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.

Up until now, I've been lumping Lottery Scams together with 419 Advance Fee Fraud. Although the two are closely related, there is enough of both and enough difference between them to warrant separate classification. I'm not going to retro-actively re-label all the lottery fraud in the archive so far, because doing so will also change the URLs for the articles and break any links people have made. For the record, advance fee fraud is a normal part of a lottery scam, but there's usually more to it than that -- thus the distinction.
