Scamming – or “advance fee fraud” – is another form of social engineering. Here, for example, the fraudster tries to convince his victims that they can earn a fortune if they make an advance payment. Once they have done this, the fraudster usually breaks off the contact directly – of course always without providing the their part of the deal – a job, money or goods.
