Become an Official Hoax-Slayer Supporter
If you find Hoax-Slayer useful then why not become an official Hoax-Slayer Supporter?
In exchange for a contribution of just $5.00, you will receive:
- The knowledge that your payment will help fund my ongoing fight against Internet scammers, malicious pranksters, spammers and other online malcontents.
- Membership of the private HS Supporters Forum, where you can discuss hoaxes, scams and computer security issues, suggest ideas and articles for Hoax-Slayer, discuss fight-back strategies for reclaiming the Internet and a lot more.
After you click the Donate button, you will be taken to the Paypal website, where you can securely make your payment. You do not need a Paypal Account as you can use your credit card if you wish. When the transaction is completed, I will receive a notification email from Paypal.
I will then contact you via email to personally thank you for your contribution and to officially invite you to register on the HS Supporters Forum.
Please note, that this is NOT an automated system. Since you have been good enough to make a contribution to Hoax-Slayer, I much prefer to make direct contact and thank you personally rather than have a machine automatically spit out a form letter. Because I am not using an automated system there may be a short delay before you receive your invitation email, but it should get to your inbox within 24 hours.
Please click the "Donate" button to make your $5 contribution
By the way, just to be clear, this newsletter and the Hoax-Slayer website itself are and always will be completely free. Hoax-Slayer Supporters is an extra and totally optional service that has no impact on how the main site and newsletter are operated.
