Is Your Email Message a Scam?

If you received a suspected email scam, you should use this site’s scam buster software program. It allows you to cut and paste an email message or multiple email messages into one form. Its software program will determine if the email/emails is/are a known scam. Moreover, you can also add additional details in a separate form.

As you already know, beware of messages that mention sweepstakes, lotteries, money-making offers, work-at-home opportunities, pyramid/Ponzi schemes, Nigerian 419 scams, envelope stuffing, drugs/pills, and etc. Remember the old US postal axiom: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"

By the way, the site is aptly called Ask the "Scam-O-Matic!”

One last thing, they do ask for an email address where they can contact you if they later find out that it's a scam. Just be cognizant of the email request.
