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: Attention: Beneficiary (ATM Visa Card)

Scam of course, but really not even good…


1.       Sent to undisclosed, so they don’t know who they “accredited” the money to…  so everyone gets 6.8 Million?

2.       Sent from AT&T and wants you to reply to a account?

3.       The senders name is Mr. Good Luck? Really!

4.       The want to know my Sex, why would that matter to get a card delivered?

5.       There is no #5 I am too sad about this bad scam to continue.
