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.

Phishing Threat > FW: Comerica Bank - Your money can be in danger.

Typical phish, remember a phish can also be a link to viruses and malware, so they can serve dual danger.  If you did or do have an account at Comerica Bank (whomever they may be) and you received something like this, then you just go to your bank website directly, never click on a link.  Log in at the bank website and if there is a problem they would let you know right there.  Avoid phishing!


Oh and by the way, this is a lousy attempt at a phish, bad quality email, could you even imaging a bank sending out such garbage.
