These guys have some pretty decent Geolocation technology that can be integrated into most sites. They can even detect IPs where the scammer has tried to hide behind a proxy - very useful.

On my site, I'm confident we don't have any scammers at all - thanks to forums and sites like this, we can sniff a scammer at huge distance and that protects all of our members.

This is not to question your honesty, but with the amount of information and disinformation going around, I think, it would be a good idea, if you clarified and enlarged a bit on your statements.

And remember that fossiles like me, being practically imbecile with PCs,
only can understand it, if it's expressed in simple terms.

How can you sniff a scammer f.ex.?

Scammers, as hackers, are springing up like mushrooms, you catch one, another one appears
Any app locating scammers, based on IPS or other details is useful, but doesn`t have to exclude a sense of self-protection, the best tool you can use is a minimal sense of caution
