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!

    Here we go! Just a little note that the Yahoo! merger with Microsoft is offering a price of 1 million J pounds (I'm not too sure what a J pound is, btw...) and I think I won too!!!

    Well, I think that's about time since I had a mailbox since like 1996 and have been bombarded by advertising since then... not like having a reliable free email has anything to do with it.

    Oh! The funny part, it was sent to my Yahoo! email, of course.

    Ha! Ha!

    So... settling a divorce and asking me, an attorney at law (right?), to help in the matter... Sounds good. I wonder whether "she" knows how expensive attorneys are. I guess I'll need a little retainer. And since she has $44k... won't be a problem right?

    So... Is Google really going to close my GMail account because of server congestion???

    Obviously, it was sent from a .edu to an undisclosed list of people and yes... Google has so many problems with their servers, I can't believe that they waited this long to finally cleanup their big mess!

    By the way, you have 24h before the bomb goes poof!

    Just noticed today that his one says "EFCC" which is very similar to "FCC" which is the name of the Federal Communication Commission in the US. I'd bet many get caught by that one!

    There you go, not only do I receive this one, but when I check with Google, they (Google themselves) actually ask me to send money to help people there! What a world... I like the name of the guy too! Mr.M.M.W.

    Here we go! How often did you get a customer approaching you saying:

    I have a visa & a mastercard, do you accept those method of payment?

    Okay, first of all, if he's contacting me, he's got to have found my website. If so, he can see what products I have (software, all online) and he can go through the cart and determine what method of payments we accept: Visa, Mastercard and PayPal for most.

    This is neat but I was thinking that maybe he did not try to go to the card. Okay, say that's what happened...

    Now he talks about shipping my products. Remember? I'm selling ...

    Wow! Today I received a scam 5,501 times in a row! It was like a one time shot of the same email 5,501 times.

    Darn! It happened again today. I'm wondering whether that's really the spammers or if something goes wrong in the postfix/thunderbird brains because the message is exactly the same. Today it is repeated only 5062 times, but still. That's quite a bit, isn't it?!

    There is the mailbox screenshot that shows the count:

    There you go... I bet that the content of the .doc is just a form asking me my details (address, phone, age, etc.) Anyway, I just don't want to take the time to open it. Of course, that's TOP SECRET... Probably something fishy hey!?

    There is another message I've got from someone on Facebook... That someone has a brand new account and a picture. That's it. He/she probably knows that the account will be erased quickly. I wonder whether they could legally check such messages since there are many flags (i.e. an email address, a large sum of money, 'investment' related...)

    Otherwise, the content of the message was different from what I usually get by email. Here the person says that my name is on a list which means I'm owed $150k... We'll see how that's true.

    This one is spam on Facebook. This happens quite a bit on MySpace, but not so much on Facebook. Well... Much less.

    So... before you'd get a Connection request, but because most of those people were getting banned, they now changed their tactic. Instead, they send you a little post like the one below. What's funny is that they rarely look much more in your account than to know whether you're male. Maybe they verify your age too. But as you can see they send that to me even though I'm married. Funny part, one once talked to me in a chat session and when I asked "her" (yeah... see what I mean here? "she" may be anyone...) whether she looked at my profile, she said she did not care. Interesting because she would not have had to ask me whether I was married... It's clearly marked in there.

    Now, if I'm correct, Facebook owners have had partying problems too... See the social network post I wrote on Snap! Free Website Hosting, Advanced Blog, Small Business Websites.
