Welcome to the Fraud Aid Learning Center:

How to Recognize Fraud and What to do About It


Straight talk about fraud


It's everywhere

It comes at you from your doorstep and from the other side of the world

It's sneaky

It comes in hundreds of disguises

No one is immune

You'd have a lot more money in your pocket if everyone could spot fraud before the bad guys get the loot.


The study of scammery

Fraudsters do not need this site to learn how to execute their scams.  They have plenty of training grounds for that, learning their craft from established fraudsters, attending organized scam schools, and by studying marketing and psychology.

Recognizing a fraudster's scam is detective work.  It's problem solving; it's brain training.  It's putting puzzle pieces together.

Fraudsters create scams, and scams are puzzles.  Some have only a few pieces, taking one or two days to perpetrate; others are 2000 piece puzzles and take months to carry out. 

Learning to recognize scammery when you see it doesn't have to be boring or tedious.  You don't need to have a degree or special training.

It's a matter of learning to read signs: signs that tell you there is danger ahead in the road, and signs that tell you what the particular danger is.


The reward for recognizing fraud

You get to keep your money and other possessions, including your independence

You get to protect your friends and family

You get to help law enforcement put away the bad guys
