YOUR ATM CARD!! (CALL TO CONFIRM) 1

Coupon NO.NM/896161/WOP

Confused?  You will be if you’ve read the previous entry on this blog.  This scammer is also confused – just as confused as the previous one and also having an identity crisis. The email claims to come from “Song Lile” (a well established scam) but is sent from “shaunamary@eircom.net”.  Ok, so “shauna mary” from Ireland ...

Mr Harry Doff is having a severe identity crisis.  He signs his email twice “Mr Harry Doff”, “Mr Mike Smith”.  And he can’t decide which organisation he works for either – “Micro Dayzers Corporation” or “Netherlands the Lottery Company”.  Just to add to his confusion, he writes from Italy to tell me all of this. ...

Last Notification

How odd.  “Microsoft Department UK” write to me from Taiwan to tell me I’ve won £500k.  It’s that email address again – working relentlessly on my behalf. Guess what?  It’s a scam.  There was no draw.  The scammers don’t want to give you money – they want to take it from you in the form ...

Dear Lucky Winner, Vision 20082008

I must have the hardest working email address on the planet. Everyday it wins me at least one lottery or draw. Do you think I should give it some kind of award?  Or maybe I should allow it to retire in peace to a computer on a sunny beach surrounded by lots of gorgeous girl ...

ONCE PROMO 2008

I’m a millionnaire.  A million Euros winging its way to me.  That email address of mine really works hard, doesn’t it? I’ve quite lost count of all the lotteries and draws it’s won this year.  Perhaps I should retire it before it starts to feel overworked. You’ve probably realised by now that it’s all a ...

Nationale Postcode Loterij 5

Oh look – Father Christmas sent me a pressie yesterday.  I’ve won 800k Euros – gift wrapped I hope.  For some strange reason my “email address” has won a “postcode loterij”.  I thought my email address floated around etherially in cyberspace.  Now I’m told it’s gone and got itself a postcode.  Perhaps it’s decided to ...

YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS HAS WON THE TOYOTA PROMOTION 2008 1

Yippee – it’s Christmas and I’ve won £600 grand.  Or maybe I’ve just won a car.  Who knows – clearly the scammer who wrote this email couldn’t decide.  And if I have won a car, they’ve clearly been keeping it for a while.  It’s new – they claim – but it’s a 2007 model!!  I ...
