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!

    Alright, so... I'm not too sure when these started but it is still the same woman: Kelly (that sounds good), 37 (since several years, there is a problem here...), Female (well... who knows, maybe that's good.) What I'm thinking is to keep an account of when I receive these emails to see whether it ever increases in the age part.

    Oh! And to stop these crazy emails, we can send a letter to Panama. You know... that Kelly in Folsom... she has some link with Panama? Maybe through the Jail?! (hey! never heard of the Folsom Prison?)

    Good one! 1st the subject is "bonjour" but the entire email is English.

    Then, the email says "for my female client." How often do you hear such a sentence from an attorney at law?

    Funny... 8-) I mean, you know, someone named Bobo... that sounds funny to me. In French, "bobo" means a "little hurt". A word with use with small kids. Anyway... That's a normal Arabic name. I have a friend named Bibi, after all.

    This one was not a direct scam. Instead, it was a spam email about your USPS package (that they call UPS...) and you had an attachment with a virus. The virus is most certainly a trojan horse that reads your keyboard and other such data to get your credentials with time.

    Peugeot... Faillait que je mette cet email ici car j'ai grandi juste à coté de Peugeot. Alors quand je vois une email qui me dit que j'ai gagné une Tombola de chez Mr Peugeot en Angleterre... Ça me fait bien rire. 8-) Surtout que le siège de PSA est à Paris, pas à Londres.
