This book goes over 3 or 4 scams that the author himself has suffered. He gives details of how he was approached, what hooked him, why he kept pursuing the proffered reward, and how he finally realized it was a scam when it was too late. It’s great that the author is so candid about scams he has been taken on as many folks feel embarrassed when they are scammed and won’t talk about it, let alone get authorities involved.
Initially, he expresses some sympathy for scammers since, according to him, they only get to keep 10% of what they scam out of others. He also says that most scammers reside in Scandinavia or Nigeria. He doesn’t cite references detailing where he got these ‘facts’.
He goes on to give info on other types of scams, such as mail order brides that never seem able to make it over to the US. Then things get a bit rambly. He leaps from one conspiracy theory to another, giving a little supporting info but not enough to hold up his statements. There’s Big Pharma, immunizations, the federal reserve, social security, aliens, etc.. This rambly last third of the book really takes away from the info provided in the first two-thirds.
Narration: Eddie Leonard Jr. did a decent job. He managed to put a bit of emotion into the author’s words where needed. He sounded interested in the book the entire way through. I give him extra credit for keeping any incredulity he might have felt over references to friendly aliens contacting world leaders out of his voice.
