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.

PHISH / ID Theft: Comerica Bank - Very important information for our clients.

A classic Identity Theft Phish for details and information to steal your ID, your Credit Card, your SS#, your Pin Codes or whatever else you have to offer.  Remember no valid company will every ask you to click / follow a link from an email. If for some ODD reason you believe an email to be real, you go to your browser and navigate directly to the site, you log in from there and if there is an issue you will see it at that time.  Never follow untrusted links.
