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.

Email Money Scam : From Miss Rachel Edwin / Abidjan

The only thing fun about this scam is Abidjan - just love the name, always wanted to
visit, however according to google it is very humid with thunderstorms
coming this week. Other than that, a very poorly written scam.
