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.

Before his sudden death,he have money to the tune of Twelve Million, United State Dollars.(USD$12.000.000.00) left in a Trust company which he propossed using for a foreign business transaction.The pressure from my deceased husband's family for his inheritance has made me to move out from the family house for solution.My husband deposited this money and no name was given to them as the beneficiary. They are therefore asking me as the only wife to the depositor,to forward to them the name of the Beneficiary of this deposited Trunk Box before they could release it to me.
The Mettalic Package Containing this Money, that was deposited in the Security & Delivery company here in Cote D'ivoire was Registered as Rafi's Valuables.
This means that the company does not know that the content of this Package, that was deposited in their custody is money.I am therefore,presently seeking for assistance in this purpose.I am interested to invest this fund with your company in your country . kindly forward all your companys activities to me for immediate decission on the investment program,before I will make your name available to the security Company as my late husband's partner/Beneficiary who is to recieve the Rafi's Valuables.
