The Real Hustle

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

The BBC 3 program “The Real Hustle” is an excelent presentation of just how easy you could be scammed out of your money or confidential information.
The three presenters have real experience scamming and now they are showing their skills on television so that you can avoid being conned.

One of my favourites is the WiFi scam and it is one that is often targeted at the business traveller. It works best in a business hotel or at an airport.

The next time you connect to a WiFi network in a hotel or cafe think of this video clip and don’t type in your credit card number or company passwords.
