At Moneywise we regularly receive letters, calls, emails and tweets from concerned readers who think they might have been scammed.
Although we might pride ourselves on our ability to smell a rat a mile off, swindlers aren't stupid; they make their operations look as plausible as possible so we need to be on our guard.
