The Bottom Line

There are hundreds of known scammer names, and they change regularly and the drones try to keep one step ahead of the law.  The list below is by no means exhaustive - it does, however, give you an idea of the magnitude of the problem.  By now, these names have certainly all been replaced by others, but the game will be the same.

As a matter of curiosity, a large percentage of these originate in Las Vegas or New York.  You can draw your own conclusions.

Names in red are recent additions.
