9 Internet Scams We're Still Falling for in 2018 - David Pogue

It just never ends. No matter how much publicity these scams get, no matter how many years old the internet is, people still hand over their money to scammers.

It doesn’t matter how old you are; last year, in fact, more consumers age 20 to 29 reported losing money to fraud than the over-70 crowd did.

It doesn’t matter how powerful or educated you are, either. Just ask Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, who exposed the campaign’s email stash by falling for a phishing scam.

Hackers stole $172 billion from consumers in 20 countries in 2017, according to Norton;  2.7 million Americans reported some form of fraud to the Federal Trade Commission. (Top states: Florida, Georgia, and Nevada.)
