Looking for sites that expose scammers, funding fraud, etc

I recently read through the Warrior Eli Hoax
site within a couple of hours. Unfortunately, the site owner has been on break for 7 months or so. Anyone know of similiar sites?

I've always had an interest in Regretsy (closed), Websleuths, the eBay forum threads in which people work together to detect counterfeit items, lies, etc. I've enjoyed some Reddit threads like this too.
Also there are other similiar community forums that I belong to - we all do our amateur detective work to find discrepancies, scammers, fake names and lies.
I'm not looking for news blurbs, scams involving phishing, company scams, craigslist stuff or the like.
I'm really interested in people who fake illness or hardship using funding sites. Stuff like that.
What I like about Warrior Eli Hoax site, is that other readers helped out, there were updates with new leads/information. Not just a news article. I could start from the earliest post and read as the mystery unfolded.
Any other sites like this?
