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.

Royal PITA Scammers = Green Tree (Warehousing) Ltd.
They even have a bogus website that makes them seem legit. It is scams like this that is most dangerous as they make it seem real, authentic and most scary... profitable.
They can easily trap people because of their website, the fact they talk about business meetings, advancement, management positions and more "biz" concepts. Their website is of fair quality and can easily confuse people into being ripped off.
Their website has changed domain names / urls about 4 times in the last two months because their hosts keep shutting them down, for now they are at greentwld.net. Please feel free to view their garbage while they are still online, but please do not fall for this complete scam / rip off.
Their domains move so fast it is hard to find out who is behind these sites, the whois is only showing reserved for now... but by the time you read this, more info may be available.
Their scam is common, you receive a payment, deposit it, wire the money less your commission and then you wait for your bank to tell you the checks / payments are fake.
You will be on the hook for 100% of the payment to your bank which could easily be in the 10's of thousands.
