Internet Scams

The DBLearning Site Scam

I signed up with Mr. Smith for his boot camp. The camp had 2 of the promised 6 online sessions. Then everything mysteriously stopped.

Mr. Smith has refused all phone calls and emails. I filed a claim with the better business bureau and after 2 months they said the total of what they can do is to not list his company as a member any more and then referred me to the Ocean county consumer affairs office.

Mr. Smith is now offering CD ROMS of his "training." Don't buy them! Search the internet for others who have been duped by this scammer. And yet he is still offering this boot camp to unsuspecting people! And he has the gall to say that he offers a money-back guarantee.

Mr. Smith swindled me out of $1000, don't you be next!

The Web Site

A spam email recently appeared that reads as follows:

From: Robert Allen - Oracle Security Consultant <>

Subject: I recorded it incase you missed it

Date: Thu, 28 Oct 2004 16:40:28 +0000

Hi. I just wanted to send you a quick note to inform you that my "Hack-Proofing the Oracle Database" online class sold out in less than 48 hours.

Many of you have been calling my office to ask when the next course will be offered, but unfortunately I'm booked for security consulting assignments straight through March, 2005.
