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: Can you be trusted?? Reply Urgently

Can I be trusted, HA!  And you're pulling the scam.  Send it to 100 addresses at once and using the old shotgun effect.  Shoot a shotgun into the air over and over again and eventually you will hit a duck.  Sorry... bad scam.
