    Bureau of Defaulters

    "The email says itís a court notice from the Bureau of Defaulters Agency-FTC with your arrest warrant record attached. It says youíve ignored their efforts to contact you, so now your Social Security number is on hold by the federal government, youíll be prosecuted for fraud, and youíll owe all kinds of money when youíre found guilty. Youíve got just 24 hours to respond."

    These types of scams prey on the older generation - the baby boomers who have always tried to do everything right. Be aware that there is no Bureau of Defaulters.

    Thanks for posting up that information on a scam.

    Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post containing the name the scammer is using, his email address, phone number and the emails themselves and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".

    Wasting a scammer's time legally and safely is called "scambaiting". If you google that word, you will find sites where you can read scambaits, post up the emails and email addresses of scammers, post up a fake website, read up on how to alert a hosting company that they are hosting a fake website, ask questions and learn all about the hobby of scambaiting.

    Since that scammer intended to steal your money, he did not give you his real life information. All you have is one of his fake names, one of his free email addresses, one of his fake stories and one of his paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers. None of that information is going to help your local law enforcement agency track down that anonymous scammer sitting in a cyber cafe half way around the world from you.
