One of the fastest growing Internet scams on the web, besides the silly Nigerian 419 scam, is the fake escrow scam. This is where fake escrow sites are used for big ticket items to steal money or the big ticket item being bought or sold via auction.

On MSNBC today, a dentist is out $55,000 for the car he never got–and never will. He should had read MSNBC’s expose on the scam on December 17th. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
