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 > I am presently at JFK Airport in the United States

Well I am from Brooklyn, so JFK would make sense if I have not been out of Brooklyn for 30+ years.  Why would someone fly to Kennedy and sit there waiting for an email contact to deliver your money, would they not get that info "before" going on a plane to another country?  Better yet, they got all they way to NY without knowing who I am, the TO" field is blank, and they know nothing about me.  I guarantee no matter what you answer to them they will say you're the right one. 

Silly scam at best, more holes than Swiss cheese.

Plus what diplomat needs an AOL email address?
