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.

FREE $1,000 WalMart Gift Card FW: October Newsletter

Couple things, no one is giving out $1000 gift card no matter what.

This came with an attachemnt that could easily be a virus or trojan horse.

If there was a valid form, most likely it would be something revealing
private info to steal your identity.

Avoid these scams at all cost, could cost you your computer, your identity
and/or a lot of money
