    Defending and Protecting Net Newbies

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Tantamount to the paradigm shift in communication created by Alexander Graham Bellís invention of the telephone, the Internet provides a medium for instantaneous access to information, business decisions, transactions, and personal interactions.As Edward Blake divulged dual sides of the human spirit in "Songs of Innocence and Experience", likewise there is a dissonant dark side on the Internet.

    Wolves cloaked in sheep's clothing menacingly lurk on the Internet, waiting to fleece their next innocent lamb, commonly referred to as the "net newbie". Once their victim is sighted, the end result is a virtual net newbie nightmare, as the ravenous wolves siphon money into their gluttonous bank accounts.

    There are five notable fleecing schemes focusing on the innocence of net newbies, as well as other naÔve, unsuspecting Internet surfers:

    1. Retail Fleecing -- Expensive high-value items are offered at low or discount "Internet prices" or auctioned off. Typically wolves possess exceptionally efficient systems for amassing your money, but inevitably dispatch either never occurs, or an inferior product is received. Synonymous to pulling light out of a black hole are net newbies retrieving refunds.

    2. Business Fleecing -- Better expressed as "scam, slam, thank you ma'am" identify business opportunities promoting fast-track money, e.g., $35,000 in 10 weeks, $100,000 to $500,000 in one year, lotteries, money doublers, etc., may appear feasible, but are not probable.
