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.


Misc: Ghana Gold

These weirdo scammers are certainly trying some new angles today. Now they're telling me I can buy 200kg of gold off them, and they'd like to mine some diamonds for me as well. It's worrying to think that there are people who are both rich enough and stupid enough to respond to this sort of thing.
