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.


News: Qchex shut down by FTC and US courts

Good news for a change: one of the major sources of fraudulent cheques (checks) in the USA has been shut down and ordered to hand over their revenues. Qchex offered a service whereby anyone could have cheques printed for any bank account, but the service made no attempt to verify that the person placing the order had any authority to do so. I hope this puts a significant dent in cheque fraud, but it's too much to hope that it will eliminate the problem completely.
