-- 5-star review by Literary Titan
-- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review: 'The lively format, clear photo examples and dialogues, and step-by-step investigations into what constitutes a scam and how it is fostered by methods that appear real and genuine are especially important keys to understanding the psychology, advanced techniques, and the identification and analysis of cyberfraud.
Cybercrime investigation processes often hamstring the investigator. Even Selina (a hacker) has the ability to capture criminal's information,but unlike the criminal, she is confined by laws. These laws do not allow her to hack further into the criminal's machine--not far enough to capture his detailed identity. Sadly, even if she did obtain criminal's detailed identity, the police were not likely to catch the criminal unless she could escalate the case to Interpol. And Interpol does not normally look into Internet scams due to huge amount of effort and international cooperation required (even if Interpol could catch the criminal, the actual monetary recovery is almost always zero).
I'm a Romance Scam IT Detective should be required reading for any who use the internet. The primary audience for this read will be adults, professionals, and government organizations; but computer-savvy mature new adults should be also given this book. All computer users are vulnerable--even those who deem themselves relatively computer-savvy--and this audience may be surprised to learn about the situations and scamming approaches which are described in depth in this book. '
But ... why did this computer engineer fall victim in the first place, when she was not even in love with the fraudster? Will Selina be able to save the love of her life, Jason, who is believed to be in another romance scam?
