Farewell from The UnSponsored Link
Due to economic considerations, Consumers Union has decided to shut down Consumer Reports WebWatch as of July 31, 2009.
Along with our parent site, Consumer Reports WebWatch, the UnSponsored Link will remain online as a consumer resource, but we'll no longer be able to follow-up on your comments or investigation requests. As such, for our last post, we’d like to highlight some of the techniques we’ve used to uncover the dozens of online scams we’ve exposed in this blog. We hope you’ll be able to use these methods to spot an online scam before you find yourself scammed.
