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: Confidential Matter - Mike Mcmullen

I blocked the email address, as I think the real Mike McMullen's house was hacked, I don't think he is sending the SPAM and I did send him an email just in case. 

Regardless of who sent it, we know why they sent it.  They want to steal your money!
