Gambling systems are often promoted as business opportunities or investments. Often they promote a system to reap money from horse racing, lottery syndicates or share investment systems. Professional people, retirees and others with funds to invest are often targeted. More often than not the word gambling does not appear in the glossy brochures and promotional material. The promoters go to great lengths to portray the systems as legitimate business opportunities, even recruiting well-known personalities to help sell the systems. The promotional material promises huge returns, supposedly based on past results. But these so-called results are worthless because they are manipulated to prove a particular outcome.

Telemarketing comes in many forms: Direct approach where you are contacted by an operator, sometimes a telemarketer based overseas; Automated pre-recorded voice messages and, pop-up Internet advertisements or spam, which requires you to contact a telemarketer. (Some encourage you to respond to voice interactive premium telephone services which can charge up to $5 a minute); Automated dialing equipment which randomly dials numbers, and if you answer the phone, the telemarketer is switched through to you. (Sometimes there are not enough telemarketers to take the calls, and the calls drop out resulting in a silent call). Some telemarketers start their sales pitch with “Congratulations you have won” or ask you to participate in a survey, when in fact they are just trying to hook you in. Do not Buy Anything from them, that fact that you haven’t subscribe anything like that.
10. Investment Scams
Telemarketing, in the form of cold calling, can be used to promote scams. To attract and hold the victim’s curiosity, some scammers will pretend to be investment advisers, stockbrokers or community workers from a religious organization. The calls often come from overseas and offer you above-average returns on your money. They sometimes make an appointment for a “senior advisor” to ring you back. They generally offer share, mortgage or real estate “investments”, “high return” schemes, option trading or foreign currency trading. The scammers are persistent and play on your emotions, making you feel like a fool if you say “no” to them. Some scammers target people with specific religious or community interests, enticing them with promises to send profits to charity or worthy causes.
