You may do EVERYTHING right and still be a victim of this frustrating and scary scam. Just listen to these people tell their stories. And keep in mind, these aren't the people who sent a dime -- yet they still pay the price.
This is the first in a new batch of stories from 9Wants to Know... especially as we geer up for the February ratings period. I've got some other interesting stories too.
However, that doesn't mean I'd pass up a great story. If you have something you think I should look into, let me know. There are lots of ways to reach me: Twitter and Facebook or e-mail.
