Item description for Cyber Alert: How the World Is Under Attack from a New Form of Crime by Peter Warren...

Through profiles of individual victims and companies, this exploration of cyber crime identifies the commonly used criminal methods, such as viruses, spam, and junk e-mail, and the legal rights of users against this increasingly international phenomenon. Old-fashioned criminals are waking up to the new opportunities and exponential payback of internet crime, adapting schemes like blackmail and money laundering to this vast new landscape. To better expose the activity of cyber felons who cost consumers in the United States about $50 billion a year, this guide also gives preventative advice to help the not-so-savvy computer users protect themselves from financial and identity theft on the Internet.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cyber Alert: How the World Is Under Attack from a New Form of Crime?

is it too good to be true?  Aug 5, 2005
Maybe the best aspect of Warren's book are the numerous examples it cites of actual fraud mail. He writes for a reader who is a novice with computers. It is such a readership that is most vulnerable to all sorts of electronic fraud attempts. The good news from the book is that you do not have to be some sort of computer guru to avoid falling for electronic scams.

Warren describes what might arrive in your email. Purporting to be from a relative of a [dead] important person, offering you a commission of millions of dollars if you will help him or her. There are other types of come-ons in your mail. All seeming too good to be true. This is where the book's education is useful. Basically, if it is too good to be true, that tells you something.
