About

WE HATE INTERNET AND SMARTPHONE SCAMS!  Like hundreds of thousands of people, we are  targeted every week by cybercriminals.  And our children, elderly parents, and friends have also been targeted, some of them successfully. 

One of the best ways to help people from becoming victims to these criminals is through education.  That's why we started the free website called "The Daily Scam" more than four years ago.  And since then we've helped hundreds of thousands of people, at our own expense to keep the website up and running.

But now our poor, old website needs to be replaced by a much better site to serve the public and we're hoping you'll help us raise the funds that we need to do this.  Please donate!   We plan to hire 829Studios of Boston, Massachusetts to build a new website and better develop the tools we need to reach more people... if we can raise the funds.

Thanks for considering,

Doug and David

Risks and challenges

To our supporters who make a donation that is large enough to earn one of our rewards, please contact Doug at The Daily Scam (Doug@thedailyscam.com) and we can begin to talk about arranging the workshops, your specific needs and a date that works for both of us. And thanks!

    Web Sponsorship seen by thousands!

    Would you like to be seen by hundreds of thousands of people? Though we do not sell advertising on our web site, TheDailyScam.com, we accept sponsorships! This reward will give your business or organization a sponsorship placement on the 25 most popular webpages on TheDailyScam.com for a full year, instead of our standard quarterly commitment. Sponsorship banners and logos will be clickable links that must fit a standard banner or ad size, such as 750 x 120 pixels or 350 x 300 pixels. All sponsor logos and associated links must be provided by sponsoring company BUT The Daily Scam reserves the right to reject any sponsorship that is contrary to the purpose of our educational service. (We once rejected sponsorship from a Dating Website that had a bad reputation for scamming their customers!) NOTE: We cannot predict future readership and guarantee an exact number of pageviews. However, our readership has been increasing by many thousands for each of the last 4 years!)
