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.

Oh, great, another chance to retire with the income..... if it were only true! 

I keep pretty good spam records, and don't recall the initial letter that I did not respond to, could they lie?  I would think not! 

Actually I thought by the subject, I was offered to be married, wonder if my wife approves?
