SCAMS, LIES & DOUBLE DEALING (Part 1) - Episode 67

Sunday, 3 May

This episode is about creative scams. That’s scams that are aimed, not at the general public, but specifically at those working in the creative industries.
 
QUOTES:
It was the heart of any scam or fiddle -- keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing. Terry Pratchett
We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we're being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned? Guy Ritchie 
There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. Evgeny Morozov
Who is going to believe a con artist? Everyone, if she is good. Andy Griffith
A lot of hackers set up scam sites. They can impersonate a site like PayPal, for instance. Michael Demon Calce
Hollywood is largely about scammers and con men. It was my main livelihood for about 25 years, and the scams were beautiful and ugly, cheap and expensive, but, wow, were there a lot of scammers. Ben Stein
