Scam Tip Off Statistics

Analysis of the Scam Tip Off reports shows that the 'Advance Fee Fraud' (aka. Nigerian) scam is the top reported scam followed closely by 'Classified Ads' (Craigslist and other local websites), makingup the vast majority of scam solicitations worldwide.

Spam promoted email scams make up the majority though, with the various Lottery and Nigerian-type scams.

Job scams and Dating scams are still very common. Note that a lot of scams tend to be a mixture of these so clear classification is difficult.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
