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.

My Dear Friend,

I am happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred
under the co-operation of a new partner from United Kingdom. Although you might
find it difficult to remember me, since it has indeed been quite a long time.

However, I am much elated and privileged to contact you again after this long
time. While it takes faith and courage to remember old friends and at the same
time, to show gratitude to them in-spite of circumstances that may have
disrupted our transaction ultimately not to work out as we projected.

Nevertheless, I take this liberty to inform you that the transaction we were
pursuing then together, finally worked out by the infinite mercy of GOD Almighty
and I've decided to contact you, just to let you know the present situation.

I must inform you also that I am presently in United Kingdom for business
negotiations and establishment and with a sincere heart, I have raised and
signed an International Cashier's Bank Draft, to the tune of $850,000usd in your
name as Compensation for your dedication and humane contribution as it were. I
will be very busy here at the moment because of the investment projects that me
and my new partners are having at hand.

The bank draft is under Mr.Donald Bruce so not also accept any fax or telephone
calls that do not come from him He is the only person I instructed and directed
on how to deliver the draft to you.

Therefore, I implore you to contact him immediately you read this message for
further information on how to receive your draft, for I have conscience as a
human being, and I really appreciated your tremendous effort and contribution
made to make things work out but which we couldn't complete due to circumstances
beyond our control.

In view of this, you are to contact Mr.Donald Bruce and below is his contact.

Apex Security Finanace & Security House
Contact person: Mr.Donald Bruce

Note: He is waiting to hear from you so that he can ship the ICBD to your
residence/office address as you may instruct him where to send it to with your
full detailed informations as regards delivery.
