    How Do People Sleep At Night!

    Been on this site for a while now and have seen my fair share of scammers personally if i scammed someone on here or anywhere for that matter id probably go insane with the guilt. Is money everything?

    When you're unemployed and get naff all, money is everything. Also, do not most people who go to work, whether it is minimum wage or £50 million a year, merely do it for the money? I do have some ethics though and theft/scamming is not something I would do. I suppose the people who do it justify it by thinking if the victim has money to spare then it's theirs for the taking, they are more deserving of the money to top up their benefits, thinking the victim is probably rolling in cash and so on. They probably also laugh at those scammed thinking they're stupid they fell for it and so on.

    Money is everything, greed is eternal etc etc. After all, money buys Subaru Imprezzas for people with the name Danny.

    I agree with the fact that scamming is bad but some people deserve to be scammed because they make it soooo easy.

    I purchased a phone off ebay for £350, the seller left all personal information on it including facebook logged in and all telephone numbers etc. Worst of all it was sent unrecorded. Can't say i wasn't tempted

    That statement is a bit crass isn't it. If you were to push it to it's limit that would mean that some people deserve to get raped/murdered! (_;)

    That vile, horrible Jordan is really getting on my wick.... I know that!

    Their probably 16 year olds desperate for cash

    16 year olds are more likely to nick your car. Scams, fraud etc are commited more by our foreign associates that our let into this country with open arms every day.

    I don't know about that dc. The biggest fraud of 'recent' years was committed by Nick Leeson, and he's a British national.

    People are greedy and jealous of other's.

    A doctor tried to scam me on eBay a few months back
    Claimed the box was empty.
    Soon changed his mind when I found his work email and where he worked.

    Some people have no morals and wouldn't think twice about scamming ya.

    Where would I go to find statistics correlating online fraud and race?

    youve just gotta have your wits about you these days.
    via the internet it is so so easy.
    on here the amount of people who fall for these ipod scams its unreal.
    Also people who dont get the personal info about the person they are dealing with (Yes i know it may be fake), but there is always a way around this.

    "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"

    Coffeemaker I do not see how dc7911 is racist at all.
    His is merely stating his opinion.

    Where did i say specificly online fraud ?

    dcx_badass

    Because they are scum, lazy and most likely poor.



    They might not be financially well off at first but I bet they are when they finish.

    What part of 'scams, fraud etc are commited more by our foreign associates that our let into this country with open arms every day' is not racist?!' It might be his opinion and that's fine, everyone is entitled to one, but by definition it is a racist one.

    I think you will find my comments were pointed towards certain ethnic groups not race . Its far too easy to brand someones comments Racist especially when you obviously dont understand it.

    Whats the difference? You are implying that certain ethnic groups commit fraud. You are attributing a negative trait to a group of people based on their ethnicity. Is that not racist?

    It is the same principle of how the nazi's implied certain traits in jewish people - I am not comparing the two, but the line of thought is exactly the same.

    Agreed - but where is this 'statistic?' If his arguement us backed up by imeprical data then fine but I would be genuinely shocked if it is

    These are official Home Office Findings.

    It has long been known that immigration has led to higher levels of crime, but the mass media and old political parties have always been reluctant to confront the facts head on. However, a study of recent government documents can now enable a quantitative analysis on the levels of ethnic crime in Britain today. Statistics on Race and the Criminal Justice System is published by the Home Office. The latest edition provides extensive information on the ethnic groups of persons arrested for a variety of serious crimes for each major police force area in England and Wales. With the data provided it is then possible to compare rates of crime between different ethnic groups.

    Robbery (which includes mugging) is committed by blacks at a rate of nearly 23 times that for whites, with fraud and forgery 8.5 times higher. Sex and drug offences are committed by blacks at about 5.7 times the white rate. Asians commit fraud and forgery at 3.4 times the white rate with robbery at 2.4 times, while levels of sexual and drug offences are about twice that for whites.

    In contrast, Asians commit fewer burglary and criminal damage offences than whites. On average, blacks commit offences at a rate 580 percent greater than whites while Asians have a 75 percent higher rate. "Other" ethnic groups are only slightly more likely to commit criminal offences than whites. With the rates of criminal activity known for each ethnic group it is possible to calculate the excess number of offences committed by ethnic
    s in Britain, by comparing the number of offences committed by Britain's ethnic population with a hypothetical white population of equal size. Any difference in crime levels between the white and ethnic populations is therefore a direct consequence of Britain's multiracial society. In a homogenous, white Britain these "excess" crimes would simply not exist.

    An excess of ethnic crime is committed in every offence. Statistics on Race and the Criminal Justice System also covers data regarding the number of racially motivated incidents in England and Wales . The data has been adjusted to account for certain group's reluctance to report such incidents to the authorities. Of the 280,000 racially motivated incidents, 182,000 (65 percent) were committed against White people. This means that 7 percent of the population (ethnic minorities) were responsible for 65 percent of all racially motivated incidents, making them nearly 26 times more likely to commit such an offence than a white person.

    I agree with this,
    Also the rules are there to protect you both, stick to them and use some common sense and most times it works out ok.

    I genuinely cant get over people who sell fake electrical goods.....they could kill people for goodness sake! Sorry to rant lol.

    Taken from here hardly an official report as it's on a white nationalist site.

    Here's some figures for you that originate from an official source
    Seems the figures are what would be expected percentage wise the majority of the crimes are commited by the main population of the area.
