Email Scams

Post by diggingdeeper » Mon Aug 04, 2014 9:14 pm

Email scams are on the rise, some that have arrived recently .....

Deborah Calvert Herman supposedly giving her wealth away.

Liliane Bettencourt (Mrs L'Oreal) also giving her wealth away.

Don't be tempted, whilst the emails appear to be sincere, what happens if you reply is usually a well thought out psychological trap to ensnare you.

Somebody pretending to be the government gateway sent some trash today in the form of dodgy attachments to an email.

Thank you William B. Craane for offering me $200,000,000, unfortunately my pockets aren't big enough so I will have to turn this amazing offer down.
