New iPhone App Exposes Over 350 of the Most Popular Scams in the World(June 15, 2011)
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) June 15, 2011
Canadian company, Amos Studios, announces the launch of Scam Detector. The new iPhone application reveals in detail over 350 of the most common scams in the world.
The scams are separated into nine categories: auto, face to face, telephone, travel, and internet, which is broken down into five areas: social networking, financial, employment, housing, and online auctions.
People need to be aware there are others out there, who given the opportunity, will not hesitate to victimize them, says the applications developer, Sorin Mihailovici. This has been made easier through advancements in technology, as crooks are finding new ways to ply their trade around the world. It took almost a year to re¬search the content and it is now at the point where I am confident Scam Detector can save people from becom¬ing victims. The Pro version of Scam Detector provides ongoing protection with free updates.
While users can easily navigate the menus learning about scams, they can also launch a search to see if they are about to be victimized. The search feature is optimized to find words within the scam descriptions. So if some¬one is approached by a con artist, who has a proposal that seems too good to be true, saying for instance, you can earn more money working at home. All the user of the app has to do is input a keyword or two fitting the situation and it will find the Work at Home scam, and all related scams.
Scam Detector for iPhone (@ScamDetector on Twitter) is available for $1.99US. It is priced accordingly in other regions. The Lite version of the app is free, but lists fewer scams. Scam Detector versions for iPad and Android platforms are in the works and will be available soon.
A video presentation of the app along with high quality screenshots can be seen at http://www.scam-detector.com, the official website. A media kit is also available on the newsroom page.
Amos Studios, a multi-media company based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, was formed in 2009 by Sorin Mihailovici for the purpose of creating smartphone apps, videos, and commercials.
