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.

SCAM > Mr. Walter Suarez; I work with the Federal Ministry in Spain

Wow, what a crock..  I am always amazed when someone falls for this scam.  How can someone contact you "To: undisclosed recipients:" and offer to transfer millions of dollars to you, and you don't know them personally.  The logic is totally baffling, yet people do fall for these scams.
