Welcome and happy reading!

Since, like anyone else, I receive tons of scam emails and snail mail letters, I decided to present here some of these. All of these (and many more which I just delete) are scams. This means, what the senders have in mind is to racket one of us. And according to what I've seen, they do succeed quite often.

If you have similar letters in your mailbox, either disregard or play with the person knowing that you can't give him (or her) any information about:

  1. Your bank account,
  2. Your address — or any valid address if that matter,
  3. Your family, and
  4. any other information that you judge private or even intimate.

Ha! I say "Your"... even if you don't like your neighbor at all, don't give his information either. The Internet leaves tracks (hackers in the US are being caught one after another!) and you would certainly be in even bigger trouble.

In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy reading these letters as I do myself once in a while. 8-)I do not always add comments with the letters since I usually don't have time to do so, but there would often be a lot of joke to tell!

    Funny... she's not a slut, just in need of a little more love. I guess it depends on your definition of slut!?

    This one was sent to me by one of my readers.

    The links were going to a secure website!

    A rarity, in the very first email, Herbert lets us know that there are irregularities!!!

    What will happen in the next emails?!

    There is another message through Yahoo! I removed the styles, but as you can see, it's someone who has access to US $5.5 million and needs help to take it out of the country... Hmmm....

    Another one... please, send them your ATM info! They need the money to survive in Africa...

    We get those once in a while... but really, we never had anyone writing such a bad email to purchase anything we actually sell (since you know we don't even sell what the guy is asking for...)

    Any any reseller in their right mind would quite easily see through this sort of scam!

    I'm really getting loads of medication emails these days. I'm not too sure what they are looking for other than credentials...

    Or maybe just generate traffic on a site?

    I did not check their sites, since I'm really not interested, and maybe they're simply selling some Viagra for a change.

    Interesting... this one included an entry named Apparently-to: ... with about 50 emails. Yes, the guy used the BCC field, but somehow his mail system (Live?!) included the top-secret emails in the message header anyway!

    This has been going around for a little while now.

    First of all, you don't generally receive emails from Facebook just because someone wants to add you to their list of friends.

    Plus, if you are to add them as a friend, wouldn't be easier just to use the Facebook interface?!

    And of course, if the link does not send you to facebook.com, it's probably not from them!

    So... who changed their password?!
