The Internet has brought countless benefits into our lives. However, along with
those benefits comes a dark side. Scammers. There are people who take advantage of the relative anonymity and wide availability of the Internet to trick people into giving up their hard-earned money, whether intentionally or otherwise. They try to 
harvest your personal information. They try to install nefarious software on your computer.
Don't let it happen.
While software is available to help ward off viruses and common online scams, the best tool for prevention is you. 
Here are some specific ways to spot a potential online scam. If an offer you're reading about sets off any of these warning bells, you're better off just avoiding it.
An upfront payment is required before you can get any real information. If a site won't give you a clear overview of what exactly it's trying to sell you with some real examples of what you'll be getting in exchange for your payment, don't hand over a dime. Any reputable product can be sold on its own merits, not on the claims of what that product is without showing you what's behind the smoke and mirrors.

Popups appear asking you to download a piece of software or a "video driver" when the source isn't 100 percent reputable. Never, ever, ever download software to your computer from anywhere that isn't completely reputable. If it's not the official website of a software vendor, a software store associated with your model of computer or phone, or a very very trusted third-party vendor like Amazon, don't download the software.
