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.

This is not a SCAM, not be the true sense of the word, but it is certainly a violation of eBay Terms and beyond that a Royal PITA. It is very important if you get these bogus emails and/or legit ones spamming you through eBay to report the senders to eBay as and make sure you include all mail headers.
