Even worse, though. I forwarded ebay one of those scam e-mails a couple days ago and they wrote back to me saying I should run a virus checker because the e-mail contained a "keystroke virus". They explained that the virus records all my keystrokes and sends them back to the original e-mail sender, thus enabling the person to look at all the data and find any user names and passwords that I typed!! They said if I clicked on the link in the e-mail I was probably infected.
Luckily I hadn't clicked on the link and Norton didn't find any virus. But just be cautious. These scammers are crafty!
==========================================
So spoofing is a major problem we should all keep an eye on.

Here is several major sites to report spoofed emails..

EBAY spoof@ebay.com
PAYPAL spoof@paypal.com
CITI BANK emailspoof@citigroup.com
US BANK fraud_help@usbank.com

The scare they put in you by lines like that is so your friends cannot look at you and say "are you daft!" when you tell them of your soon to be riches

So the bigger the prize the more you need to worry. Foreign lottos are a lose-lose situation.

Nigerian scams
Now these are the more humorous one out there, but even they can scam people once in awhile.
They normally are Nigerian based, but they also tell stories of sadness from Iraq, Kuwait, South Africa, and even outer space(Yes I said outer space Nigerians).

My Dearest,

My name is Edwin Desmond, and I am writing you from my home in Santa Clara, about 165 miles east of Havana,the Capital City of Cuba. Santa Clara is known for two landmarks; The famous Revolutionary, the
Guevera is buried here; and it is home to one of Cuba's largest universities, La Universidad Central "Martha Abreu" de Las Villas. This is a compelling story, and I beg you to be patient and read through to
the end?Please For security reasons, i will advise that after reading this mail you respond through my alternative email address: edwin_desmond @sify.com

I was adopted in 1960, at age of 14 months by Mr. Giovanni Desmond, a Sugar and tobacco millionaire; some say he also made his fortune from the lucrative illicit drugs trade. My adoption brought so much
controversy that Mr. Giovanni was forced by his family to put me into a foster home at age of 5,where I stayed until maturity; Like most Cuban youths, I dreamt of freedom, which every one here knows is called America; like most youths, in time, I joined an Anti-Castro group and that merited automatic 24 hours round the clock surveillance by the Secret Police, but this is also normal in Cuba! My father nevertheless
funded my education through the above mentioned university,where I graduated in law. I am now a lawyer, making just enough to take care of my wife Vanassa, and 3 boys, Junior, Denis, and woodison.

Sadly, My father died in 1998; left only his wife and family (he died childless), and I was not invited to his funeral by his family, but we mourned him deeply;I had no memory of my real father; but I loved him for his kindness to me; he frequently defied his family to
visit me?When I got married, he gave my wife a ring present which we later found out was a diamond ring! His Last Will and testament was read and probated. No mention was made of me and my family. Understandably,I carried on with my life.

Two weeks ago, I received a letter from Lagos,Nigeria a country in West Africa, from a Security Company, and the contents of that letter put me into shock! I kept the letter for a week without mentioning it to my wife. Eventually I revealed everything to her?apparently My late father,Mr.Giovanni had provided for us after all! Mr.Giovanni had bought shares worth about 8 Million USD in an oil producing company in Nigeria in 1978, (when I turned 18) and left it in my name;over time.( I am made to understand that the current market value is far in excess of this
figure?). The letter explained that according to the terms and agreement reached with my late father, the shares were to be delivered to me (The Beneficiary) one calendar year after his death; The Director of Operation of the security company in his letter apologized to me for waiting so long to contact me; information of my father?s death simply did not reach him until a chance newspaper publication alerted him of the fact.

I was then invited to come forward to Nigeria, to claim my Inheritance! The total current value of my shares now stands at approximately USD43 million and rising!But this simple invitation to travel to Nigeria is fraught with problems! I have no International Passport! It is impossible to travel out of Cuba,unless with special permission which will of course take months of paperwork to procure?As an Anti-Castro sympathizer,I have absolutely no hope of leaving Cuba legally?The only option is to leave by illegal ferry to the American Coast of Miami, which is
extremely dangerous?Every one knows that success rate is about 30%, the unlucky get captured and repatriated back to prison. But the rich and the connected have a better chance by using low flying aircraft ( which will beat the Cuban Radar) to smuggle themselves out.
I have decided that I will make the usual underground deal to be smuggled out of Cuba by aircraft, to Nigria,once you confirm your desire to help me.


I therefore desperately need your help!I do know from my profession that this would entail some procedures and paper works.I am presentaly not strong financially to go this alone.My already made plans to be smuggled out of cuba by aircraft would have drained my
savings.Now I need your help and mutual understanding to secure this funds.I need you to contact the security company in Nigeria on my behalf before my arrival.I would like this done before I travel to Nigeria for this prpose.On my arrival we shall immediately secure the value of the Share Certificates from the security company, and sell/redeem the shares for the current market value and deposit the money into your Bank Account.


There is absolutely NO RISK to you in this transaction; I and my family are the ones at risk...Therefore, I will make no attempt to call you by land based telephone,which is routinely bugged and monitored by the Secret Police here in cuba but could call through a mobile line.However,I shall on my arrival to Nigeria begin telephone
conversations with you.

Please I wish to choose you for this venture and I believe you will be in the position to assist in managing this large sum in a profitable venture and also to help create a safe heaven for me,my wife and children by making a residence arrangement for us in your country

In consideration of your expenses during the course of this transaction, I freely offer you 20% of the value of my shares. If you are willing to help me recover my inheritance, please so indicate in your return reply mail and I will follow up with more details of the Security Company's contact address and also more details of the transaction.

