Have you ever lost money to any kind of scam?

Have you ever lost money to any kind of scam? I am referring to work at home scams, Nigerian scams, etc. I'm always on the lookout for scams to write about for my website to warn people about them.

  • No, but I'm not very trusting of things like that either. If in doubt I delete when it comes to my email and I work at home by doing web design and selling my own creations, I don't trust any of those "make money at home" things.

  • I have, but it was literally 15 years ago and I couldn't even tell you what it was all about now... I just know I lost $40... I was young and dumb!

  • NOPE!! While sometimes it may be tempting...like the old saying goes..."if something is too good to be true, it probably isn't!!

  • Nope! And I seriously can't believe that Nigerian scam has worked so well. I feel bad since it's mostly the elderly that fall for it :(
