Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

Here we go folks, another fake lottery win has dropped into my mail box.

I get around 4 of these a week, sometimes several from the same company.

How lucky I am!

The bottom line is, that it is a fake; were I to respond, and to try to claim the non existent money, then they would try to charge me a "processing fee".

I would of course never see my "winnings", as they don't exist!
