The Scumbag Awards 2017

Most industries have their own awards to highlight top performers. E.g. The Oscars for the best over-actors and the Razzies for caught out over actors, the Stella award for dumbest lawsuits, the Darwin awards for dumbest life threatening accidents, the IgNobel awards for the most pointless scientific achievements etc.

So, the Fightback Ninja has created the Scumbag Awards 2017 for the scammer 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.

The awards will be announced in July.

Any scammer or spammer wishing to collect their award can do so at The Old bailey in London where a simple written admission of criminal activities will result in the award (and maybe a few years in jail to go with it).

There will; be awards for:-

  • The stupidest scammer
  • The biggest data breach
  • The most prolific lottery scam
  • Dating and Romance scams
  • Identity theft
  • The most destructive ransomware
  • Biggest phone scam

and more.
