About Us and Our Mission
Pig Busters was officially started on July 4th, 2008. A day we like to call Independence Day From Scammers. Our Mission is to increase scammer awareness and warn as many people as we can. Since our beginning, we have accumulated 10's of 1000's of scammers and the list is growing every day.
Pics are not the real scammers
Unless noted, pictures shown are not the actual scammers. They are innocent people that most likely don't know they are being used by scammers. If you find your pictures listed & would like them removed, please Contact us & we will be glad to remove them & also let you know where we found them being used by scammers.
Scamming is a BIG Business
Scammers net millions if not billions of dollars each year world wide. IC3 reports that in 2009, Americans lost almost 560 million dollars to scams. Scammers take advantage of honest, hard working people looking for people that are lonely or recently had a tragedy in their life and play with their emotions.
How could I be so stupid
After getting scammed, many people ask the question "how could I be so stupid". The answer is, you're not. Scammers learn how to play on people's emotions and especially their concern for others. They will take as long as they think they need to gain your trust then the so-called problems they encounter will suddenly begin.
There are countless suicides because someone believed they were loved only to get very emotionally hurt and/or lose their life savings
Do these scammers look like they care?
Do not end up in jail
Every day, innocent people end up in jail and have criminal records for life because they did something illegal when they actually thought they were helping someone. Cashing bogus checks or money orders then sending that money overseas is a crime whether you are aware you are committing a crime or not.
Warn your friends
Scammer awareness is the only defense we have against these criminals. If you are on a social network or dating site and one of your friends is on the friends list of someone you know that has been verified as a scammer, please tell them or let us know and we will tell them for you.

Anonymous, thank you for your concern, but I think it plays a role how one was raised too, I had an aversion against men who ask money from a female and called them Gigolos. Than there is the other fact having grown up in a capitalistic country in Europe which sent people to work fast and didn`t keep them long on unemployment money, my own attitude is still similar, why should I support someone with my hard earned money? Yes, I still work a little despite my damaged tendons in my hand sometimes in pain! My past dating service experience in Europe played also a role with this, with psychology tests and also my longer one with computers and online activities in Compuserve forums in the past or other online communities, we even had a real life meeting for German speaking forum members in Vienna, Austria, which made one realize how different some are in reality. We also had a section in the Pc Online Compuserve forum for people who wanted to date! I also read many such stories on the web in the past and feel compassion for women who got seduced by an online dream, a crush on a picture and a skillful scammer, I read some are even trained to brain wash! I guess in my own case I also found it if the man loved me as much as he said he did, he would never try to seduce me to commit a criminal act! It was also suspicious to me that he never agreed to a video chat and I would never agree to a personal meeting before such either. Not long ago I tried hypnotherapy to give up smoking but it only helped me with my mourning, I guess I am a person who likes to remain in control? I enjoyed receiving love letters in English for the first time in my life, totally new to me and I could soon tell them apart which were copy and paste which one can check by adding the whole text to a Google search.

Site Moderator, thank you for the tips, I don`t get that many scammers a day maybe because I am older and taller than you or maybe because I put more restrictions on my partner wishes, like speaking at least 2 languages when I speak myself 4, or maybe being with a different dating site? True, maybe the account of "Lance" is halfway deactivated because no reaction back? My first contact there moved on after a short message exchange, the scammer is still active with me and he also exchanged more with me so far than anyone else! So far I only signed up for a trial version of Readnotify and it didn`t work, I will investigate it more and maybe contact the company too.

I am active on a dating site and have been contacted by as many as 10 scammers per day. I have reported over 12,000 scammers here on Pig Busters in five years. That should tell you how many are on dating sites. Scammers often talk to 10 or more women at a time. I do not report scammers to the dating sites anymore because I was targeted by the websites for violating their terms and they actually terminated my account. If they do not do that, then they can also prevent you from receiving messages which has happened to me several times. I do not recommend reporting the scammers. Instead, I block them from further contact, but I do not delete their messages. If I leave their messages and can see if their profile is still active, and can see when their profile is deleted. Even if the website deletes them, they will just turn around and open a new profile. You cannot tell on most sites if the profiles were actually deleted or suspended. I have come across numerous profiles that were supposedly deactivated, then all of a sudden the profile is re-activated, sometimes with the same picture or a different picture. If you are communicating with the scammers via email, you can view the email full header address (Google it to find out more) which sometimes have their IP address showing that they are in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa or Malaysia. Even if the IP address is Anonymous some providers do not hide the UTC international time stamp and you can figure out the time difference. Or you can sign-up for ReadNotify (Google it to find out more) and you will receive an email notification and get the IP Location, additionally you will know every time they open your email. Hope this helps.

