    Funny E-mail scams

    Lmao. What is your favorite E-mail scam? I just got this and I wonder if anyone falls for something this stupid.

    Dear Beloved ,

    GOD BLESS YOU,I am Mrs. Rose Smith. I am married to Dr.H Smith who worked with a construction company in Asia for twenty Years before he died in the tsunami disasters, we were married but without Any children.Since his death I decided not to re-marry and presently I am 67 Years old.

    When my late husband was Alive he deposited the sum of $4.2M. (Four Million two Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Security Company.Presently this money is still with the Security Company and the management just Wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather Issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I cannot come over.

    I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment Cancer of the lungs in a hospital,I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to Live. I want a person that is trustworthy that will utilize 90% of this money to churches,orphanages and widows around the world but in my name Mrs. Rose Smith As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Company.

    I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here and Keep this contact confidential till such a time this funds get to your Custody, this is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth. I await your urgent reply.

    Regards

    Mother Rose Smith

    It's kind of sad that someone would pose as an old woman with cancer who lost her hubby in the tsunami.

    With all the people on the internet the answer to how many would fall for it, would probably be shocking.

    One where they tried to snatch my paypal password. I almost fell for it, too. But Firefox saved me. *hugs Firefox*

    Usually, my Email is just clogged with it's 17,500 unread emails. Maybe I should just get a new account.

    What was this one? Was it one where they sent you a paypal looking email and asked you to verify the authenticity or something like that?

    They said someone had used it, I checked my paypal and there was no record. Obviously a keylogger sent to me or something.

    Yes, 17,500 unread emails. You want screenshot proof? I get Hooters (sometimes fun to look at, rawr, LOL!), Restaurants, Dying People, John Edwards (Dammit), and some others. Oh, and viagara.
