Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Tammy Sorrento: I am Tammy Sorrento CEO of Fireball Approves. Most people call me Fireball or the Anti-Scam Lady.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to launch ‘Fireball Approves’?
Tammy Sorrento : A couple of years ago I was searching for a rental property in Key West, FL for a vacation with my grandchildren. I found a property online I was interested in, but it just seemed too good to be true. After researching the property I determined the listing was a scam. I was mad, but more than that I didn’t want other people to be scammed by fraudulent online ads. Something had to be done. That’s when I launched Fireball Approves Investigations.
