Oh Internet, how do I love and enjoy thee; the abundance of information and service you provide and the ability to accomplish and finish tasks at a very convenient fashion. However, this ability to make an abundance of information and services readily available also attracts ne’er-do-wells looking to make a quick buck at your expense.
Below is a video from one of my favorite web shows, “Tom’s Top 5,” hosted by Tom Merritt. Tom is a former executive editor for CNET, and currently works at This Week in Tech (or “TWiT,” for short) as a host of Tech News Today, Current Geek, FourCast, East Meets West, Top 5 and Sword and Laser. In this episode, Tom discusses the top 5 Internet scams that, unfortunately, have duped many innocent and unsuspecting people and made a some selfish and greedy *wagging my finger* con-artists very wealthy. You watch “Tom’s Top 5” on YouTube and on the Revision3 internet television network.
