I have 1 old e-mail account that gets almost only those kind of scams, plus the ones about updating security info on bank accounts I don't have, or threatning to close my eBay or PayPal account if I don't give them the pin # to my checking account, or something stupid like that.

There was a program here not too long ago, on Dateline NBC, where they did hidden camera sting operations on some of those folks offering money in exchange for some bogus money-transferring scheme. Usually the victim is promised money, but has to pay something up front to get it. They pay up, get a bogus check that bounces and then are out the money they wrote a check for, sometimes thousands of dollars. It was really interesting, though, to see how big these scam groups are, how many layers of personnel they have so that the folks at the top are protected from being found out and how many countries they operate in. Unfortunately, a lot of folks fall for these scams and lose $$$, sometimes their entire life savings.

I sent a reply to one that I got saying I was reporting them for fraud and I got back a long list of "f" you's.

Their email addy's need to be flooded with spam. That'll teach them.

I've gotten them from time to time and at first I would just delete them as spam. then they started to come more often and I would cuss them out royally. One time I played along and then they asked for my bank account info, which caused another cussing out! lol..

Dear Powwow Time users,

It is with sad enchantment I must dutifly inform you of the death of my great grand uncle in law, Huiiuukallwabua Nuiouiaaoiiua IV. The government awaits with bells on to take the $500,390,090,039,533,256,323,522,530,00.95 awaiting in his bank account. But alas, I have found a way to capture this small fortune for my very own, and I need your help....


**** wouldja do it? LOL
