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!

    Quite interesting email. First the header includes some broken entries with the missing space after the : (i.e. X-EYOU-SPAMVALUE) Then the email itself sounds like the bank can only secure its login stuff with your help. I guess they could not just turn off your account and voila...

    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.)

    This one is yet another about tons of money I just win by magic! Someone just happened to get my email addres, and actually, this email was not even sent to me (look at the To: ... I was on the Bcc:, any reason you can think of?)

    What I laught about is the number of times I received it in my mailbox. There is a picture:

    And before I posted this image on this website I received yet another email from MAGRET WOODS!

    Ha! Ha! Ha! That's too much! I could block these emails, obviously, but I did not and I got another 10 in the past 2 hours. So... Am I going to believe that stuff?!
