    I am sick of getting all of these scams in my email from people from other countries scamming us here in America. Why aren't they caught and prosecuted?

      The same technology that makes our lives easy, is the same technology that makes it easy for cyber-criminals to cover their tracks or quickly move their businesses from one location to another, once they have been discovered.

      Also, it is not easy to catch these cyber-criminals, especially when they are in certain countries where there are little or no resources to tackle them.

    How do I stop fake Freud's from sending scam mail to my e-mail?

    If I sent my name and personal information is it possible for them to harm my credit or to put me in debt any way.

      Mark the emails as spam/junk. And, to rip you off, the scammers will need your financial and personal information.

      Never your financial or personal information to anyone in an email message.
