(This sub-forum seems to be where scam questions are asked on geekzone.  If there's a better one, please tell me.)


Searching on Google hints strongly that getkiwimail is a scam, because it gives many hits on scam advice websites, f.ex. or


But it's very frustrating for me, there's lots of general advice, and links to report scams, but no list of scams that I can check.  Why the proverbial not?  Why can't I see the results of the reports?


I'm trying to advise someone where there are difficulties communicating, and I have no details other than the word "getkiwimail".

Listing scams is a waste of time. As soon as a scam site is on some kind of definitive list, it is dumped and a new site set up. Secondly, people assume that the "definitive " list is complete... "It's not on the list, so it must be OK".

Much better to educate people to what a scam looks like, and how to check. So you've already taken a couple of steps in that direction... you know what looks suspicious, to check suspicious sites, and that Google is one way to check.
