Scared of Scams? Get the Scam Detector App!

Scam Detector iPhone App

From the creators of the internationally acclaimed film 419: The Nigerian Scam comes a new iPhone app to protect yourself from hundreds of scams around the globe!

Scam Detector lets you browse by category or search for anything you think may be a fraudulent circumstance. (Watch the video below!)

The 9 categories include Auto, Face to Face, Internet, Social Networking, Financial, Employment, House/Property, Online Auction, Telephone, and Travel. Over 350 of the most popular scams are described in detail and all include advice on how to steer clear of them.

The Search feature finds words within the scam descriptions, so if someone were to approach you with an offer to earn big money working at home, the app will find not only the Work at Home scam, but all related scams.

New scams are added periodically. Here are latest ones: Forced warranty, Bank machine keypad, Valet parking, Dating online: Student, Tax refund email, Mystery shopper, Loan modification, Pet found reward, and Hotel receptionist call.

Currently the app is only available for iPhones, but Android and iPad versions are in the works.
