Canadian company, Amos Studios, has announced 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.

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 the words within the scam descriptions, so if someone were to approach you – say, with a very tempting offer to earn big money working at home – the app will find not only the Work at Home scam, but all related scams.
