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.

CAPITAL ONE Bank Fraud / Scam / Phish

Scam link actually takes you to a fake Capitol One page on website. The website contains both phishing requests as well as malware, so a dangerous site (actual sub directories / links removed for safety).

The email is just badly formed, bad info, not even a good attempt, but still dangerous.



A critical update is available to remove unacceptable symbols from the wire submission page that is included with Capital One Bank Treasury Optimizer.

Critical Updates are intended to fix potential security risks in Business Objects Capital One Bank products.

These updates are highly recommended to ensure the security of Capital One Bank products.
