Overview

What would you do if you were accused and arrested for a crime that you didn't commit? How about if you realized that you'd just been scammed for thousands of dollars? What about if, due to a circumstance as unavoidable as having the same name as a criminal, your credit rating kept you from buying a house or a car, or getting a loan for college? Most people trust that everything will work out and assume that the government will help them if trouble arises. However, Robert Massi reveals what the government doesn't want you to know—daily life and decisions are fraught with potential danger, and government mismanagement often has disastrous consequences for innocent, law-abiding citizens.

Familiar to viewers as a national TV legal analyst, Robert Massi has heard countless stories of well-intentioned individuals getting caught up in damaging situations that they didn't see coming. Nonetheless, the most frustrating part of these heartaches is that they could—and should—have been avoided.

Massi will share some of these astonishing stories of real people—and then he'll show you how to learn from these mishaps. Touching on everything from dodging identity theft to starting a business, People Get Screwed All the Time explains how to avoid falling for scams, getting entrenched in endless legal battles, and inadvertently ending up on the wrong side of the law. Also, if worse comes to worst, it provides unbeatable tips for how to extract yourself from a wide variety of sticky situations.

By suggesting small steps that can be taken today, People Get Screwed All the Time helps you to avert catastrophe tomorrow. Calling for action and awareness, this is a vital and eye-opening handbook that proves that ignorance is anything but bliss.

    People Get Screwed All the Time: Protecting Yourself From Scams, Fraud, Identity Theft, Fine Print, and More

    As a woman who was once the subject of mistaken identity, I can tell you it was a terrifying experience. I made all the same mistakes Bob mentions in his book. As they say, I wish I knew then, what I know now...Would have saved me a LOT of heartache.

    I never expect much from lawyers, but this book was truly INFORMATIVE and helpful. It included info on Identity theft, HOAs (which are almost always trouble) and what Bob Massi would have done as a lawyer had he been handling the case. A very easy read. Two thumbs up!

    A reviewer

    There are so many aspects that Massi touches on that makes this a must read for any adult living and working in the 21st century. It's hard to believe he was learning disabled and dyslexic like me but still made good. Good for you Bob Massi and thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    Just blew me away!

    Robert Massi has made a breakthough with his book 'People Get Screwed All the Time'. I met Robert at his book signing in Las Vegas, Nevada not only was he courteous but was willing to talk and discuss with every customer. I have started reading his book and am amazed by all of the kinds of ways people actually do get screwed from identity fraud to any type of scam you can imagine, and the greatest part is he explains in detail how to prevent them all from happening. This is just a book you have to read, you will be amazed and enthralled while reading it from cover to cover, in fact I think I'm going to finish the rest of the book now!
