Cybercrooks rake in millions from these top 5 online scams

The FBI said this familiar scam has resurfaced in which a victim receives spam or pop-up messages offering free astrological readings. The victim must provide his/her birth date and birth location to receive a free reading.

After receiving the reading, the victim is enticed to purchase a full reading with the promise that something favorable is about to happen. The victim pays for the full reading but never receives it, and most attempts to contact the "Professional Astrologer," via email, return as undeliverable, the FBI said.


Did ProfWag get his free reading?
