IT is sad that the world we live in, means that people who are trusting are leaving themselves open to being scammed.
Once again this week’s paper has a number of stories on fraud and forgery – from mayors to car salesmen.
And with the existence of an actual ‘fraud school’ dedicated to teaching people how to scam others, the odds really are against us.
There is at least some good news that police are taking seriously the case of expat Rodney Quinn and the Land Rover concession that asked him to sign a blank document.
It merely serves as a reminder that you must always read the small print and double check everything before signing… in particular that there is ink on the page!
And if in any doubt, get hold of a good lawyer to help you.
