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.

Pair in court over eBay fraud case

Two people from Farnworth appeared before Bolton Magistrates yesterday, charged with conspiracy to commit fraud.

Jason Hart, aged 32, of Moorside Avenue, and Louise Gregory, aged 26, of Victoria Street, are alleged to have together committed fraud by advertising goods on the internet auction site eBay without having the items to sell.

The charges relate to a period between August 28, 2006, and March, 2007.

Hart was remanded in custody. Co-accused Gregory was released on bail, on condition that she surrendered her passport and have no contact, direct or indirect, with Hart.

Both will reappear before Bolton Magistrates on May 2.
