Hmmmm, new pc, new car, holiday.....
Damn, and the attachment wasn't even malware!
I've got the same ticket number so we'll have to share it
Only £277,939.50 each, hardly worth claiming You can have my share
LOL, thanks for sharing Cloned one!
Haven't seen one of these scams in quite a while.
Do ya think some people will still get sucked in?
On another note, I've been using Windows Live Mail Beta for a while now for checking my email. Microsoft's anti-spam signatures are seriously good. I'd say 90% effective.
Don't forget your long lost American cousin - Hugger!
I see them nearly every week, and that's not counting the spam folder
Yes, unfortunately for them And not just with lottery scams. It's a mixture of greed and/or naivety !
I'm very surprised with Yahoo's spam filter (web mail). In the past five or six months it has been almost 100% for me, just a couple FPs. Before that, it was pretty bad.
In my POP mail, my ISP's filters catch and quarantine 99-plus of incoming garbage, the vast majority of which, these days, relates to ED medications. Yahoo's filters seem to be fine, it's rare that I have to tag anything in my inbox as spam.
Not there's much there -- I don't use my Yahoo addy anywhere except as an "emergency backup" for when my POP mail becomes unreliable or even unusable, such as if there's a major server problem that's taking the ISP unusually long to fix, or if they switch to an overly aggressive anti-spam service which is blocking (and at one time, even bouncing) legit mail.
The fact that they're still using such ploys says that there's people still falling for them.
Absolutely correct. The world is full of suckers, but I would not have thought that the Wilders battalion have many in it.
You would be surprised at the number of new cars, fantastic holidays and huge cash amounts that I have won over the years, but reluctantly declined wearing my Samaritan`s hat, to give others a chance.
Here I check what emails are at the server with Palmail which can show and delete anything at the servers end.
I only bring through junk on my ISP account that has an attachment hoping it's a new malware sample and upload if not detected.
