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.

Man charged with identity theft

HALIFAX - A complaint of identity fraud has resulted in the arrest of a Roanoke Rapids man, according to the Halifax County Sheriff's Office.

Detective Gene Harris said on Feb. 11, a report was filed saying William Tyrone Biggs Jr. used a credit/debit card to make several purchases and to withdraw cash from an ATM machine.

Investigation shows Biggs used the card without consent, Harris said. He turned himself in and was released on a $15,000 bond and has a March 19 court date.
