"SCAM" is a compelling guide on modern-day scams, which cost consumers billions of dollars annually. It includes information on over 30 of the most common types of scams, including ones that involve email, shopping, finances, and standard payment apps like PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, and Cash App.
"Consumer fraud and scams have skyrocketed since the pandemic, especially with today's economic concerns. As a result, con artists are increasingly preying on innocent victims' vulnerabilities, fears, and uncertainties,"
Oje's concern and desire to help people avoid being victims intensified when she learned that close friends and family members had also been scam victims and how much they lost.
In addition to providing information on common scams, the book offers easy tactics to thwart scammers and best practices if a fraudster has already victimized you. It includes examples of scam text messages, emails, and voicemail scripts, a list of red flags, and general tips to avoid becoming a victim.
