    The scammers convinced the woman that her license was involved in a drug trafficking case in which $2.4 million was laundered through 15 bank accounts. They offered the woman an option of getting a lawyer and sitting in jail for at least six months or signing a federal bond agreement.

    I can't imagine they failed to remove this little. Plenty of scammers have been operating in full view for years with maybe a token scolding every now and again.

    SynapseXT fake news stories??? Questionable claims??? Treating Tinnitus???

    Time permitting I like to explore articles about unusual scams. There are only so many ways you can say no:

    you are not going to get paid to wrap your car,
    the IRS isn't going to demand you pay in Bitcoin,
    you didn't meet a solider stationed overseas or an oil rig worker that just happen to need a cash wire for "insert plausible but bullshit tale here",
    the guy on Facebook can't make you 1% per day,
    and there isn't some magic fix for a health problem that's a big secret only your bowling buddy knows about...

    When I stumbled upon this first link I was intrigued, a new scam. a new twist on an old scam?

    Wrong on both fronts an advertorial under the guise of medical news...

    This advertorial was slightly more clever, so I pulled out what I considered relevant.

    Final Word

    Unfortunately, there’s no evidence Synapse XT works as advertised to help with cognition or hearing. Despite the high price of $70 per bottle, Synapse XT contains low doses of ingredients compared to competing supplements.

    Certainly the government and science hasn't/doesn't get everything right. Still I'll trust that over the advice of companies that post advertorials and use "scam" in the title to bait readers.

    Re: Cut and paste snippets about scams.

    We've covered this scam before.

    A very simple solution exists, go to your local public shelter and adopt a pet.

    But my shelter doesn't have the cute little ball of fur that I want, maybe adopting isn't all about you.
    But the shelter depresses me, I'm certain the animals understand now that they know your emotional state.
    But my shelter euthanizes animals, see previous excuses while mouthing them in the mirror.

    But but but I just want a puppy...

    According to ABC Action News, a scammer told Shepard that hackers were trying to charge a $1,000 iPhone to her Amazon account and that they would help show her how to delete her credit cards.

    Beware: One woman already lost $2,000 to this new Amazon scam
