Scambusters, Preventing Internet Scams & Phishing Attempts

This blog is dedicated to help preventing internet fraud and internet scams. Scambusters was a radio show I started in Albany Oregon, but due to defaulted payment by the radio station we took the show offline. Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters. Please watch this blog for latest tips and tricks and scams to avoid.

How ridiculous, our payment is processed, but they have no clue to who we are? Why would anyone need this information at anytime to process a payment.  Your age?  Sorry we give less money to younger people?  A horrible attempt at a scam.  Yet, I am sure that someone will still fall for it, hopefully not you!
