyyler Productions. Gini Graham Scott, PhD, is an acclaimed academic, sociologist and prolific writer. She is proud to offer her specialist knowledge of social trends, science, and crime to her readers.
