Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Thursday, October 27, 2005

I have "won" yet another lottery.

Needless to say this is just a fake, sent by a scammer.

The idea being that those who are daft enough to respond, will then be tricked into parting with a "processing fee".

Once this money has been conned out of the hapless victim, the scammer disappears never to be heard of again.

If you receive one of these, throw it away.

It is worthless!
