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!

    The following is a sample of what you can receive (first time for me!) from who knows who asking you to go change your password or something like that...


    This is a scam, it will actually reproduce the screens from the bank and of course it will expect you to type in your account information. After that, the person can transfer whatever money to wherever...

    This is most certainly why CitiBank blocks access to their login screens from outside of the US. Now that's not a solution since hackers have access to thousands of computers in the U.S. and hackers have much better to go via ...

    Have you been on that island before? Ready to invest right now? Good! I think this guy needs the money.

    Alright, so many errors! First of all, Yahoo! is more likely to send you an HTML email for such a thing. Plus, they would never ask you to send them a password by email, what for?! Not only that, they have a brand and that's Yahoo! with an exclamation mark at the end. And of course, the funniest part is certainly the fact that the person used a verizon.net email address. I'm sure a lot of Yahoo! personnel uses verizon email addresses to talk to Yahoo! users! 8-)

    Interessant... Le Canada cherche des jeunes diplômés de 22 à 50 ans. Il est évidemment possible d'avoir été diplômé recement et avoir 50 ans. Peut-être que les vieux de 50 ans pourront devenir Serviteur de bar. Encore que s'ils ont de la chance, ils deviendront surment Directeur de boîte.

    Bon, en passant tous vos papiers seront fait à l'Embassade du Canada en France. Sympa non? Assez logique de mon point de vue. Bon...

    Je peux pas attendre d'être contacter par mon Directeur de la ...

    This is really becoming sad. Now here they are telling you that kids need to be adopted and if you get them, you'll get close to 1 million dollars... All of that to get your money. Hmmmm....
