Mike Milotte in the Irish Times gave an honest account of getting stung by a fraudster when he replied to an ad for a type of camera he was thinking of buying. Read here . All the good stuff about the internet that makes using Gmail or Facebook easy and attractive can also be used by con-artists looking for ways to steal your money. Mike admits he was so caught up in getting the right camera he ignored the warning signs. In this case when the vendor said they would have to charge 17 per cent for a credit card purchase and asked for a direct bank transfer it should have been the moment to walk away. Fair dues to Mike for explaining just how easy it can be to get caught out if you let your guard down.
