Those are always fun to get...so are the ones from the FBI, Some other government agency, Nigerian banks, Someone who says you are their heir and has a pile of money for you, Someone who needs your help getting money out of the country, and so many others.


My favorite was one I got from a hitman saying he would not kill me since I was a nice person if I paid him what the other person was paying to kill me.... :D

What a timely topic.  I just got a message from my bank today saying they thought someone had hacked into my account.  So, I called them up and it was really them.  So my little bit of advice is to see what the email address is on the email that was sent to you.  If it's not "your bank" .com ..... just delete it.   BTW, all I had to do was change my ID and PW..... and just because it couldn't hurt, I changed my email address too.

There are two ways to face the future. One way is
with apprehension; the other is with anticipation  .

It is always a good idea to ignore these messages and delete them. Even if you DO have an account with the banking institution in question. NEVER go though the link they provide in the email. ALWAYS open a new browser window and log in directly. People who fall for this usually have their banks accounts cleaned out before they even know it happened.  Never saw it happen personally, but I have heard enough horror stories about it be very very cautious.

The Phishermen took out their cane and went to Phish a large fish.

Messages like this one are sent every day by big scammers.


Also beware of titles like "You have inherited..." or "I need your help to take my funds out of..." or even "I am a Refugee from XXX and need your help"


As I said they took their cane to go Phishing and Scamming.


CaptKirk, thank for remaining us of this.
