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.

Money Scam > 2011 United Nations Compensation Program

They screwed up this scam by messing up the senders first and last name by putting two names in each box.   


None of the combos work and give this error: W0131 We do not have an order with the provided information. Please verify your information and click Check Status.


Regardless of their common mistake, and being most likely new to the scam business, no one is giving free money. There are no lotteries, no compensation groups, and Western Union does not use an and/or email addresses.


Not really a  well done scam, but different that some others so worth posting.

I made $20 for a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what major companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer base needs and wants. So these companies pay millions of dollars every month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
