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.

I have been talking with a man called John Douglas Parker, he friended me on Facebook, he was not found to be a scammer on here, but is suspect, written messages are not worded as an American would word them, claimed that he was born in Indianapolis, Indiana but that his mother took him to Spain when he was a young boy and he lived there most of his life, is strange that he was born in Indiana when I am from Indiana and living in Florida, he claims to be in Ft Lauderdale, Fla. He is 17 years younger than I am and says that that does not matter to him, does not answer direct questions. I suspect that he is a scammer and looking for a soft touch, will watch and wait. His occupation is repairing broken pipes under the water, internationally. Contacted the wrong woman this time.

I recently friended a man who called himself Erickson Stroud on Facebook. He began sending messages in somewhat broken English. He claimed to be from Texas, however I noticed he would spell words in proper English versus Americanized. For example he would spell colour for color. I knew right away what he was. But I have watched many of the Dr Phil catfish episodes and I know their tricks. I played along wasting his time awhile. And I googled one of his not broken English paragraphs, it was about what kind of woman he was looking for and it popped up to a military scammers site. I remember Dr Phil talking about Pigbusters, so I came here, and when I read the part about the suicides, I became emotional. I went back and I wrote a long emotional appeal to this scammer hoping to get this person to realize the harm they cause . I know the chances of getting through to their brain is almost nil. But I had to try, as soon as this person reads my reply I will be reporting their profile to Facebook. Thanks for the work all of you do on this site!

I have been "hired" as Frederick C. Pravec of "Pravec Enterprises" the cpmpany im finding is fake. The email address is admin@pravecprises.com he hired me as his personal assistant while hes out of the country. Now sent me a check that is for over 2 grand he thinks im going to cash. Will only email me and text because hes "hard of hearing. Wants me to take my pay out amd send the rest to "the orphanage". When i asked him if the check would clear at a check cashing place instead of my personal bank he got mad at me for questioning him. Haven`t heard anything back. The whole process was very convincing at first and as a single mom with 4 babies i was very excited to find a job that could worl with my availability. Up until i mentioned the check to my mom and she opened my eyes to it. Watch out

Chris Martinez..claims to be from Belgium and has a Belgian accent. I have 85 emails and more texts from this man. Apparently works in China...tried to scam a laptop from me, but I refused. Carried out a 3-month relationship with me via text, email, hangouts and phone. Cellphone tracks to the Tacoma area: 253-287-3742. Writes in broken English, but sometimes it`s better than others. I suspect this is a group, not an individual. Claims to be a jewelry designer and mining broker, frequently uses this verbage: I decided to enter into Professional Jewellery designing and a Mining Broker, Exporting and Importing of Gold and Diamonds. That`s where i got to know challenges comes with all that we dream of; At the beginning, these are some of the questions I asked myself... how do I design Jewelries? Where do I begin? I started with a group of fashion designers project and made all kinds of funky stuff in order to win a contract? I started with great ideas for jewellery, sketched out a few pieces. I made all the basic steps I needed to take before I call myself a "Jewellery Designer". With the huge help from my father and one of the few reality shows I`ve ever enjoyed, and the main thing I liked about it was that it showed me designing – working – and that didn`t involve sitting down with a sketch pad, that was how I got the background in Arts from the basics level. I love designing Rings, Earrings, and Bracelets etc. I have been into jewellery designing for many years and always moving forward up to this point of my life; I learned how to make Jewelries from Studgade School of Art and learned hard to gain my PhD in Decoration Art and landmines from Hamburg University Germany. Sometimes, it is the little things we think we cannot do are what bring out the brilliance of what you can. Would be sending you some of my designs works from time to time so you have a really fair idea of what i do and really talking about.

Claimed to be from Solon, IA where his mother was a journalist. Father was a jeweler in Belgium who taught him the trade. I turned up a Chris Martinez in Franklin, NC, and contacted the company. They didn`t recognize his pictures.

Comment Rules
You must or to post a comment. After signing in, you may post your comment as "Anonymous"
We have a ZERO tolerance for showing a lack of respect for other Members, especially referring to scam victims as stupid, ignorant, idiot, etc. This is cause for immediate deletion of your account with no warning or notification. Please be respectful towards others
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
Do not post comments of a sexual nature or content of any kind
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
If you violate these rules your comment will be deleted and if you continue to violate the rules your account will be deleted with no warning or notification
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.
