• Do they publish news stories on assisted suicide? • Do they say they know others who have been scammed (to prove they are not scammers)?
• Do they offer to oversee the transaction so you won’t lose your money?
• Do they ask that you keep the communication ‘discrete’? • Do they offer fast and discrete shipping? • Do they say they have 501c status or an IRS number? • Do they require insurance? • Do they use a fake courier company? Have you checked? • Where are they based? Scammers use addresses as disparate as: California, Belgium and Ukraine.
• Are they especially keen to make a sale? • Is their site or email address similar to any of those listed in this book?
The more the business of scamming changes, the more it stays the same. What amazes the authors of this book is the seeming lack of interest by the authorities in the rort which is the fake business of selling Nembutal over the Internet.
This lack of interest seems all the more remarkable given the police raids on elderly folk over recent months in many countries in Europe, Nth America and Australia.
It seems the US DEA or Department of Homeland Security are far more interested in catching out those who have ordered from a genuine supplier - who want an insurance policy for the future - than chasing those who extort and steal money while delivering nothing.
