In my infrequent callouts to other websites thatÂ (like Scamdex) wereÂ created out of the blind fury experinced by seeing bad people taking money from good people, I have another site for you to take notice of.
But first, a recap:
When Scamdex started in 2004, there were very few sites about scams and Internet fraud; we felt there was a need to educate people and, using the power of Search Engines, set out to make it easy to check on emails and websites.
Since then, the field hasÂ grown – lots of Government-funded sites have sprung up, large Internet organizationsÂ have (finally) acknowledged that fraud does happen and now devote precious pages to warning their customersÂ “it’s not our fault, please don’t bother trying to sue us” “there are unscrupulous people out there so please don’t use Western Union to but Laptops from Nigeria” etc…
But still Scamdex and the many other privately run websites continue in their (often one-manned) struggle against the odds and so to one of these: ‘BobBear’
Bobbear.co.uk is a voluntary, non-profit site dedicated to providing information on fake companies offering part-time, work from home job scams, in particular money mule or money transfer fraud, aka ‘payment transfer agent’ scams and the related reshipping fraud or ‘parcels agent’ scams. They also provide victim advice and support. If you receive a suspect spam offering you a job or find a website offering fraud jobs then please send them (and us) a copy.
Please support them – you know it makes sense!
