A note about scamming in the private messages


Recommended Posts

Kaudio sent me this (quoted below). It's from a private message he received some time ago, and it has the feel of a scam - perhaps one of those Nigerian/419 scams (read more here). Just be aware that this sort of thing is happening, and that you might receive a solicitation in the form of a private message that you should disregard.

While searching through the net, I came accross your contact address and decided to contact you. I believe and also have the feeling that in todays world, neither race, nationality nor religion will any longer posse a barrier to male/female relationships.

Although, we do not know each other well but I will really like to have you as a friend or pen pal if that is better for you.I am a single lady of 23years old, currently liveing in West Africa. While I hope to hear from you soon,

and also look forward to receiving some information concerning you, your family, country and even your personal life experiences. This will give us the opportunity of knowing each other better and be able to understand ourselves more. May God bless you as I wait to hear from you soon through this email address.

hope you write with love.

Google is your friend :)

over 122 million hits on " have the feeling that this piece of mail will reach you in a perfect state of mind and in a better healthy condition."

The first line from that scam mail

If your unsure if something is a scam google it, and even after that ask someone your trust who knows about computers/internet security.