Site Moderator you are great! I`m catching on, just found the guy here in your data base, I only had a first name from the dating site but there his account came also up twice like Lance`s, which is suspicious, Victor who communicated with me the other day only comes up once. Ferguson is registered here as Ferguson White, ID 580332 and I recognized him even he used a different picture, a picture with a parrot on the dating website! How funny that my intuition told me he was a scammer pretty much from the start? But I want to play with him a little longer to see his moves? But it is a sad record that I found 2 romance scammers in 3 days on this dating web site?! They have not reacted to my complaint so far either and Lance was not removed! I will also look out for the time difference to Nigeria being 8 hours to me! He is 32 miles from me according to his profile, so how will he try to avoid a meeting in person, being on a business trip?

Check the first name and last name separately. If you see the same picture it is different profiles. The other thing is always open the profile pictures and look at all the pictures. Sometimes a profile only has one picture and that same picture is on a different profile as a secondary picture which you will not notice if you do not check.

Regardless of what you may see on web cam, Skype, etc. the people in the pictures are NOT the scammers so please be respectful and avoid personal attacks, name-calling, vulgarity, or offensive comments including the scammer and especially the pictures as they are innocent people and in most cases, do not know their pictures are used by scammers
Do not post addresses, phone numbers, company names or anything that is considered personally identifiable information. A scammer may have a US phone number today but an innocent person could be assigned that number in the future. Post phone numbers like this 555-555-xxxx hiding the last four numbers

Due to spamming, comments with links to web sites will not be posted
Do not post the same comment on every scammer profile using the same pic(s). Post it only on one scammer profile

Procedures to search, add, & report scammers
You must be a Member to post a comment. After signing in, you may post your comment as "Anonymous"
Never trust a phone number
If someone gives you a phone number starting with 4470, it is a link number that connects you with anywhere in the world, but not to a real UK number. Link services are also available with U.S. area codes so never rely on a phone number for a true location.
The Scam Police
There is no such thing as Scam Police or ScamPolice. Cashing fake checks/money orders or receiving products then reshipping overseas can be a criminal offense. The REAL police can't do anything to scammers, so that just leaves you to take the blame.
From mass emails to web sites
About 30 years ago, the only way scammers could operate was through mass emails. In the mid 80's, they were called "Yahoo Boys" as opposed to "scammers". Today, scammers have a much better way to reach more people on a more personal level through social networking and dating web sites.
A Special Thank You
All of us here at Pig Busters would like to acknowledge and give special thanks to those of you who support this web site and its mission to increase scammer awareness by your positive comments, sharing your experiences and reporting scammers to us so the information can be posted to warn others.
Mean, cold and heartless
Like the terrorists above, scammers are not the "nice guys" they make themselves appear to be. When they don't get what they want from you, they can be very mean and many times threatening. Usually threats are their last attempt to try and intimidate you into sending them money.
They love you then need you
Scammers will tell you they have fallen in love with you within the first few messages or chats. They want to come be with you but all of a sudden, some crisis happens and they don't have the money, can't get to the money or for some other false reasons, you are the only person that can help them.
Chat with me
One of the first things a scammer will do is to try and get you away from the site to chat with them on instant messenger. Scammers try to work very fast in most cases and IM is much faster than conversating through emails and web site messages.
Read my profile
One of the biggest advantages scammers have is that many, many people do not read profiles. They get so taken by that "good looking" guy or girl who sent them a message, they immediately focus on communication without even looking at the profile.
I want to send you a surprise
NEVER give your personal information to anyone you meet on a social networking or dating site. These days, it is just too dangerous. If you are talking to anyone who does not understand this, that should be a big red flag. Even if they want to "send you something, a surprise". This is a very common tactic used by scammers to get your information.
I want you to do me a favor
Another thing that is very popular with scammers is that they will want to send you items like clothes, shoes, cell phones, lap top computers and many other items. They will then want you to repackage them and ship the items to them so they can resell them. Don't do it. The items are always purchased with stolen credit card information.
About the social and dating sites
Pig Busters is not on any of the social or dating sites and are not a member of any group on the social or dating sites. We do have old profiles on some sites and the sites refuse to remove them but we are not active and cannot even access the accounts. If anyone contacts you from a social or dating site or a group on a social or dating site claiming to be Pig Busters, it is not us. We have Members of You're IT! and Scam Busters on Pig Busters that help by reporting scammers to us they find on other sites but we do not use the sites in any form to promote You're IT! or Pig Busters and we do not promote or recommend any social or dating web sites.

Try not to get so wrapped up in a picture of someone that you ignore inconsistencies, flags and warning signs
