I have been a part of the computer community from the ticker tape and punchcard days. As such, I have not only witnessed the birth of the Internet, but also many of the safety, security, scams and fraud problems that we face today. Since 2004, retired, bored and scammed (PTR/PTR) started investigating a wide range of scams, fraud and various security threats such as identity theft, cyberbullying to share experiences with other Internet Users.

Many that can affect you and your family can include both on and offline features. Dating or Romance Scams and Predators come to mind.

Internet users cannot escape a broad range of equipment, systems and network crimes that are designed to capture your information and disable your business.

Your personal or small business computer can be disabled and held “Ransom”. Such malware can shut down your network and equipment; even put you out of business with the click of a link or a hack.
