Description:

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has issued this alert to provide information on avoiding Internet fraud. Because the Internet makes it easy to reach a large audience, fraudsters have no trouble producing credible-looking email messages, postings to discussion lists, chat rooms, and online bulletin boards. This site lists the types of fraudulent messages and announcements that might be found on the Internet and gives tips on how to spot fraud. Finally, Internet Fraud offers a sample of recent successful cases the SEC has won against Internet fraudsters.
