Details of Scam Report
Scammer pretends to be a volunteer teacher for an organization helping "at risk" youth. They target sites running good old "links" pages. Tells a story asking for a link to a payload site on behalf of an enthusiastic child named "Christian" who will get a pizza or ice cream party if you include a link. The area of interest the class is "researching" is changed to suit the site they are trying to get links from.
The fake P2E "Pathways to Empowerment" scam site at has no contact information listed, which should be your first clue. Domain owner his hidden through privacy blocks but their ISP resides in the UK (see below for domain info).
The person, likely a disreputable Search Engine Optimization company or individual, carried the scam far enough to volley emails back and forth in order to win confidence of the target victim, and get links to their "money" sites. At least two of the sites the scammer is trying to promote are here:

Good Afternoon, I hope you don\'t mind me reaching out to you like name is Adriana and I volunteer at a youth center a few days a week. The other volunteers and I try and educate the kids while having fun at the same time. the upcoming weeks we are planning a fun activity involving planting a garden. Spring is here and the weather is getting nice, so we wanted to start outdoor activities! I\'ve been looking for resources to make sure we have the best garden in town :) and I came across your page: it has been such a great help...I\'ve even bookmarked it as our top resource! Thanks so much for sharing the terrific information. :) of the kids, Christian, came to me with a resource he found: So far, this page has been very helpful in preparing for the garden (and I know I\'ll be using this article for activities around my house, too). Christian pretty much \"forced\" me into contacting you to ask if you\'d consider adding the page he discovered to your page, since we noticed its not already on there. I told him if you decided to update your page and add the resource he found that we\'d be able to have a \"make your own pizza party\" soon! Thanks and we hope to hear from you soon! Adriana Michaels
