THE ONLINE VERSION ATTEMPTS TO GET YOUR IDENTITY INFORMATION AS WELL

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

THIS CUTE LITTLE SCAM PURPORTS TO BE A MULTIPLE CHOICE SHORT I.Q. TEST WHICH ROOKS YOU IN WITH A COLORFUL FORMAT AND FASCINATING QUESTIONS BECAUSE ALMOST EVERYONE'S FAVORITE TOPIC IS HIM/HERSELF...WE ARE A SOURCE OF NEVER-ENDING ENLIGHTENMENT TO OURSELVES...

THE QUESTIONNAIRE ITSELF SEEMS HARMLESS ENOUGH AND OF COURSE YOU ARE ALWAYS SEEKING TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT YOURSELF AND WANT TO COMPARE YOUR IQ TO THOSE OF OTHERS ---WELL, THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU DO HERE.

YOU DON'T FIND OUT YOU HAVE BEEN SCREWED UNTIL YOU HAVE TAKEN THE TEST AND WHILE YOU ARE WAITING FOR THE RESULTS TO COME BACK, ONE OF TWO THINGS HAPPEN:

YOU ARE ASKED A SERIES OF QUESTIONS INCLUDING YOUR DATE OF BIRTH, ETC. ALLEGEDLY FOR COMPARISON PURPOSES --- DO NOT GIVE IT OUT. IT MIGHT SEEM LIKE A LEGITIMATE QUESTION FOR SCIENTIFIC STATISTICAL DATA COLLECTION PURPOSES BUT IT IS JUST A WAY TO GET YOUR IDENTIFYING INFORMATION -- THE KIND THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE OUT ON THE TELEPHONE OR THE INTERNET AND CERTAINLY NOT TO A COMPLETE STRANGER.YOU ANSWER THIS PART OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE, YOUR IDENTITY IS STOLEN.

THE SECOND THING THAT CAN HAPPEN, YOU WILL BE PRESENTED WITH AN INDEFINITE SERIES OF OFFERS -- ENROLL FOR AN AUTO INSURANCE PLAN, SEND FOR A "FREE" SAMPLE OF A HOT, NEW PRODUCT ONLY IT'S NOT FREE BECAUSE THEY WILL BE ASKING FOR YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER TO ALLEGEDLY PAY FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING ---THIS IS AN EXCELLENT SCAM OF HOW YOU GET THOSE "UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT" THAT SO MANY PEOPLE IN RIP OFF REPORT COMPLAIN ABOUT. THESE GUYS HIT YOU WITH SO MANY OF THESE THAT YOU WILL NEVER COMPLETE THE OFFERS! THERE IS A SCAM IN ALMOST EVERY OFFER. EVEN IF YOU DO MANAGE SOMEHOW TO SOLDIER THROUGH TO THE END, YOU WILL BE HIT WITH A CREDIT CARD CHARGE AND A QUESTIONNAIRE THAT WANTS YOUR IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS WELL.

DO NOT GIVE IT -- IT IS NOT REAL. IT IS AN IDENTITY THEFT SCAM.

THE FIRST RULE OF THE NEW INTERNET PROTOCOL IS THAT THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM TO BE IN CYBERSPACE! DON'T TRUST ANYONE THERE!

THIS SEEMS LIKE GOOD, OLD DOWN TO EARTH COMMON SENSE.

WHY IS CYBERSPACE ANY DIFFERENT FROM THE ORDINARY CITY STREETS WHERE CON ARTISTS AND VARIOUS RIP OFFS DAILY ABOUND?

YOU THINK SOME OF THESE SAME STREET GUYS AND CON ARTIST CAN'T ACCESS A COMPUTER AND DO SOME OF THE SAME SORT OF CROOKED STUFF THEY DO EVERY DAY? THE SAME SCAMS AND HUSTLES AND SHUCK AND JIVE KIND OF STUFF?

YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL AND ONLY DO BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE, MERCHANTS YOU KNOW AND TRUST AND, TO ME, THIS MEANS A MORTAR AND BRICKS ADDRESS THAT CAN BE VERIFIED IN THE YELLOW PAGES BY DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE AND THAT HAS A NATIONAL REPUTATION.

AND I CHECK WITH THE RIP OFF REPORT ON EVERY MERCHANT I WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH AND MAKE SURE THAT THE POTENTIAL EMPLOYER I WANT TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION TO IS NOT IN THE RIP OFF REPORT EITHER.

I LIKE MONEY.

I WANT TO KEEP MINE.
