搜尋:scam

      There is a new kind of scam called “phishing,” which has plagued the Internet. Phishing sounds the same as the word “fishing,” and it implies a thief is trying to lure people into giving away valuable information. Like real fishermen, phishers use bait in the form of fake emails and false websites to con people into revealing credit card numbers, account usernames, and passwords. They imitate well-known banks, online sellers, and credit card companies. Successful phishers may convince as many as 5 percent of the people they contact to respond and give away their personal financial information. Because people who have access to the Internet (about 350 million) mostly live in wealthier countries, even tricking only 5 percent of them can make a lot of money.
      Since there is so much money to make through this kind of scam, it has caught the interest of more than just small-time crooks. Recently, police tracked down an organized phishing group in Eastern Europe who had stolen millions of dollars from people online. Further investigation revealed that this group had connections with a major crime gang in Russia.
      How can innocent websurfers protect themselves? Above all, always be wary of any email with urgent requests for personal financial information. Also, messages from phishers will not address recipients by name because they really don’t know who the recipients are yet. On the other hand, valid messages from your bank or other companies you normally deal with typically include your personal name.

      【題組】48 According to the article, who was behind the Eastern European phishing scam?
      (A) A bank employee.
      (B) A Russian crime gang.
      (C) Small-time crooks.
      (D) The police.

Laura and Anthony finally drove to Texas so they could be on hand for the birth. But once they arrived,Ramirez avoided their daily phone calls. After there weeks, the couple drove back to New York-empty-handed and emotionally crushed.

      Would you like to make thousands of dollars a month without working? Then Greg Cheney wants to talk to you. You can see Greg on television every day. He is always selling something. Now he has a new product. He calls it the “greatest diet pill in the world.” However, the “greatest diet pill” is really the “biggest scam” in the world. “This is the easiest way in the world to make a fortune,” says Cheney in his TV commercial. “If you get 20 people to try this product, we will send you a thousand dollars,” the con artist promises. And some people believe him. “It sounded so good,” says Kelly Eagan. “I signed up the same day.” The rip-off works like this. Cheney isn’t really selling diet pills. He is selling websites that advertise diet pills. You buy a website. Then you wait for people to visit the website and buy the diet pills. However, the numbers don’t work. The diet pills cost $39.95 a bottle. Twenty bottles cost about $800. How can Cheney pay the seller $1,000 to make $800? The answer is that he can’t. Cheney sells the websites for $35. But most people pay much more than that. After you sign up, he sells you a lot more things. Cheney says the extra things bring more customers to the websites. However, Kelly Eagan paid him $5,175 and only one person visited her site. Cheney has a list of people who have made a lot of money. He says that he sends out checks every week-$3,500, $5,600, even $22,782. But even some people on the list have lost money. For example, Susan Kauffman is on the moneymaker list. She 第 4 頁,共 6 頁 says she spent $5,000 and sold about 23 bottles of diet pills. Igor Spilsak is on the list, too. He paid $2,000 and sold six bottles of diet pills. However, in the commercial he says, “This is the easiest thing I’ve ever done and I’m making more than $100 an hour.” Why did he lie? Cheney paid him $600 to be in the commercial. Cheney insists that you can make money if you work hard and don’t quit. However, it seems that one person is getting rich quick and that’s Greg Cheney.
