An L.A. TIMES reporter who focuses on Internet security reveals what's happening in cyber crimes and scams. The numerous accounts of piracy and financial doom should alert Web users about what can happen to anyone who is plugged into cyberspace. With just a mouse click, the unwary can lose their money to pyramid schemes, identity theft, credit card fraud, or online gambling. Narrator Christian Rummel maintains an upbeat tone, in contrast to the depressing information he delivers. His cheery and enthusiastic attitude makes the mountain of facts more palatable. Some frustration may ensue when listeners find they must decipher and remember dozens of unfamiliar initialisms and acronyms—such as D.D.O.S. attacks, computer BOTS, I.R.C. channels, and the Russian M.V.D.
