International Financial Scams

The U.S. Department of State developed a brochure which addresses the growing number of financial scams that are targeting American citizens and which originate overseas. The material assembled by the U.S. Department of State includes descriptions of many of the popular scams targeting Americans such as Internet Dating, Long-Lost Inheritance, Work Permits, Overpayment Refunds and Money Laundering. The brochure includes photographs typically used in many of these scams on the Internet along with photographs of documents, emails, and other material related to the scams.
