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: Dear Partnership / general bartels Kweku

Sing the Spam song from Monty Python and just subsitute the word SCAM
instead of SPAM and you will get the idea... but that may not work as some
people love SPAM, but Scams and Spam is sorta of the same thing. I kinda
love them, I find sarcastic humor in their bad attempts to scam people. I
also love the fact I get emails now and then from people that were falling
for a scam until they read my site or heard me on the radio (back when) and
it saved them. That is the best feeling of all.

Oh, the below is a huge scam.
