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.

Craigslist Scam maroon Bishop

Interesting scam... as I don't have any add on Craigslist.  However if I did, I doubt it would be for a "friend" as we all know Craigslist is the best place to find love.. well maybe a Crackhouse would be better, but that is just me.  

I am sure someone named Maroon will need some Money to make all your dreams come true.
