Amerikanska Donation Drive 2014
Posted by Sandy on Friday, May 16 2014 @ 14:48:55 CEST (739 reads)
Amerikanska Site Updates Current: 500 SEK  from 2 anonymous donors
Goal:
 3000 SEK

__________

Those who've been here a while know what this is. It used to be an annual thing this time of year, started by the founder of the site, Flame. I, myself, ran a donation drive in May 2009 & 2012. I've been paying for the site out of my pocket the other years, but feel that it's time to resurrect the donation drive tradition, since Amerikanska is really your site. If there is not enough interest to help me keep the site going financially, I am considering closing it down.

Amerikanska is a non-profit and ad-free site. All work on the site is done voluntarily.

However, hosting a website costs money.

Currently, it's 1500 SEK per year (the costs have not increased since I took over the running of Amerikanska 7 years ago). That includes costs for hosting the site and the domain.


If you're able, please help keep Amerikanska going with a donation to help cover these costs. All donations go to the cost of hosting only, no one is paid to maintain it, not even me. Only a maximum of 3000:- in donations will be accepted. In the event it happens to go over that, additional donations will be held to pay for the domain name and/or held for next year's costs.


Donations are voluntary, helping to keep the site both ad-free and free to use, which it has been since 2001.

Warden Message - Phishing Emails claiming to be sent by the IRS
Posted by Sandy on Friday, November 20 2009 @ 13:14:12 CET (4003 reads)
U.S. Embassy Information and Advisories Dear American Citizen: 

It is come to the Consular Section's attention that U.S. citizens living
abroad are receiving e-mail messages purportedly from the Internal
Revenue Service requesting personal financial information.  Please note
that the IRS never requests information from taxpayers in this manner.

There is a new phishing scheme which is targeting non-resident aliens
(NRAs) by requesting that you complete an attached but fraudulent
W-8BEN. The official form W-8BEN does not request bank account details.
A correct copy of the W-8BEN can be found on the IRS website:
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf.
