Cheating

 

Cheating has become a very common activity in our modern society. Many people indulge in this practice to make a quick buck without too much effort.

There are many instances where innocent people have been made to part with their money by confidence tricksters selling "magic stones" and charms that will bring prosperity to the users. After paying exorbitant sums for these fake articles, the gullible buyers ultimately realize that they have paid hard-earned money for worthless pieces of junk.

Then, there are the big-time crooks. These people set up huge counterfeiting operations to produce imitation goods. Branded clothes, handbags, belts and other accessories are copied closely and produced at a fraction of the genuine articles' cost and sold as originals. Even toiletries and over-the-counter medicine and are being unscrupulously imitated.

Lately, there has been a rise in the manufacturing and selling of pirated compact discs. All forms of CD's are being pirated: audio CD's, video CD's and computer software. CD piracy has become such a big business that both the entertainment and information technology industries are alarmed at this trend that cuts deeply into the profits of the legitimate copyright holders.

It seems impossible to stop all these cheating activity. The authorities are doing their best to curb such practices but we must also do our part. We should not let greed or superstition make us victims of confidence tricksters, never patronize dealers of ill repute that sell imitation goods as originals and keep away from touts and pedlars that hawk pirated compact discs.
