We will be adding a new header, where applicable, to our new scam publishes to indicate the type of scam. This is because there are always people asking if a “mail” is a scam even after we publish them in the specific scam category. One example is shown in the comments below the well-known Yahoo Awards Scam article.
Maybe some of you just like to waste our time, but we don’t like to miss our chance… to save someone.
As our news have shown, quite a large sum of money were lost in scams and in particularly the 419 type. We also know that the country where the scammer resides is not doing anything about it. And when the country gets too popular for a widespread scam, any other legitimate business offers became]]> suspicious. For example, I am unlikely to doubt any offers from companies contacting us via the internet trade leads portal… but I will be careful or even not deal with anyone from countries with a high rate of reported scams. This is my opinion, so you cannot say that I am wrong. Everyone has the right to protect themselves.
Back to the part about saving “someone”… 419 scam is just like fishing with a fishing pole. The scammers are not expecting a huge harvest like casting a giant net in the big open sea. They are looking that few of us who are naive to believe and send the money over.
And don’t forget our domain name, it says it all:
