The government has issued warnings about new scams involving claims of Patriot Act violations, WikiLeaks threats, faked resumes, and “too good to be true” tax evasion schemes. NetworkWorld cautions against such scams, including one involving a woman who received an automated message “telling her that her computer and IP address had been noted as having visited the WikiLeaks site, and that there were grave consequences for this, including a $250,000 or $25,000 fine, perhaps imprisonment. Then the consumer is presented with options to pay the fine.”
