I’m a Certified Forensic Computer Examiner in Memphis Tn, and I’ve been conducting forensic examinations since August 2000.  I also spent 3 years attached to an online fraud unit and saw all kinds of happenings.  I thought I’d use this space to discuss computer forensics, electronic discovery, and online fraud.

Online fraud posts will (hopefully) be on a specific topic, with examples, and helpful tips on how not to get scammed, but here are the best tips for starters:

  • No-one is going to give you money for free.
  • Never send money to a person you haven’t met in a country you’ve never visited.
  • If it looks too good to be true…..
  • Get antivirus and firewall software.  They won’t protect you against everything, but it’s the internet’s equivalent of wearing a seatbelt.
