About the only way we can fight this is through awareness, a lot of people are not familiar with these scams, and they look so real that they're bound to fool lots of people.
I've been able to close some of these websites by getting the name of the hosting company for the website and letting them know that the owners of that site are using their server to commit fraud, and they've close the sites.
Thanks for posting that BHYC, it helps us good guys to educate people.
Join an Internet Counter-Scamming Group
This is a rather fun way to do your part to exhasperate and waste the time of Internet scammers, many of whom operate from Internet cafes in 3rd World countries, mostly Nigeria.
Several groups on the Web specialize in working as counter-scammers, such as www.419eater.com. That group of anonymous volunteers pretends to be gullible victims of the "419 scam" (named after the Nigerian penal code for fraud), where a rich relative allegedly dies and leaves millions of dollars they want to transfer to your bank account (that's the most common). They pretend to be victims and basically drive the scammers crazy, get them to go through hilarious ceremonial rituals, have them go to the airport to pick up someone who is not there, get them believing that they are recruiting stuntmen for Hollywood and have the scammers videotape themselves jumping off the roofs of houses, etc.... it can be a lot of fun and can be done safely. Check out their "trophy room" and their video page. But I warn you, don't be drinking anything before viewing their trophy room page, you'll surely spill it all over your keyboard from laughing uncontrollably!
What the Counter-scammers do to the Scammers
Here are a couple of "trophys" where the "gullible victims" (who were really counter-scammers) convinced the scammers (Nigerians) that they had to join the "victim's" religion before they could do business with them (the greed of these scammers is such that they will often go to great lengths to get money from their victims, all the while making fools of themselves and receiving absolutely nothing from the "victim"). Look and laugh!
This one apparently had to photograph himself going through some sacred rights the "victim" told him he must perform.
This one had to prove that he had joined the "victims" religion by putting a fish on his head and biting loaf of bread, among lots of other things.
A religious ceremony involving a beer and milk baptism.
The typical Nigerian scammer doesn't get the nuances of the English language.
Another Nigerian photographs himself expressing his zeal for the "victim's" religion.
Again, a scammer is counter-scammed for the World to see, and makes an idiot out of himself in the process.
(don't feel sorry for these bastards, they'll target anybody, and have caused some to lose their life savings... they don't feel sorry for the real victims, many of whom are the poor, living other third world countries).
Others have forced the scammers to videotape themselves doing the entire "Dead Parrot" sketch from Monty Python" (it's on their video page), the counter-scammers have great imaginations! Anybody can anonymously join the group if you're interested, they will tell you how to do it safely. But beware, it's addictive! Again, you can help this group drive the scammers crazy and even shut some of them down by joining the 419 Eaters at www.419eater.com. It's worth a visit just to see the trophy room and the videos of scammers making asses out of themselves for money which they will never receive.

Customers who have registered domain names through Network Solutions, as well as several other domain name providers are currently a target of a large scale phishing scam. A fraudster is sending e-mails to customers asking them to log in to renew or edit their domain name registration, and providing a link to a fraudulent site designed to look like networksolutions.com and to capture customer username and password information, or other private information.
If you believe you have received an e-mail of this type and have clicked on the link, and provided your login information, we recommend the following for security purposes:
* login to your account
* review your account information for accuracy
* change your password security question and answer
* change your password
Loved the Nigerian scanm photos - makes me want to have a play!

That's great to see, even though we cleaned out a few hundred members and fake members who were here only to spam the forums. Still having some problems with that, banning and deleting, one by one. Did three this morning. I hope some of the new members will tell others and bring more.
congratulations turkey central has passed 1,000 registered members,,and growing very fast.
I have a visceral hatred for these scammers, they take advantage of the many on the Internet who are unaware of what's really going on. I think of the many people I meet who only have a basic idea of how things work and what easy prey they would be, especially those using the Internet for the first time. It's scary.
419Eaters has done a great job with what they do, the scammers never know if they have a real victim or if THEY are now the victim! The group there is very supportive, they have an advantage because they cooperate with each other, while the scammers compete with each other. They're always happy to have a new counter-scammer on their team.
makes me want to have a play!
The post you made was a phishing scam, and I don't think they work those... I believe all the phishers are after is a person's ID and credit card info and there isn't much you can do to play with them. The love scams, rich dead relative scams, the big box full of money nobody knows about but me scam, those are all definitely playable. I'm amazed at the scenarios and fakery they come up with to keep a scammer going, and get them all spun up!
