If you've ever been ripped off in an Internet sale, or hooked by a phishing scam, you're not alone. Americans lost more than $264 million to Internet fraud last year. Some are hoodwinked by false promises of love and romance - Others are taken in by too-good-to-be-true loans. Many buy something online – and never receive the item. Join Sheryl Harris, consumer columnist for The Plain Dealer, as she talks about internet crime and cyber swindles with local and national experts. Monday morning at 9 on The Sound of Ideas®.
