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.

From Miss Sandra Alex - Nigerian Scam
From Miss Sandra Alex
Avenue 16 Rue 13
I am pleased to write you this mail,I am Miss Sandra Alex, 22 years old and the only daugther of my late parents of Mr and Mrs Alex williams. My late father was a highly reputable business merchant in a cocoa who operated in the capital of Ivory Coast during his days.
Unfortunately I loosed him mysteriously,He died in France during one of his business trips abroad last year octomber 2006. though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle , who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth.
My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my late father took me so special. Before his death on Octomber 9th/2006 he called the secretary who accompanied him in hospital and told him to call me,on my arrival to the hospital my father told me that he deposited the sum of six million US Dollars. (6 000,000 USD) left in suspense account in one of the leading bank in Africa.
He further told me that he deposited the money in his name,and I as the next of kin and finally issued a written instruction to his lawyer whom he said is in possession of all the necessary legal document to all his properties.
I am just 22 years old and a University undergraduate and really dont know what to do. Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds.
This is because I have suffered a lot of set back as a result of family enemity and incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.
Please, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.
Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few question:
1.Can you honestly help me as your new family?
2.Can I completely trust you?
3.what percentage of the total amount in question
will be good for you after the money is in your account?
Please, am waiting for your reply
Thank you so much.
Miss Sandra Alex
