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 found this one quite interesting. This is quite similar to the little problem which happened in the US a few years later: ENRON was covered with debts just like Deawood. Now this email is interesting since it talks about money from a bad guy who wants to invest it in other countries under your name since his name is kinda... in the bad press right now.

    Okay... let's say I'm currently looking for a job. I receive this email and think: wow! 8% of 1 million is US $80,000! Of course, I want that kind of a salary (well most people would want such a salary.)

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