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... 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.)

    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-)

    This is a new way to send people a virus. The good thing (if I may say) is that the virus does not get directly in your mailbox. But people who follow the link thinking: wow! I received a card, certainly do see a card at the end. But it is a virus. This only affects MS-Windows (big surprise) but hey... it's still is a virus. What kind, I don't know and it really doesn't matter to me. Just watch out for yourself!

    Note that I removed the incoming email since it can very well be a legitimate email address that the virus used to email me.

    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!

    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...