Looking forward to your urgent reply,And please know that this transaction is very confidential ,so please do not disclose it to anybody. For security reasons, i advise you respond through my alternative email
address: edwin_desmond @sify.com
===========================================
While they offer some of the largest amounts out there, they are the easiest to laugh at.
Some talk of hardship and suffering trying to pull at your heart strings. Simply put, if they had that much money they would not need a disabled guy from Tennessee to help them now would they?

N.M.E (AKA National Magazine Exchange) scam
Now some would say this is not a scam. I would say it is. Enough people post on this one company I thought this should be included.
NME will get to you by way of a nice envelope that looks colored and layed out like an airmail letter. It is not. They tell you that they need to confirm your entry to a million dollar contest that will cost you NOTHING.
This is what I posted
Quote:
=============================================

Well my wife got a letter saying she should call this number about the million dollar sweep from NME. Well I called and they started in on the line of BS and said 4 times that no purchase was needed then they asked if I had a credit card. Well as no purchase is needed I said NO!. Then they asked about a debit card. I answered no again. They then said I was entered and I may hear something soon and can they have my telephone number. I declined and said if I win just mail it to me.
I, from hearing other stories, knew not to agree to anything and not give out any info, I then did some research on the web and found this info
=============================================
So confirm and give them NO financial info and maybe you will win, fat chance but what the heck

They also like to work under a lot of names, a sure sign of scam like behavior

New Take on the Nigerian Scam
This extremely important email ended up in my junk mail - can you imagine that??!!
Golly, do you think it might be a scam?

Subject : Hello


Dear Friend,

Greetings to you this day, I am writing you urgently for your
cooperation in an issue I need you to handle with me. My name is Mr.
Charles Wales, and I am a banker based in Europe. I was actually
helping a friend Mr. Terry Ford from Zimbabwe transfer some of his
money from the country during the time white farmers where being
murdered unjustly and their properties seized without any form of
remorse from the side of the government before he was killed on the
18th March, 2002. We are sorry about the pictures you are going to
see; http://www.thefarmer.co.zw/headlines.htm
http://www.lind.org.zw/people/jackrussell/squeak.htm
http://portal.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?
xml=/news/2002/03/19/wzim19.xml

After the last general election in the country when the incumbent
President Mr. Robert Mugabe won, he adopted a very aggressive land
reform program. During this period of the Land Reform Act of which
many rich White farmers were killed, the various farmlands were
attacked, looted and burnt down by militants sponsored by the
dictator President Robert Mugabe and in the process they also killed
Mr. Terry Ford in a gruesome manner.

Before his death, he had traveled to Europe to deposit the sum of
£18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million British Pounds) with a bank, as he
foresaw the Looming dangers in Zimbabwe. The amount was meant for
the purchase of new machineries and Chemicals proposed for new farms
in Zimbabwe. This money was deposited in an escrow account in
England for fear of seizure by the Government, as President Mugabe
had declared war on white farmers.

I was the only person that he informed about this deposit since I
was still working at the banks branch as at that time before I was
transferred to another branch. He also appealed to me to ensure that
the funds are safely kept and if anything should happen to him I
should make his fiancée his next of kin since he had no other family
of his own except his little dog. I have made frantic effort to
contact any relative of Mr. Ford for the past two years without any
success, his fiancée died of shock after hearing of his death. At
this point I am contacting you to act as the next of kin/original
beneficiary to Mr. Terry Ford's funds in the bank so that it can be
transferred to your account. I cannot do this alone neither can make
claims to it myself that is why I need your assistance.

If you agree to take up this responsibility, then I will facilitate
the process in making you the official beneficiary to the funds and
you will be required to contact the bank to instruct a transfer of
the funds to your account. I want to really appeal to you that as
soon as these funds are transferred to you, you will be trustworthy
enough to keep it safely and also to keep it confidential. If you
agree to assist me in this matter, you will definitely be entitled
to 15% of the total for your participation. I await your reply.

Best Regards

Charles Wales

Dear,

I am barrister Tomans Godwin a solicitor at law. On the 12st of April 2002, my
client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along
Sagbamu express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost
their lives.

Since then I have made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended
relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful
attempts, I decided to contact you.

I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left
behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by
the bank where this huge deposits were lodged, particularly the Standard Trust
Bank Plc. where the deceased had an account valued at about US$7.5 million
dollars. I have been issued a notice by the bank to provide the next of kin to
my late client or have the account confiscated after three years if not claimed
and We have just one year left.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 1 year now I
seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you
are a foreigner so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$7.5
million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 65%
shall be for me and 30% for you while 5% is earmarked for expenses that will be
incurred during the process of transfer of the fund. I have all
necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I
guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will
protect you from any breach of the law.

Please get in touch with me through my private e-mail: (tomans1@jumpy.it) to
enable us discuss further. You may also, send your phone number so that I can
call you.

I look forward to your urgent response.

Best regards,
Barr Tomans Godwin.

Publishers Business Services
Publishers Business Services has called my house every 45 minutes for 3 days straight to speak to my husband regarding magazines he never requested. They want to confirm information. I have asked them to take us off their list. My husband never requested a call. We are on the no-call list for Pennsy. They hang up and call back again. I just looked them up on the computer:
http://www.complaints.com/november20...vember7.12.htm
http://badbusinessbureau.com/reports/ripoff121934.htm
http://www.ripoffreport.com/results....=&searchtype=0
Turns out they are billing people $700 for 5 year subscriptions to magazines. I called them directly and insisted on being removed from their list or we would sue for harrassment.
Beware!

This is Great
I've gotten a couple of these. It always amazes me that people fall for this stuff. I know someone that fell for the Ebay one. I'm surprised he can cross the street without being killed.

My wins since 5/2004

You people write too fast, I read slow.
Long Live Brent!
