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.

We have covered international Lottery scams on many occasions, this is no different, there are no international lotteries, there are no drawing, there are no anon winners, this is 100% fraud and you will be asked to either send the taxes in advance or cash a check and wire the taxes, either way you will lose money out of your account.
