Thanks, we welcome scam reports and we will try to publish as many as we can. However, as we are a free site and working during our free time, we will try our best to publish all scam reports. As it currently stands, we have quite a bit of backlogs in scam reports which we are juggling our time to get them published.
When forwarding scam reports, make it simple. Just click the forward button and enter our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help 🙂
