The WOT Scambusters award goes to those members who have discovered and reported threats that could do harm to others’ computers, personal data and wallets.
These hardworking members use their own time, with no compensation from WOT, to seek out and expose dangerous links. The entire WOT community benefits from their efforts. This award is our small way of saying thank you and to express our appreciation for what you do.
