The Fightback Ninja has created the Scumbag Awards 2017 for the scammers and spammers who make our lives miserable through theft of money, time and even identity.
Each week, the Fightback Ninja will select and publicise one or more categories of scam or spam and a list of contenders for the award. You pick the winner by voting online and the awards will be announced in July.

Lifestyle Survey Calls
Endless calls “I’d like you to answer some simple questions please. It’ll only take 5 minutes”
Yeah – they are short calls but it’s the flood of unwanted calls that comes afterwards from the companies they sell their results to that is the problem.
Mystery Shopper Offers
Endless emails offering a job as a mystery shopper in any shop you want – you just have to fill in a survey first.
But the scammer makes its money from the surveys and there are no mystery shopper jobs and no $1000 vouchers as promised.
Remote Working Jobs
Scammers know that huge number of people are desperate for a job they can do at home and make some money to improve their lifestyle or just to cope with bills. But it’s always a scam and the victims end up paying for nothing.
Billions of these emails go out every week.
Vote by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and specify category and your chosen candidate.
