Guest Blogger Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in joining the America’s Fraud Fighters’ community and sharing your writing talent to help educate the public on what they can do to lessen their exposure to fraud. The following guidelines will help you understand the FraudAvenger’s audience and FPF2A’s policies on guest blogger submissions.

Audience tries to reach the broadest range of the public as possible, from young adults just entering their “financial responsibility” years to older individuals enjoying their “golden years.” We don’t expect every blog will appeal to every reader, so we like to have a variety of topics, attitudes and voices to make sure there is something for everyone in each week’s offering.


Our purpose is to focus on payments fraud prevention and on inspiring people to be proactive in strengthening their fraud defenses.  Submissions must:

  • Address payments fraud-related subjects. Fortunately, “payments fraud” covers a lot of territory so any topics that somehow touch on payments either directly or indirectly are fair game.
  • Be written to the public-at-large. Our readers knowledge of payments fraud varies, so try to avoid technical jargon. Explain concepts at a level that a layperson will be able to understand.  All posts should be G-rated.
  • Speak to issues that allow for actions readers can take. Our objective is to encourage people to take responsibility for what is under their control. Please include steps readers can take that address the issues you present.


We will select stock images to compliment your post. This is to ensure that they will be consistent and complimentary to other images on the site the day posted.

Post Length

Generally we are looking for daily posts between 300-400 words, but a few less or a few more are perfectly acceptable as long as they are entertaining and keep the readers’ attention.

Occasionally we will accept longer articles (500-750 words) on topics that require greater detail or topics that support the greater length.  These may be posted as the “lead” article on the site.

Editing and In-Post Links

We reserve the right to do minor editing if we deem necessary as long as it does not change the meaning of the content. This could include removing links that we do not feel directly enhance the content of the article or creating links that point to reference material within the site.


We do not require exclusive rights of your posts. We understand that you may want to use your written material elsewhere or use it for other publishing purposes.

Byline and Biography

We are happy to give you credit for your contribution and will include your name in the byline. We will also post a short bio about you at the end of your post.  This is not to be used for advertising purposes. We allow up to two links to be included with your bio, but reserve the right to remove any link that points to an affiliate program, to the sale of a product or services, or anything we deem to be “inappropriate.”

We do require that you provide to us your name, email address, and phone number so that we may contact you directly to discuss your post, if necessary.

Submission Format

Since all text will need to be translated into an HTML format, please submit content in Microsoft Word format or pasted in the body of an email and we will do the conversion for you.  We ask that you do not include more than one level of bullets or numbering (no sub-bullets under the bullets), if needed at all.

Submission Process

Please notify us of your interest in submitting a blog(s) by sending us a message. An editor will then contact you to answer any questions and to start you through the submission process.

Submission Acceptance and Publication

We will acknowledge receipt of your submission and update you on its approval status. We reserve the right to reject your submission or ask for changes to be made by you prior to acceptance. The decision to post or return for editing will be made at our sole discretion.
