Internet scams - Digital forensics analyst is not a magician

It is quite worrying to read the news about internet scam cases. Nowadays, a lot of people become victims even though the government has alerted them through media advisories and what not.

At first they never thought of being conned until something amiss happened. Then they will chase the police to solve their case and eagerly wanting their money back.

Sorry, it is not that easy…ok. There is so much work to do in the cyber world investigation and I have to say this…digital forensics analyst is not a magician.

So people, please be cautious...don't be greedy and follow your lust. And to those who are aware on this issue…advice your family members because the internet scams look so professional. It helps!
