The story of Scam Detector

Scam Detector iPhone App

The Scam Detector app was created after the outstanding success of The 419: The Nigerian Scam, a short film which quickly became a viral hit, being viewed over a million times online. The docu-drama was the first movie ever made on the infamous 419 topic.

The production premiered worldwide at the West Hollywood International Film Festival in June 2008. Soon after, it won the Rappahannock Independent Film Festival in Fredericksburg, VA. The news traveled so fast across the Internet not only because of the sensitive topic but also because the movie was made with only $180, everybody volunteering!

Ever since, thousands of fans have inquired not only about the production of the full length feature of the film, but also about the creation of a smartphone application which would expose the most fraudulent activities in the world. And we did it!

Scam Detector™ is now the largest fraud prevention resource in the world and is operated by a full team of professionals providing the best safety measures, along with our world-class partners. We help millions of people around the globe to take conscious consumer choices, for a better life.

The founder of Scam Detector, Sorin Mihailovici, was given the Top 40 Under 40 award by Avenue Magazine in 2013, and is a highly sought after individual for speaking engagements at conferences and fraud prevention events. You can see some of his permanent guest appearances on Breakfast Television show (aired on Citytv) on our Newsroom page.
