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.

In the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of this quarter of the year 2012, we discovered that the Bank Accounts belonging to some Beneficiaries have been changed on the basis that the owners have DIED IN TESTATE (without leaving a WILL) some time last year or have given out an authorization note of change of data.
After the investigations however, it was revealed that there are Foreigners who are collaborating with Retired or former Staff to make these changes illegally without the knowledge of the Bonafide Beneficiaries and there is one traced to your data been changed to one MR. DAVID BROWN of GLOBAL OIL & GAS SERVICES (UK) who said you are dead, hence they have forwarded a DEAD CERTIFICATE bearing your name so as to divert your funds, IT WAS STATED THAT YOU DIED OF HEART FAILURE.
They have also forwarded the bank account below as the new account that will receive this fund / money.
