The Scam Book Review:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O’Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can’t touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace. Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars—and their lives—in an attempt to topple Trace’s empire. It’s a scam that will take Fox and O’Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup—a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and Kate’s father, an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?

The Scam Book Review:

Can you imagine anything more sobering than to live your entire life thinking you were “this person,” then discover at the end of your life you were actually “that person” instead? To make things more gut wrenching, you discover “that person” had a better life, and you never enjoyed the benefits and privileges that life offered. Most Christians will live their entire lives and never make the discovery of who Christ has made them to be. The Scam originates from the crucible of author Wayne Kniffen’s own experience. He spent thirty years pastoring local churches when the Holy Spirit began to reveal to him his true identity in Christ. Divided into three sections, this guide helps you find your way in life. In “The Connection,” Kniffen exposes you to the beginning of all things which came from God. “The Disconnection” discusses where humankind is and how we got here. “The Reconnection” shares the details of what God did, how he did it, and why he did it. In The Scam, Kniffen demonstrates that the reason most Christians don’t reign in this life is because they are victims of identity theft. We’ve been scammed, and we don’t know it. He insists it’s time we started living up to our calling.

The Scam Traders Book Review:

If you walk around the street expecting to find a scammer, you'll never find one until the scammer makes a fool of you, then you will know that they exist. 'There are hours when crime pays, when stolen waters are sweet, and punishment although lame, will come.' Crimes originate from the hearts of men. Crime can lead to many circumstances such as murder, imprisonment, and death. This novel explains how the advance fee fraud is executed based on both the testimonies of victims and perpetuators. It exposes the cunning of the perpetuators and the greed of the victims. The advance fee fraud is believed to have originated in West Africa during the 1970s, otherwise called the 419 scam after the Nigeria criminal code. It has spread throughout other parts of the world in spite of warnings by various security agents. An average fraudster believes and understands the rule of the scamming game. The terrain for the game isn't a place for truth, but for dupe. The rule of the game is characterized by, love, hope, fear and faith. The fraudsters see themselves as heroes and not criminals, unless ill luck catches up with them. Even then, they never agree that they did anything wrong.

The Book of Scams Book Review:

These days fraudsters operate on a massive scale that was previously unimaginable. Thousands of people from all walks of life are relieved of billions of pounds each year. No-one knows the full scale of fraud because embarrassed victims often fail to report it. Despite all the press coverage, people keep falling for old tricks that often re-emerge in new guises. Scammers are ingenious, utterly ruthless and without conscience. Rodney Hobson, author of the best-selling beginners guide to stock market investing Shares Made Simple, has produced the first definitive guide to scams, categorising the different types, listing tell-tale signs and advising how to spot a fraudster and avoid becoming the next victim. This makes the basic principles behind each type of scam more recognisable and it shows how scams have evolved and re-emerged over time. Danger lurks for those unwary souls who part only too readily with their hard-earned cash and this book will help you be alert to the risks. It is also meant to entertain, as we learn to grudgingly admire as well as despise the ingenious crooks who lurk in the shadows.

419 Scam Book Review:

The "419" scam is an aspect of transnational financial crime with a 'modus operandi' peculiar to the Nigerian swindler. The most recurrent type of transnational "419" scam is the "advance fee fraud". It is usually introduced in the form of a business contract, a transfer of stolen money or money from over-invoiced contract, the purchase of crude oil from Nigeria at a relatively cheap rate, and transfer of money left by a deceased person (will scam). In all situations, the victim is eventually lured into an endless period of advance fee payment. The "black money" scam is almost as popular as the advance fee fraud and is sometimes, practiced in continuation of advance fee scam. The victim is introduced to a large sum of money that needs to be cleaned by a special liquid solution. The victim parts with money upon the supposition that the black money would be cleaned and given to him. The con man gets away with the victim's money leaving him with a bunch of worthless papers. The 419 Scam business is not restricted to defrauding foreigners. There are two groups of con men in Nigeria: The local and the International "419ners". The local groups specialize in defrauding Nigerians while the more advanced International syndicates fish out victims from Europe, America, Asia and South Africa. The local ones eventually grow to international status after they have made enough money to acquire computers, facsimile and telephone lines and other gadgets necessary for the scam business. "Tive's insight of the perpetrators behind the advance fee fraud coupled with his knowledge on the topic show that he is a true authority on the subject."- Ralph A. Gonzales, Special Agent-in-Charge, United States Secret Service "This book by Charles Tive is an excellent portrayal of the 419 scam, its operators, and its basic operations."-Gary M. Gibson, Regional Security Officer, U.S. Consulate Lagos. ".is a scholarly but readable summary of the history of and methods used by Nigerian scam / 419 operations."-The 419 Coalition, USA.
