Ian Leaf— Fraudster Patrol Online

Published by:

Watching for fraudster activity is like sitting in your yard watching the grass grow—things are happening, but you just can’t see it happening. When you’re an online watch for scams and fraud, even with tax, you have to remain patient and not allow yourself to be distracted. Ian Leaf has been the master of fraudster work due to his days as a major force to be reckoned with by fraudsters and scammers alike. Mr. Leaf has said to have spent the past 10 years studying fraudster activity and another 5 to 10 years fighting against it by warning others and making them aware.

“The guy is a genius I’d say,” said Tim Rodgers, online crime watcher and partner of Ian Leaf, fraudster detective, “I truly feel sorry for the guys that aren’t on his side. They are the ones he’s after.” Although Ian Leaf doesn’t guarantee the capture of fraudsters, he does guarantee the malicious plans of evil fraudsters have will be exploited and released to the public to make themselves more aware of what is going on day by day even though they cannot see it.

Dealing with the public is no easy task and matter. You have countless hundreds of thousands of people who are depending on you to come through with solid proof, evidence and with a fix to their problem. The only problem is that doing to kind of work takes time to make well sure the right person has been found out for fraud and there are no accidents and ruining of an innocent person’s reputation.

Ian Andrews Fraudster Staying Safe Online

Staying safe online is common sense, right? Everyone wants security, especially when using the Internet. The reason why is because being unprotected while surfing online can be an absolute disaster and all it takes is just one scam, one fraud or one hacker to ruin your life forever. From 2013-2014, fraud crimes online spiked to about 10% (that’s a huge increase!) and online users as well as merchants had to come up with new ways to protect against fraud and even spam.

Today, I’m going to give you a few basic key tips to help you ensure you are safe and sound from the fraudsters. To begin with, we know e-mail comes and goes from computers and networks all over the world. These e-mails could possibly contain malicious files, even in the images, that are programmed to attach to your device, no matter if it is a personal computer or phone or tablet, and send the owner of the malicious software information about their prey! You should also be cautious when it comes to e-mail because you never know what is inside until you open it. If you suspect you may have opened a hazardous e-mail, delete it as soon as possible, scan your device with any detection software (I’d recommend Kapersky) and change your e-mail password using the on-screen keyboard application if using a computer just in case you may be bugged with a keylogger.

A fraudster who knows what they’re doing can gain access to any of your e-mail accounts and once they are in, who knows what kind of damage they could do? At that moment, you are completely at their mercy. They could set up accounts on sites to ruin your reputation and make you look bad, they could pretend to be you, and gain access to your bank if they hit the right e-mail account.

If you want to avoid this type of disaster, you should use a diff
erent password for every one of your e-mail accounts. The password should contain at least 9 characters with a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and keyboard symbols. Let’s say your name is Bob Wright. Your birthday is September 15, 1983 and your wife’s name is Tina Wright. A good password using that information would look like this: Bw091583_Tw
