Current Status

This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.



So I've decided to try out a "blog". Why? Because I suspect that it's the right tool for this job. The "job" in this case is the job of shining a spotlight on deceptive Internet practices, with particular reference to email and web-related nasties. There is, at present, a thriving industry in separating victims from their money by means of online deception. "Phishing" emails, where a big fat liar sends you email and claims that he's your bank (or similar), are one such form of deception. As I stumble across these deceptive practices, I'll document them here. That way, the next person to encouter suspicious activity might do a search and find that the fraud has already been exposed.

Be careful out there, folks.
