You can submit examples and offer feedback via the email address or contact form below.

Please note, however, that due to time constraints and the large volume of email I receive, a personal reply is not usually possible. 

Your submissions help me work out what hoaxes and scams are circulating at a given time. Submissions are one of the most important ways that I learn about new hoaxes and scams and chart how older versions are evolving over time. And, don’t worry, if I use the material you submit in an article, any information that could identify you will be removed.

Legacy Site Access

Hoax-Slayer is spread across two domains, hoax-slayer.net, and hoax-slayer.com. (You can read more about why we do this here.)

All new Hoax-Slayer reports published since March 2015 appear here on Hoax-Slayer.net.  However, there are still thousands of reports remaining on the legacy Hoax-Slayer site at hoax-slayer.com

The easiest way to find older reports on a topic is to use the search at the  top of this page. This will search both sites.

Alternatively, you can use the navigation menu below to quickly access category pages that list direct links to older reports on the legacy website.

Nibbles and Bytes

While Hoax-Slayer is tightly focused on hoaxes, scams, and computer security issues, my sister website Nibbles and Bytes covers a considerably wider range of topics and, over the years, has evolved into a rather eclectic publication.

Originally, it was tightly tech focused. But, more lately, I’ve broadened the scope of the site to incorporate a lot more than just tech tips and reviews. I now include photography focused topics as well as general life tips, book reviews, stuff about writing and blogging, and a few personal insights.

I used to cover all of these topics and more across several separate blogs. But, alas, these blogs often tended to get neglected and would languish, sad, alone, and postless, for lengthy periods. So, I decided to condense and consolidate everything under the one blog. And Nibbles and Bytes is it!

You can access the Nibbles and Bytes home page here.
