    How Do You Deal With Internet Fraud - The key to...


    (Page 2 of 10 )

    The key to fraud is to persuade you that something is real, when in fact it is not. Once you accept that the fake is real then the fraud can take place - whatever it is. Whether you are buying the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco (both are real and have been seen by millions of people - and have been regularly 'sold') the essence is to believe the proposal that is put to you.

    Other types of fraud essentially persuade you to do something in the (wrong) belief that it should be done, or to accept something in settlement that proves to be without the value you were led to believe. But they all come back to the same thing - the fraudster has to persuade you that his vision of the world is the correct one.

    How do we normally counter fraud

    In ordinary life there are many things set up to help avoid fraud. Mostly we rely upon physical things - buildings (such as banks) help to prove to us that we are dealing with something real - talking to people on the telephone on a number that is in a directory helps us believe that they are who we expect. At a more sophisticated level, businesses have to be registered and the directors names and addresses made public. There are also agencies with a duty to respond to complaints over the trading practices of businesses.

    How does the Internet map to the real world

    The Internet is rather different. The biggest problem for the Internet user is that there is no physical reference to use. You can't go to a physical bookshop at www.amazon.com. You have to believe what the computer tells you, and that is the start of the problems.
