Financial Scams

Financial scams have been a danger since finance first emerged as an economic activity. To this day, the prospect of easy money using deception, fraud, or any illicit means attracts criminals who think they can get away with it. 

Investment scams have been a common type for ages. People are lured by the promise of easy returns, only to lose everything. Some are local and relatively small; others are enormous and even international in scale, such as the Bernie Madoff case. 

Banking scams are also a danger, having been around in some form or another since the first banks came into existence.
