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.

My name is Mrs Sandra Ferguson; I work with the One on One Tracking Ltd, a
consulting Firm in London, UK. We are conducting a standard process
investigation involving a client who shares the same name with you and also
the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client at HSBC Bank

The HSBC Private Banking client died intestate and nominated no next of kin
to inherit the title over the investments made with HSBC Bank Plc. The
essence of this communication with you is to request that you provide us
information on three issues:

1-Are you aware of any relative/relation having the same surname, whose
last known contact address was Madrid, Spain?

2-Are you aware of any investment of considerable value made by such a
person at the HSBC Bank Plc.?

3-Can you establish beyond reasonable doubt your eligibility to assume
status of next of kin to the deceased?

It is pertinent that you inform us ASAP whether or not you are familiar
with this personality that we may put an end to this communication with you
and our inquiries surrounding this personality.

You must appreciate that we are constrained from providing you with more
detailed information at this point. PLEASE RESPOND BACK TO MY PRIVATE AND
possible to afford us the opportunity to close this investigation.

Thank you for accommodating our enquiry.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs. Sandra Ferguson.
