Eight Ways You Can Be Scammed in 2013

Let me start with a story of how I was scammed. I received an e-mail about a telecommunication site. The information promised to help me start making money if I only bought the software that generates e-pin for the voucher the telecommunication firm sells to people.

I paid money for the software and haven't received the software till date.

What did I do wrong?

One, I refused to investigate the authenticity of the e-mail.
