Re: anyone got a email

Got this today. Source is yahoo.uk.

I am almost positive that the amount listed is what it cost to wire that guy the money. I didnt give my card number or anything but the website that it links to is fake.

Re: anyone got a email

ummmm let's see. All I need is your credit card number and expiration date and I'll send you some money.

Did you fill out the ebay questionaire too?

Don't forget to send them your bank account number, routing code and PIN while you're at it . . .

Man this stuff sucks, why doesn't someone do something to stop all of this crap?

Re: anyone got a email

How can they have already charged your credit card if they don't have the credit card number?

It definitely IS a scam. Isn't there somewhere to report this?

Re: anyone got a email

I got the same message with the same wording just today. I've had many others with similar wording. I assume all unsolicted emails are scams or fakes. I never reply, even to remove myself from a mailing list. If you reply, then they know that they have a live body at the other end of the email address. So don't reply to anything that is not from a friend. Look carefully at anything that purports to be from eBay, or Microsoft, or your bank even. Most of them are scams.

Just delete it like the generic viagra, get rich quick, refinance your home ads.

1) Good point - forgot to mention this to stegen

2) You forgot the all important 'add 2'-5' to the length of your penis' solicitations

Re: anyone got a email

no way, you have to click the button and give them the info. this happened to a friend of mine and he did not do it and got charged. then they said the cops would come because of the child porn thing and now he is moving to GA

Re: anyone got a email

I keep getting the ones that say, 'Shorten your penis by 2 to 3 inches. Make her more comfortable.', but then, that's just me.
