Hi!

I have another video up, this one shows how to find the IP of the person (or robot) that sends you an email using. The idea is to help identify potential scams and protect your time and money.

I show how to find this information using a few different email clients in order to demonstrate the concept.

The last part of the video is just a couple of my experiences with a scam artist, and someone that I thought was a scam artist.

If you like these videos, don't forget to subscribe to my channel so you can receive a notification every time I upload a new video, which I'm trying to do about once a week.

Saludos!

Thanks :) Dec 2, 2014

You could elaborate on some of your videos and make them into webinars, really. Would be a good idea.

Happy to help! Dec 2, 2014

I'm glad to hear that these videos are helpful. It's my new hobby and something that I really enjoy doing.

I have considered doing a webinar, or even writing an ebook, but I have no idea where to start. I like the idea of making a little money off of these (YouTube's has promised an unbelievable $1.41 thanks to ad revenue), but I need to look into it further.

The next video is going to be a follow up of a previous video where I installed some analytics programs into the free website I built, and did some light SEO. I suppose after that I could go more into how social media can help bring traffic to the site, and jobs to your schedules. That has been how I'm receiving most of my work these days.
