Compendium of Scams


2023 is going to be a big year for scams. We are going to see some record numbers come out for 2022 and don't expect it to stop. Success breeds success for scammers as well as those trying to stop the schemes. Let's hope it is more for the latter to protect consumers, stop funding criminals, and save everyone some hard earned cash.

Over the past year and a half I've been amassing resources and posts regarding a cornucopia of consumer based scams. Below is a "Compendium of Scams," detailing out the various presentations and satirical posts. While a lot is detailed out, this is not an exhaustive list. Plus, scams are always changing. This information is available to anyone and can be distributed. I hope it helps you in your fight against scams!
