Most people have received a scam e-mail in their inbox at one point in time or another but just how good are you at detecting the real scams from genuine e-mails and websites?

McAfee Inc.'s SiteAdvisor service has created a simple online test to see if you can spot the difference between a genuine website and a fake.

At the end of the quiz, you will be given your results along with a guide to help you better identify any questions that you may have answered wrong.

Just make sure you check out the available larger images or you might just get fooled on a couple of them like I did.

Are you an expert scam detector or did you miss a couple of the questions? Go ahead and make fun of my non-perfect score in the comments below or over in the forums.
