Watch out for scams

The most profitable kind of fraud does not involve technology, which requires extensive knowledge of computers and too much preparation for a success rate of almost nil. 

Instead, the fraud with the biggest payoff is of a social nature, manipulating victims instead of computer systems. Thieves gain their target's confidence and manipulate them into doing things they would not normally do.

With the exception of phishing or credit and debit card fraud (skimming), these are the main scams occurring today. Though they are not directly linked to the financial world, it is best to be aware of them so you can better protect yourself.
