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.

Amelia Dacu Friendship Scam

Blah… blah.. I am young, pretty and lonely and will love you forever if you send me money to get me out of my country, etc… etc.. or I may need an operation before I come to you and give you the love life of your dreams.  Are people still falling for this scam? I know people are lonely but please.
