The Daily Scam website is a resource to help people counter online fraud – it is funded by donations and has been attacked a number of time by hackers trying to stop them.
“The Daily Scam was developed by Doug Fodeman and David Deutsch in response to the overwhelming number of Internet scams and online fraud targeting them, their friends and colleagues”.
“Our goal is simple: To help people better understand internet-based threats, scams and fraudulent practices, and how to avoid them”.
“The problem is getting larger every year. Despite people’s best intentions to stay safe online there are extremely talented scam artists and criminal gangs who successfully manipulate us into infecting our computers with malware, or trick people into revealing personal information that puts us at risk. During the last few years these threats have been increasing and we’re as sick and tired of them as you!”
These guys are big believers in education as the solution to these scammers.
They have created resources on their website to educate business and the public to keep your computers and your information safe. There is a free weekly newsletter “The Daily Scam” which aims to expose the latest scams and offer tips for reducing your risks online.
They offer webinars and workshops to help to educate people.
The website includes:-
- Lots of useful articles
- T-shirts and mugs with anti scam slogans
