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.

JAMES GAVIN & ASSOCIATES - Nigerian Scam - Inheritance

Why a fake

  1. Someone you don't know, never heard of, lives overseas leaves you millions of dollars for no reason.
  2. Email sent to "Undisclosed Recipients"
  3. Sender said they tried to contact you via direct mail, but they don't know your name, address, phone or any info.
  4. Email comes from Michael Pinder, but wants you to reply to James Gavin
  5. Huge attorney firm wants you to reply to a hotmail account "" and not the company's actual email.
  6. Email actually comes from
Typical email money scam either phising for detailed info like bank info, or will send a check and want funds wired or you must pay fees upfront before receiving a check.
