Review: Ian Leaf's Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams

Fraud has always been a four-letter word . . . and for good reason. No one likes being deceived. But with the reality of social media, it becomes ever more difficult to detect fraud and scams.

   In Fraud, Fraudsters and Scams, author Ian Leaf takes you through some examples of fraud that he has encountered on Amazon. Which I found to be rather confusing, because the subtitle of the book is What to Watch for on Instagram. I have always believed that it is in good practice to stick to the subject matter. I understand what Leaf was doing there, but it would have been much stronger with Instagram material.
   The steps provided in this 38-page book are simple and direct, but do not expect to become an expert in detecting fraud. The steps are basic and good for social media beginners.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge, and received compensation, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
