Ready to bust some scams?
My latest book “Scam Detection Kit: Scientific Tools to Demolish Hoaxes, Scams, Frauds and Everything In-Between ” is now available on Amazon. Humorous, scientific and brutally effective, the Scam Detection Kit arms the reader with a trusty set of tools to spot and demolish all kinds of cons, from harmless hoaxes and white lies, to pseudoscientific claims and deadly frauds.
Cons and scams come in all shapes and sizes, but share the same characteristics that can be their undoing. All such shady practices rely on confusion and lies. By arming ourselves with the proper scientific tools to see through lies and bogus claims, as well as our own misconceptions, we become empowered to tackle the world’s most dangerous cons and live a scam-free life!
This book took me a lot longer to write than most others. It is a more general and layman-friendly approach to scams than my more technical “Snake Oil” book.
I hope you enjoy reading the Scam Detection Kit as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I also hope this handy kit helps you dodge a scam or two in your lives!
My latest ebook: Snake Oil! How ‘Make Money Online’ scams work …and how to avoid them is available from Amazon!
Coauthored with good friend and epic scambuster Kay McMahon, this book blows the lid off the countless lies and scams that surround the so-called “Make Money Online” (MMO) industry; a shady industry that supposedly teaches people how to become rich through the internet, but in reality it mostly makes them poorer.
From the countless products that promise to make you rich online, most are bogus or scams that only make the product’s creator richer. This book empowers the reader to see through all such scams and find the rare good deal amongst an ocean of scams.
The victims of MMO scams become poor and get trapped in a vicious circle of buying more and more MMO products in hopes of finding the “real deal”.
Through this book’s pages, Kay and me explore the reality of the MMO industry and cut through all the hype, misinformation and bamboozle that surround most products that promise overnight riches.
This brutally honest book will help you to avoid online moneymaking scams and help you become more powerful in understanding how some scammers work behind the scenes.
If you’re hoping to make money online, you should really think about reading this book before you spend any money on any secret MMO recipe that promises to make you rich with no effort!
My second Kindle book: Opposing Forces: How online reputation management can work for fame or shame is now available from Amazon Kindle store.
The Opposing Forces
Online reputation management refers to everything that can bring fame or shame to any organization, product or individual on the internet.
Since the advent of the internet, reputation management has exploded into a multibillion (yes, with a “b”) industry that brings people and businesses out of obscurity and can equally plunge others into the pits of online infamy. The powers that control online reputation are often mutually exclusive as positive reputation management directly opposes negative reputation management and usually the one with the most resources wins.
Through this book’s pages I explore all levels of online reputation management; from multinational corporations to your local pub, every business’s online reputation can be altered with rep management. I also focus on personal reputation management and how malicious individuals can ruin a person’s social and personal lives by defaming them online.
“Opposing Forces: How online reputation management can work for fame or shame” cuts through a lot of misinformation that surrounds online reputation management today. Many reputation management firms, specialists and so-called gurus thrive in providing false and misleading information to further their own financial and online reputation goals; this book attempts to cut through all that and provide the reader with a clear picture of what online reputation management is really all about.
