The book release coincides with a recent expose from CNBC and the Federal Trade Commission. According to the news broadcaster, American consumers reported losing more than $5.8 billion to fraud last year, which was up from $3.4 billion in 2020, representing a staggering increase of more than 70%.
As the proliferation of national and international scams, frauds and hoaxes increases year upon year, and the stealth and confidence by which scam artists infiltrate the lives and bank accounts of everyday Americans becomes ever greater, Gini Graham Scott believes that it is imperative for people to educate themselves about both the most common types of scams and how to avoid them.
Broken into five clear subsections, the book offers clear, concise info that helps readers to understand how scammers ensnare their victims. In particular, it focuses on identity theft, teaching readers how easy it is for a scammer to find and use one’s personal data and information.
According to the Aite-Novarica Group, 47% of Americans experienced identity theft last year, with the most common type being financial. With “I Was Scammed”, readers will learn how to better protect their data online.
Alongside advice on how to avoid being scammed, the book also offers readers a step-by-step guide to recovering both financially and emotionally in the wake of a scam.
Interested readers can now purchase the book as a paperback, hardcover or Kindle e-book via Amazon. More information can be accessed at https://www.amazon.com/Was-Scammed-Updated-Expanded-Becoming-ebook/dp/B09PNB38GJ
