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 - Mrs. Deborah L Perdue- Urgent God Bless American 460 call (916-222-3932)

Over and over and over again this scam comes with different names, different amounts, but the same old repackaged scam.  You can put a pink bow on a can of spam, it is still ground up pig parts.

I got not only this one but several others as well. I know someone who thought that it was all true until we spoke about identity theft and that if it was true he would receive a letter in the mail. Wish there was a way to stop all these scams so no more innocent people will be hurt.
