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.

original return path

Badly written, using sentances like "Don?t let themknow that box contents money okay." is a dead giveaway even if you don't have a clue about scams this should shout FRAUD to anyone getting the email.

Just avoid


Good day!!!

We have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of £18 Million (Eighteen Million Pounds sterling) but I did not hear from you since for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and World Bank told us that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire.

So we told him to cash the £18 Million (Eighteen Million Pounds sterling) to cash payment to avoid losing this fund under expiration as we will be out of the country.

What you have to do now is to contact FED EX COURIER SERVICES as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your cheque to you because of the expiring date.You can contact FED EX COURIER SERVICES if the funds belong to you.

Controller: Mrs.Mary Williams
Email Address:
Phone No: +447024080684
Contact Address:99 Gresham Street London EC2V 7NG.

Finally make sure that you send your contact address,phone number and country so that your funds can be delivered to you as soon as possible.

Let me repeat again try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay.

Don?t let themknow that box contents money okay.

Thanks as you contact them today.

Yours Faithfully

Mrs Mary Williams
