In Off-topic

I checked my e-mail a little while ago and had me all excited for about 2.3 seconds .... It really grinds my gears that people do this kind of stuff! Anyways I just wanted to give a heads up and see if anyone had some similar (funnier) experiences with this stuff.

Not really a scam, but some asshole that knows me send me some email that was from "Usmilatiary corp" or something, and said i had to go to iraq blala, then said you will have to report to porcupine mililitary station. Yeah, like this little hick town would have a military station. then I click on the site, get some baby with a tommy gun, says "YOU GOT PWN3D!21!" Or something. Just a waste of time, pretty much

Did you ven take part in such a lottery?

Not taking part, but winning it... doesn't sound that a little stupid?

I get tons of junk mail every day and sometimes it tells me I won the lottery or I'd get a university degree for free... I delete those without even opening the mail. Because if you open them they'll know your address is valid and keep sending you stuff.

I like when I get the one saying I won the British lottery....



Yea I dont even bother opening them if they smell like bullshit.

They just don't give up!! I sent them another email with the link to "The Proof".... And I just got another saying "The proper authorities have been notified and we thank you for your concern, now just provide your full name and address"

ARG. I hate paypal scams. I hate them. I just got two in my email account. One was like, "Someone from a foreign IP tried to access your account" and one was like "" has be added to your account".

Do they really think I'm dumb enough to click on their fake link (expecially when I hover over it and it ISN'T paypal)??

Here's a good one. "Response Required".


I am Mrs. Juliana Jones I am a dying woman who have
decided to donate what I have to you. I am 59 years old; 2 years ago I
was diagnosed for cancer, immediately after the death of my husband Mr.
George Mason Jones, who has left me everything he worked for while in

I have been touched by God to donate from what I have
inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of God, rather
than allow my relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds ungodly.
Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God to
forgive me and I believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be
going in for the cancer operation any moment from now.

I decided to
WILL/donate an amount that will be disclosed to you later for the good
work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege
and also for the assistance of the widows.

At the moment I cannot
take any telephone calls right now due to the fact that my relatives
are around me and my health status. I have adjusted my WILL and my
representative is aware I have changed my will and he will arrange the
transfer of the funds to you. I wish you all the best and may the good
Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always
extend the good work to others.

Contact my representative who is in
person of Mr. Mark Johnson with this specified email;
and inform him that I have briefed you about the
Will and he will inform you of the amount I am willing to you for the
good work. I know I dont know you but I have been directed to do this.
Thanks and God bless.

NB: I will appreciate your utmost
confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I
don't want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. And Also I will
be contacting with you by email as I don't want my relation or anybody
to know because they are always around me.


Mrs. Juliana

I'm surprised. They managed to master basic grammar.

I always get an e-mail that says i won a 60 Inch HDTV and all i need to do is pay the $100 Warehouse Fees and it's mine.

And after paying 100$ they unfortunately had to move the warehouse to Ghana or somewhere. You'd have to pay 3500$ shipping to get your FREE TV.

Anybody who falls for stupid scams doesnt deserve money. what? my bank account ifno? sure, here you go.

I like how they incorporated the word "God" and "the good lord" into almost every paragraph.

Who would really spend free money on "the lords work" anyway? I'd either pay bills, buy video games and other "ungodlike" products.
