I used to get quite a bit of those. But one time I replied to one... Yes, I knew it was fake, but I was wanting to have some fun.. Or try to. I said a lot of mean/sarcastic things in it. But anyway...

There was one time they sent me one and it was a bit scary. Why? Because they used my nick name. :mad: And I had NEVER used my real life nickname anywhere on the internet before (I don't remember using it).

It had the usual b.s. stuff like some rich schmuck got ate by a lion or was drawing their last breath on their deathbed or whatever, a rich person that wanted ME of all people to have some of their money before the bad guys get it yada yada bla bla.

Just mark them as spam... Don't even open them. I think they can tell if you've opened/read them. That just lets them know that someone is there and they can send you more from their other Nigerian 419 scamming friends.

ETA: There are some people that have some real fun with these criminals.

There might be some inappropriate stuff on there. Just so you know. ;)

My best friend said there should be a tax of 1/10 of a cent for every email that anyone sends. A mass mailing to one million people would cost $1,000. But it wouldn't hurt the average user who sends maybe 5 emails a day. Pure genius. Maybe a penny would do it. It's OK by me!

I love spam mail!:p

I remember this one that was apparently from a dying cruel woman with cancer who had a change of heart and wanted me to donate the last of her money to charitie for her, and "only" take 10% service fee:p


I wikied her name and it came up with an american basketball coach.

Believe it or not they get enough replies to be able to pay. It wouldn't hurt them at all.

I don't know what comes after that because I've hung up on the scammer. :tea:

People fall for it all the time. I saw this report on tv, it's apparently a 3 Billion dollar "scam" industry.

Oh I've received those before. From long lost deceased Americans, Africans, some country I've never heard of etc and also an Egyptian timeshare. If only these weren't scams. I'd be extremely rich by now. Oh well.

It probably wont stop scams like this anyway.

I was show a site somewhere where people replied to the spammers and made them send pictures holding up signs saying they were thieves etc to 'prove they were real' and the spammers were actually doing it!

@wantafanta NEVER open those junk e-mails, even if they're not classed as "junk mail". If you don't know the sender, never open it. I got an e-mail in February, I thought it was real (I was curious about who sent it :o), and when I opened it BAM! I had losta viruses on my hard-drive... :( seriously, they don't die! They're like cockroaches! :hea: :mad: :hea:
