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.

Bad Email Scam >: I'm Ms. Salote Bernard of Tampa, FL 33629., I'm a US citizen, I'm 51yrs Old

Badly done, what a mess!  Bad layout, bad writing, bad text.  International Phone Number.  Ohio Mailing Address.  French Email address.  Email reply is Canada.  You can tell it not written as English as a first language.  

Badly written money scam.

Dear Friend

I'm Ms. Salote Bernard of Tampa, FL 33629., I'm a US citizen, I'm 51yrs Old. I'm one of those that took part in the

Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $38,000 while in the US, trying to

get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barr.Mathew

James, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD AUTHORITY and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer), and I

contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I'm the most happiest woman on

earth because I have received my compensation funds amounting to $850,000.00 Moreover, Barr.Mathew James,

showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the scam

victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only

making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barr.Mathew James on his contact information below

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Name: Barr.Mathew James (Barrister)
Cell Phone number(+2347025842435)

You are hereby advised to contact Barr.Mathew James with the following information's below

1. Your Names in full.
2. Your Occupation.
3. your Residential Address.
4. Your Place and date of birth.
5. Your Telephone and fax Number

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it

is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

The only money I paid after I met Barr.Mathew James was just $285 for the paper works which lead to the success of

receiving my funds

Thank You and Be Blessed.
