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 > United Nations Compensation Program

Reply email comes from http://www.optuszoo.com.au/, not the United Nations.

Emails with the word "Payment" in the subject line are never legitimate.

There are no "global meltdown payments" via, United Nations Compensation
Program or any other.

Western Union does not use free Microsoft @live.com emails.

Badly done scam.
