Scam-Proof Your Assets
Scam-Proof Your Assets is a book that everyone should read simply because scams can happen to any of us. Garrett Sutton, Esq. is an asset protection expert and, in this Rich Dad Advisor book, he provides a plethora of scenarios in which regular people such as you and I get scammed by smooth talkers. In fact, there are so many scams out there that it is guaranteed that each and every one of us has been hit up by one of these deceptive people at some time or another. The book teaches the reader that we are all a target of scams. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, or how much money you have or don’t have.
Scam-Proof Your Assets describes how each scam works in detail and catalogs them all from the infamous Ponzi scheme and Frank Abagnale’s counterfeit check scheme to today’s Nigerian princes and princesses who need your bank account information so that you can help them claim millions of dollars. Some scams are not quite so obvious though. This book tells the reader what to look for to distinguish between a real deal and a fake.
In one story, a lady received a phone call from the Publisher’s Clearing House. She recognized the caller’s name as someone who was, in fact, a representative of the company and so when the lady asked her to send money to claim her prize money for taxes and fees, she felt comfortable doing so. Unfortunately, this one-time payment became one of many and, before she knew it, she had paid thousands of dollars only to realize that her “Big Check” from Publisher’s Clearing House would probably never arrive. She had been taken.
The sad part of all the stories in the book is that there are so many scams out there that wipe out people’s life savings. Take, for instance, real estate scams. In one scenario, a payment was redirected by email to be sent to another address. Neither realtor involved in the transaction had sent the email and so the person buying the house lost this large sum of money that wouldn’t be replaced.
If there’s anything you learn from this book, perhaps it is to not trust anyone. Check things once, then double check them. And don’t make hasty decisions because you are being pressured to do so. This book is an excellent read that should be passed on from person to person to stop those people who are in the business of scamming others.
