A MESSAGE FROM SCAMS INC TO ALL USERS OF SCAMS INC, SCAMRAIDERS AND ALL OTHER AFFILIATED WEB-SITES AND DOMAINS

incScams Inc Assumed control of Scamraiders.com and all of its affiliated Domains in or about 2010. ScamsInc.com operates ALL of it’s Web-Sites pursuant to its published TERMS OF USE, clearly visible on ALL of it’s Sites.

Scams Inc is a INTERNATIONAL INTERNET NEWS ORGANIZATION, functioning also pursuant to its MISSION STATEMENT. We are focused on Investigating, and Reporting on all forms of scams, swindle, corruption, consumer frauds, corrupt businesses and illegal business practices, corrupt and unethical lawyers, doctors and other professionals, corrupt activities of any bank or lending institution, bad acts of hospitals and all other acts involving fraud upon the public and citizens—PLEASE SEE OUR “TERMS OF USE” PUBLISHED ON ALL OF OUR SITES AND DOMAINS.

Scams Inc takes pride in the care and research of its “Exposes”. Since the inception of Scamraiders, in 2008, Scams Inc-Scamraiders have exposed many wrongdoers from many walks of life. As a result in part, of our Reportings, many of the wrong-doers have been exposed.

The published Scams inc TERMS OF USE, clearly state that if any REPORT embraces any statement that the person or entity written about finds flawed, all they need to do is email their objection to Scams Inc for review and prompt Response.

Scams Inc will not usually or ever publish any Expose about any “Subject” without evidence and proof of the allegations in the Reports.

Over the past 7 years, Scamraiders-Scams Inc has received only 2 complaints, both resolved promptly.

Meanwhile, during this period of time a few persons we have written about exposing documented wrongdoing, have chosen to target Jim Couri, who was a founder of Scamraiders, and who resigned in 2009 due to grave health issues.

Although these “complaining persons” never filed any “complaint” to Scams Inc-Scamraiders for any content of any Report, they have harassed Jim and maligned him on the Internet.

Jim became a Consultant to Scams Inc–Scamraiders in 2011.

Scams Inc Scamraiders takes pride in the Content of its Reports and Exposes. Scams inc pursuant to its Terms of Use and Mission Statement takes responsibility for All of its published Reports.

Scams Inc is a bona-fide INTERNET NEWS REPORTING AGENCY.

The Reports, Articles, Exposes It Publishes are all written by Scams Inc’s writers, free-lance or otherwise.

ALL SCAMS INC STAFF AND CONSULTANTS ARE SUBJECT TO AND BOUND BY “CONFIDENTIALITY–NON DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS.

Due to the sensitive nature of Scams Inc’s Investigations and Reports all of its internal activities are confidential.

The premise that Jim Couri is Scams Inc and is the creator and writer of ScamsInc Reports as recently claimed by a disgruntled Subject of a “Expose” is laughable.

Meanwhile this “subject” never filed any “Objection” to any Report about him with ScamsInc as mandated by the Scams Inc Terms of Use.

Scams inc is expanding its activities and its Reporting. We have been of a significant value to the Public in exposing the wrongdoings of many. Wrongdoers desperately scheme to attempt in shrouding their bad acts and therefore malign, harass and lie to injure the News organizations and its employees to try and cover-up the wrong and illegal acts. Scams inc will not be “extorted” by anyone, but we will always be fair and honest.

Jim Couri is not Scams Inc, he at present is a Consultant to us. The wrongful abuse of Jim by a few charlatan wrongdoers, attacking Jim as retaliation for Scams Inc’s exposes about them is despicable. None of these “bad-actors” have complained to Scams Inc. They have rather abused, maligned and extorted Jim who is ill and who has been of great value to our Companies as a Consultant.

Scams Inc takes pride in its Reports and Exposes. If any Entity or Person has any Issue with such Reports they must simply follow the simple Rules and Terms in the published Terms of Use as set forth on all ScamsInc–Scamraiders Domains.

How do you ensure a charity is legitimate before giving money? If you get a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS and suspect it’s a scam, what should you do? How can you make sure that you are hiring a licensed lawyer?

Those were just a few of the questions addressed last month at a series of free seminars aimed at giving consumers the information they need to protect themselves against fraud.

The State Bar joined other regulatory agencies at the free workshops in March and April. Some seminars were tailored to a senior citizen audience and others focused on the topic of immigration fraud.

If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting.
