I recently wrote an article for Expat Focus about scams our extended family can get sucked into when we don’t stay in touch as much as we should. You can read it here: http://www.expatfocus.com/c/aid=711/columnists/stephanie-angulo/expat-phone-home/
I talk about websites that have information on these scams, but wasn’t able to include the links to them. If you’d like to see what’s out there in scamville and stay up to date, here are a few great links I’ve found detailing what’s floating around!
http://www.snopes.com/ good not just for scams, but urban legends and myths too
http://www.scambusters.org/ they have TONS of info on what’s out there in the scam world and a newletter you can sign up for too!
http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/scamsandidentitytheft/ss/top10inetscams.htm a little overview about the top 10 out there now
