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!

    I like this number! 36,759,000.00 MILLION POUNDS. That's quite a lot of money. Probably more than what the Queen has.

    Also, in this one, I like the Yahoo.jp comment at the bottom...

    This is probably not new, but here Mary sends me an email from an account name "idjason" at Yahoo! U.K. tell me that she works at FedEx and does not know what the heck she has to do with my $800,000 dollars. Well! To tell you the truth, I'm not too sure either.

    Now, if you have the time to read on, you'll see who I have to contact... 8-) That's funny! I wonder where Mary found that name.

    Contact Person: Mr.Jerry Springer

    Okay... Un autre email avec une Ivoirienne qui ne sait plus comment s'y prendre donc elle me demande à moi, un vrai pro (des scams). Donc, 12.500000 ça représente quoi déjà? Un vrai pro comme moi devrait savoir. En français, le point représente le séparateur des milliers (tous les trois chiffres). Bon... il en manque juste un. Donc c'est bon, c'est bien 12.5 million de dollars. Par contre, dans sa phrase, le "de" devant "dollar" (singulier, hummm!) est de trop.

    Et bien sur, c'est pour.... son avantage ...

    Bonjour... dans la signature. À mourrir de rire! 8-)

    This is a funny guy! Two emails (well, actually 4 since he wrote to my two distinct email servers but 1 mailbox each time!) send once after another with the same name in the "From:" field, but completely different bodies. Once he's James and once he's Abba, or she. Who knows now...

    Ha! Another novelty (kinda), this isn't 1 or 2 millions of US dollars... Now we're talking serious money! US $45 millions!!! Cool! I could get myself a swimming pool in my back yard with that (including the staff to take care of it and I'd heat it in the winter too.)

    Usually viruses are included in your email and they are easy to detect (for people such as me at least...) with stuff such as: Open the attached document, that's URGENT, from someone you never ever heard of ever.

    This one, of course, I never heard of the sender either, but the difference here is that the "hacker" is asking you to click on a link which will download an executable (for Windows, again, won't work under my Linux box, do you have a Linux box too? That's already 99% protection against these attacks!)

    Not too sure whether this was effective, but some people ...
