*** Thank you very much for the amazing feedback and for downloading our app, especially after all the TV coverage!

Scam Detector is a free app that exposes in detail over 650 of the most notorious scams in the world. Learn how they work and protect yourself.

This app is produced by the creators of the internationally acclaimed film "419: The Nigerian Scam" and is now an official partner of the Better Business Bureau. Scam Detector is also the recipient the 2012 Consumer Champions Award, given every year by the Government of Alberta, Canada.

The scams in this app are grouped into 9 categories, depending on the industry:

* Auto Scams
* Social Networking Scams
* Financial Scams
* Employment Scams
* House/ Property Scams
* Online Auction Scams
* Telephone Scams
* Travel Scams
* Face to face Scams

The app features real-time content updates. You can also use the Search feature to look up anything you think might be a fraudulent circumstance. For example, if you are going on vacation to Thailand and want to know what to expect there, just type in the name of your destination and all relevant scams will appear.

The Search feature is optimized to find the words within the scam descriptions, so if someone were to approach you - say, with a very tempting offer to earn big money working at home – the app will find not only the Work at Home scam, but all related scams.

*** Last but not least, please be patient while the scams are loading as soon as you open the app. It usually takes less than a minute.

Nagaraj. T.

Vijay Kuri

Good app This is really good one and informative.

Naresh Sevani

Good but bloated Good app. Self explanatory what app is for. But 23mb (11mb app + 12mb initial data download on first launch) size is inexcusable for an app which main purpose is only information. Update: Very buggy app. Every time I launch it I get the message "An application restart is required". It then restarts and works fine. Some display issues also exist. Downgrading rating from 3 stars to 2 stars.

steve mathews

Poor Buggy and unstable.

Won't work constantly restarts and won't finish downloading the scams. Galaxy Note, uninstalling.

George Young

App crashes far too often Most of the scams listed are avoidable with a little common sense. Cant keep the app open long enough to read more than one per launch. Really irritating.

Excellent app There are so many scams in here, so much to learn. Thank you for making this! I have a summer vacation coming up and I plan to bring this with me to protect me from being scammed.

A Google User

Great job I have always wanted to create a place for people to reference for known scam schemes, and report new ones as they come up. This app fills those needs quite well. This is a great never ending battle. We need to be better educated and rational about our information and our wallets, if we ever want to make it difficult for those who find it too easy to rip us off.

A Google User

Sasha Ramsey

Interesting!!! This app definitely gives an insight to frauds and scams. It was a little frustrating to get the app to load on my phone but definitely was worth it. I definitely recommend this for people!

Robert Budd

Force-closes I'm sure this would be a useful app. Unfortunately I can't get beyond the initial splash page before everything goes black.

P. Long

?Too Large for Mobile-Users? Developer needs to bring out a "Lite"version of this app for "Mobile-users"? As the "File Size" is too large and takes ages to download ?("Android.ICS.ver.4)

A Google User

Good info It provides good information, but the opening screen a little. Overall worth it though!

Charlie Harris

Terrible app Every time i open this it crashes. It worked once or twice and seem to have good information.

A Google User

Great idea! What a breadth of information you have made available. Anissa

A Google User

Useless Neat idea but kind of useless unless you have hours to read and worry about how people can screw you.

A Google User

Great design and info on scams! This app has a great design and layout. Everything fits on the screen on my android phone and the info on these scams is extensive. We all know basic scams but this shows you other scams that you might not of heard of yet.

A Google User

Scam Encyclopedia This sure is one hell of an app. I specially liked the online scams quite informative. Since, I myself an much of a tech-savvy person and use Craiglist and ebay on a regular basis, the info provided by the app will help me stay on the safer side.

A Google User

Force closes Worked great the first time and after that every time it is not opening
