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 Detectorâ„¢ 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.

    I would like you to check out "StaynHoliday".I am conviced that I am the victim of their scam .We host a cuple of huest units and this company called. They convinced me (in my naivete) that they were a large tourist business and assured me that I would get at least 10 inquiries.In addition I was told that I received a special discounted fee and that I would be part of the Diamond package which promises even greater exposure .

    Of course ,not only did I not get the inquiries bit when i called support they told me that actually I was not entitled to the diamond package and I cannot get my money returned,despite the fact that the agent who sold it to me was fired due to negligence.I argued with them that they should assume resonsibility,and they asked me to prove that I was given the diamond package. I tole them to lookitup on their recors and then they said that there were no records of the diamnd purchase and I am entitiled only to the base package.
    Whn I asked them why I didnt get enquiries ,they said they would look into it.A few hours later I recieved a bogus inquiry that was dated from many years ago.
    I called and spoke to a man with an accent from India claiming that "StaynHoliday" were hosting in the U.S .He was very unlpleasent and spoke so rapidly and unclearly.

    I want to report and encourage an investigatigation of this Company,to warn others of this company

    Thanks J.F

    I just received one of these "National Reply mail" scams. It almost had me going but it had so many red flags on it but the one thing that almost made me send it off was the official government picture of the "Medicare & You 2015" benefit book. Its a picture of the very one my husband received and I almost sent it in but at the last minute, decided to look this up on the internet and am so grateful to God, He encouraged me to do that. Now I know it is a scam. But I would think it is illegal to use a picture of the official government book.

    THESE COMPANIES OF DEBT COLLECTORS NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN, SO THEY CAN NEVER KEEP PLAYING WITH THE LANDLINE TELEPHONES JUST TO AGGRAVATE PEOPLE, BECAUSE ALL THEIR BUSINESS IS GOOD FOR IS ROBO CALLING JUST TO GET NEW CUSTOMERS! THEY'RE OUT OF LINE AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
