dot con

Definition

Electronics

  • An Internet-based fraud or swindle, such as that offering a product or service which does not exist, or that is nothing like that stated. Frequently, such schemes play on common human weaknesses, such as the desire to get rich quickly, to get something for nothing, or thinking that a given business arrangement is favorable at the expense of others.
