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 : PROPOSAL! / Mr. Mike Bradford


Blah blah blah, blah blah...  Blah..

Over and over again, the same scam, redone a million plus times, it never ends.  2 y/o children know this scam more than accepting candy from strangers. 

I am a NY Jew, living in Oregon, I have a few family members scattered throughout NY and Florida, what are the odds, that "ME" someone the author does not know (as the email is addressed to NOBODY" is the "kin" to some unknown stranger.
