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.

Physician and Philanthropists Mr. George Brumley internet email scam

Although the link to the tragedy is real, the email of course is a scam. We are sorry for the family's loss, and even more sorry someone will take advantage of such a loss. The scam will be simple, in order to get your inheritence, you will have to pay a fee of some kind, be it a tax, or processing fee or attorney fee. This fee of course will need to be wired somewhere, and wherever it is, it is not coming back.

The Scam makes no sense as why would someone you don't know leave you money? Why would a Solicitor (attorney) email you and not call? Why don't they even know your name? You are in the will, but no name? Makes no sense, but I am still worried someone will fall for this scam.

The email comes from ahmadijafa@sbcglobal.net but they want you reply to solicitors1006@sify.com. Would you not think an attorney firm would have their own email account / domain? Just silly at best.

Hope no one falls for it!
