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!

    Good one. That is, there are quite a few things here that are quite funny...

    "However, I got your email information on your Hotel contact list." I'm not too sure which Hotel he's speaking about... With my email address at SourceForge.net? Hmmm...

    "Total amount involve is $150,000,000 million usd." Not too sure how to read this one. Is this $150 trillion dollars? Or he meant only $150 million? Quite frankly, if that's only $150 million, I just won't waste my time.

    Today I got a message on my answering machine and I was wondering what it was about. So I checked out the website and noticed after a couple clicks that the service was actually not free. I have no idea what the site really is about, but when I saw stuff for sale, I started to wonder. I guess that in the long run it somehow pays since they are still in business and according to a blog I read, they have have been in business for a while. Especially since they are getting financed by others and that for big money!
