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.

My name is Sandra Clark, Chief executive officer of Craigslist. We've recently joined up with Apple macintosh for a one-time promotional event today, we are giving away free Apple MacBooks to randomly selected individuals who have published an advert on C-list. You have been picked as one of our latest winners for today. We randomly choose numbers to match up with ads on Craig's list and your advertisement matched with our latest drawing.

Now we have joined up with Apple to promote their most popular product yet, the Apple MacBook. Once again, we're running this campaign for one-day only. All you need to do is CLICK HERE to check out our web site designed for this promotion and key in your email to recieve yours for free. Simply be sure to enter your email so we can locate our records to make certain that we have reserved one for you. That is it!

Congratulations on winning a free Apple MacBook (valued at $1299). In case you've any question or issues, feel free to e-mail me back. However, you should claim your free MacBook first to make sure one will be set-aside for you before the deadline ends. We do understand that you may possibly not receive this e-mail until after the deadline, but, we suggest you check out the web site and enter your email to see if we still have got yours on hold, which we often-times do as a result others haven't claimed theirs on time.

Sandra Clark

CEO, C-list
