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.

Lottery Scam - Subject: CAMELOT PROMOTIONAL COMPETITION

Please..... Lottery Scams, still, can't come up with something new?   Also being sent through a alasu.edu address, asking to reply to a hotmail address.  The verbage is just garbage.  Everyone now knows how these scams work.  You don't get your money until you wire money to them for a fee, for taxes, for processing, for something and then they disappear.

Anonymous said... Marie Elizabeth Register's son Michael Lee Wells is a well known narcissist sociopath! Many have been scammed by the renowned Michael Lee Wells of Goldsboro North Carolina formally from Rose Hill North Carolina, Dudley North Carolina, and Georgia and claims to residency in Germany. Michael Lee Wells ongoing claims to fame to include, Police and/or Law Enforcement Officer, Army and/or Military Officer, Wealthy Internet Businessman, owner and CEO, College Graduate with multiple degrees, Secret Agent with high level security clearances. Alleged possible associations’ with domestic and foreign fraudulent internet activity scams. Previous and current internet associations, FRandT, FR&T, frandt, MLW & Associates, MLW & Associates, LLP, Goldsboro Web Designs, Goldsboro Web Development Group, VRAUL / vraul, mytekweb, Home of Michael Lee Wells and many more. Most names posted as associates on his web pages are fictitious with the exception of Kimberly Colleen Wells, his wife. Michael Lee Well's mother Marie Elizabeth Register, aka Marie Elizabeth Register Wells was recently incarcerated within the Cumberland County, North Carolina detention center for alleged internet fraudulent activities, bond set at 77 thousand US dollars. Michael Lee Wells mother allegedly committed a $500,000.00 dollars internet scheme that the US Secret Service, FBI and Fayetteville Police Department and /or Agencies respectfully intervened and made appropriate arrest according to local and federal statutes. This can be review via the following links to WRAL and the newsobserver.com reporting agencies. Michael Lee Wells of Goldsboro said his mother met a man via computer and began an online relationship. He said she has had a tough time recently, going through a divorce and losing her mother. Investigators said they believe Marie Elizabeth Register, who works in the lending business, was a willing accomplice in the scam and other suspects have not been excluded. She ordered items online and had them shipped to a fake address in Fayetteville, they said. Police have found 2,630 checks so far that they have linked to the scam, with a total value of $7.1 million. They are still trying to determine whether the scam has ties to terrorist activity.

Mr Wells has also seen fit to attack the BSA Facebook page, attacks on the Boy Scouts, gays, and has found him banned on a website for racist rants; false claims that he was a Vet. Mr Wells is just an all around trash... oh recently he deleted from his fb page. shoot to kill orders for board crossers; that he supposedly sent to his Congress man.

Records search in Green County, NC shows Marie Register was acquitted.

I've tried vetting a few other claims here and finding them mainly false except this Marie Register seems to have been charged and acquitted of check fraud.

Everything else doesn't seem to provide any fair evidence of the claims.

I'm also curious to what is going on here. Methinks someone is cyber stalking this Michael Wells and Marie Register. I'm an attorney, I hope they call me.

@Travis -- How many fallacies can you commit in a single paragraph? The genetic fallacy, ad hominem, tu quoque, burden of proof, false cause, and ambiguities? How does one accomplish such a feat?
