Today’s Scam-Artists, also referred to as Con-Artists are quickly evolving into tomorrow’s Scram Artists. A Scram Artist is someone who gains the trust of another and fraudulently relieves them of money or assets and attempts to stay under the authority’s radar by continuously moving or changing their identity.
Three key factors often overlooked that tremendously assist scam artists
Licensing, depending on the type of scam being conducted can create a false hope for the victim. The thought that if this “guy” is licensed, he is legit, is far too often accepted. Just because someone is licensed, doesn’t always mean they have your best interests in mind- they just might be out to steal, just like un-licensed crooks. Contracts can create loopholes within the system that can produce a financial disaster for victims who attempt to recover their losses. To make matters worse, the victim often spends more on legal fees than they have lost, and recover absolutely nothing in the end. Corruption thrives in today’s society. Getting the “authorities” to enforce laws and help the victim has become quite the challenge. It’s not shocking to pick up a newspaper, watch the news or go online and find reports of so called “trusted officials” who get caught “red handed” for scams.
Although Scam/Scram Artists continue to use their tools to prey on others at each new location they call home, there are technological advancements available that can greatly benefit the victim. The internet is abundant with a vast amount of information from consumers, bloggers and victims.
