The Real Truth about your Inheritance

This is the first time I can remember receiving a scam that claims to come from Togo.  It’s the usual story of crooked officials and millions of dollars, which I can have if I just send the scammer some money! Ignore this scammer who will just keep asking you to send money if you make ...

European City Guide 1

These scammers must think I’m daft.  They want the princely sum of 997 Euros just to include me in the “the next and following two editions” of their guide on “CD-Rom – Internet”.  What???  Who on earth searches for a local (or even national) services on a CD-Rom. Just ignore these scammers.

Re:

If my inbox is to be believed, Nigeria is full of wicked people who’s sole aim is to “divert funds” so that I don’t get them.  All I have to do, apparently, is reply to any of these emails and untold riches will come my way.  Or not.  The only money that will exchange hands ...
