Scam Alerts

Scam Alert

I have created a special section titled “scams” which may seem a little out of place in a business consultancy and advisory forum. It seems that scams have little to do with business advice. Yes and no. As a business consultant and advisor I spend an incredible amount of time researching various business models and practices. A lot of my research is focussed on legitimate business practice and theory, but the reality is that there are a lot of scams out there which I find interesting as well as dangerous. They are interesting from a business perspective – in how they work, how they are structured and how they are promoted and presented. They are also dangerous because they trap victims who suffer loss and pain.

Interestingly, I have been targeted by scams because I am a business owner and operator. There are various scams which are specifically targeted at business owners, so as a business owner, be careful. I have also been targeted by scams as an individual. I am not saying that scammers have set out to specifically find me, Peter Solanikow, and to try to scam me. No. I mean that as a citizen I have been contacted with the aim of extracting money out of me. I have been one of many random citizens selected for scamming and because I am a pretty smart guy, I am happy to say that those attempts have all failed. In fact, I have used these scam attempts as case studies to better understand the tricks and tactics that are used to try to extract money from victims. I will be presenting my findings in this special section which I hope will be of interest and benefit to readers here.
