Scams of the Week: October 12, 2011

Indivision Consulting Company - This business is a work at home scheme. They claim to be at "600 Broadway" in Kansas City, but like most scams, they don't give a suite number, making it difficult to verify if they are there.  The building has multiple suites and no one, not even the property manager of the building can use the address without adding a suite number and expect to get any mail. The website has some testimonials on there. However, the website has only been around for 20 days.

Facebook Chat Window Phishing - This is a small twist on the normal phishing scams. This one doesn't show up on a person's wall, but a chat window. The window says that the user's Facebook information needs to be verified or the account will be closed.

MBA - A foreign lottery from Auckland, New Zealand.  At any point that anyone claims that you've won the lottery or a sweepstakes from outside the country, know that it is a scam. It is always a scam and always will be.
