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!

    Really... How much would it pay to be a nobody actor in Bollywood?!

    Funny... That's not the first time that I get a post like this on my Drupal sites. Some people think it is so great to use phpBB code that they put it everywhere. Of course, Drupal does not require such nonsense. 8-)

    Note that the place where you can post clearly says that it will be reviewed, I guess the guy did not bother reading anything...

    Next interesting thing... the link uses eBay Italy.

    Of course, the name of the author and the title for the page was total garbage.

    Now, the real reason why I'm posting this... is because I just did a mailing ...

    So... what's the point of this email?! I understand that you may want to send me some scam, but I don't get it... why should I get an email that contains HTML and some long strings of characters that don't even really spell words? What am I going to do with that???

    At times I wonder about those things. Why are they telling me I can watch TV online for free if it is not to sell me something?

    And yes, I can go to http://www.YouTube.com and watch all sorts of things, many from individuals which makes it a lot more interesting that the stupid programmed TV that has no more surprise (surprises stopped when? 30 years ago? everything is recorded and planned on TV now... well, except sport, I guess. That's not something I'm interested in anyway!)

    This one was impressive. Not even one syntax error (i.e. no misspelled words.)

    And of course, it is so often that the director of the FBI contacts me for such things...
