Today (12/30/2006) I reviewed this site's traffic. In general, traffic has increased, due to the popularity of the dating scammer section. I noticed that the number of visitors grew steadily but the transfered data volume had gone up big time.

The following is a statistic for the month of December 2006, as produced by awstats. This tool tries to filter out robot visits by google or yahoo's spiders etc. All visits are supposedly 'human' visits.



You can see the number one most active visitor is 66.249.72.113. I used web site www.ip2location.com which said that this visitor is from New York (and belongs to Google, Inc.).
I suspect that this is some software. You can see that this visitor requested 5481 pages, and the total number of hits was also 5481.
Now, a regular visitor would request maybe 100 pages, and each page has on average 5 graphics, which would lead to 5 * 100 = 500 hits.
If a user loads 5481 pages and also only 5481 documents, then this means that the user did not load the images, and also did not load style sheets or javascript include files. In other words, this is not a human visitor.
For example if you look the last visitor in that table (IP number 64.233.*.*) then you see 533 pages were loaded, 4490 hits generated. Apparantly the average page had 4490/533 - 1 = 8 images.

Now the interesting part is that IP numbers 2 and 3 in this statistic both are resolved to come from the Ukraine! The ISP is NETCATHOSTING. I wonder why they hit my web server so heavily. You can see that the transferred data volume is huge - nearly 1.7 GB from 195.225.177.80 and 195.225.177.61 combined.

I will have an eye on these 2 IP numbers and possibly block them from viewing this site. Obviously this is not a human viewer, since the number of hits is identical to the number of pages requested.

I received a scammer email claiming she obtained my information from this site. I was not careful enough and had left my email here. Knowing this, I suspect that some of the possitive entries could indeed be from scammers themselves, trying to persuade (YOU) to give them a chance to take your money.
The way to look at it all is this way, if you were the scammer, what would you do to outwit your opponents and dupe them out of greenbacks.
Surely they would want to try to regain your confidence by posing as individuals claiming 'What the hell, I'm going for it. What do I have to lose?'
I have had numerous types of scam emails with some of the most outrageous claims and dialogue. Yes it would be nice to put a few beneath a noose, but what kind of international law and multiple country cooperation could we expect to stand?
It is a journey worth taking but I see it as a lifetime effort.
As far as $9.00 a gallon here in the US? I would agree there is going to be an increase, but the oil market is now in Futures. This means it is no longer a supply and demand commodity but a calculated one. (Fluctuates by predictions) I don't believe the worlds financial markets will accept that figure. Ecconomies are dead without the poor mans money. That is one of the reasons why the bail outs are not working.
(Making a plethera of subject matter in my comment, sorry for not being one subjected, and sorry for also being off topic of scammers for a brief moment.)
