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!

    Okay... the camps and stuff isn't funny stuff but as you can see this person is using it, not me! What is funny is that two different names appear in the email. Just as if two different people were talking here. Not only that, there are different matters which have nothing to do between each others. Quite a mess! 8-)

    The joke is at the end... I don't recall getting a massage while reading this email, did I?!

    Sie haben €1.000.000,00 gewonnen! Yeah! Right! Well... I put this one because it is in German and I do not receive that many of these in German 8-). Now, notice that the return path is an email address in poland. And the person to contact is in England. What kind of a German Lottery is that?!

    WARNING: This following email has nothing to do with ITE. This is some scammer who either wants your money or wants to use your bank account to launder money. Note that when you read this email it sounds like that company, ITE, is selling pretty much everything there is.

    Chain letters... Before you'd get those in your mailbox. Now you get that all over the place from the Internet. There are many pyramid schemes available. You could find a new one every hour no problem!
