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!

    Interesting... This one is some sort of phishing alright, but the thief is not trying to get direct access to your account. Well... maybe this is the first step. At least, on the first page they do not ask you anything too important. Your name and phone number...

    So I filled the first page... and on the 2nd page there is another form which asks for your your full name, credit card number, the expiration date and the "ATM PIN" (they call it Electronic Signature!) So here we are. They can then go to an ATM and use your PIN to get some cash. Because using a credit card online, most ...

    50.000.000 Millions Euros. Ceci veut dire 50 Millions de Millions non? Je suis content d'avoir gagné alors! 8-)

    Remarquez aussi l'anglisisme: "COCA COLA COMPAGNIE".

    Autre chose... je ne me souviens pas de prix tels que 50 millions d'Euros (325 millions de Francs). Quand les compagnies privées se mettent à offrir de tels prix, je crois que les employés vont se facher tout rouge! 8-)

    Interesting... so you want to order something from my company?! At this time I have just one software and a few weapons for sale... and I don't forward quotes, you buy directly from my website! (see here) So... what's that quote about?!

    Ha! I see! 8-) Yeah... look at the header... Notice the "To: ..." field? Wow! "undisclosed-recipients:;" Does that mean Fernaandez sent that email to 1000 companies?! He must be in need of a lot of quotes!

    Not too sure what that subject means. I guess I've been missing big time about all of these lotteries. I thought only the states reserved the right to have lotteries!? Did I miss something? No really... I'd like to make millions too! Ho, but wait! I could just be waiting for emails and send my info to them once I won! 8-) Yeah! Let's do that!

    Hmmmm... But how trustworthy is this one? The email is at aim.com not gmail.com and the "To: undisclosed-recipients:;" sounds a bit... Hmmm! Was I not the only grand champion!?
