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.

PHISH: craigslist.org Request to Reset Account

Phishing email for Craigslist, they're trying to redirect you to a site in Romania at accwontscraigslist(DOT)go(DOT)ro/login/
Although the link below looks real, always, if you feel the email is real, go to your browser, go to the real website and log in from there to see if there are any messages.  No site would send this kind of email, it will always be fake.
