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.

Ciao. Sono Giuseppe ed Ho Ricevuto una e mail dove mi dicono che ho vinto 2,5 milioni di euro ad una lotteria in Belgio. Adesso non riesco a capire se è una bugia. Perché non ha senso che io vado fino in Bruxelles e poi non c'è niente. Potrebbe essere uno scherzo. Oppure è un esca per Rapire persone e fare commercio di organi o prostituzione?
