Each day,i receive about more than 10 email like this.I dont believe at all.But when it can a lot,it bring us problem.I have been go out overseas for one months when i back.My email is full with this kind of email.I spent one day to check my email.My solution is simple.I just setup my outlook express message rules to filter any email that contain milion dollar and delete it.Or you may k9 anti-spam software,it will block all the spam email.

I have ever risen to the bait many times ,the other day ,I was charged 30yuan mobile phone bill by a radio programme.If you can answer their questions .you will get a sum of money ,so I dialed them time and time again.but I couldn't reach them.After I put down the phone.the information desk tiped me that I had been charged 30yuan.

Email filter don't really work all the time. They are now using my friends' email addresses or names too. Plus there are times that the system deletes personal mails as well.

Challenge-Response filters work all the time. Just make sure you whitelist yourself the addresses for any newsletters you might be getting (they won't bother to verify themselves).

Ah yeah, I stopped believing them the moment I saw that a so-called multimillionaire used a yahoo free account to email me. *LOL* Plus, I also tried calling them up and the phone was inexistent. Plus most of these are computer-generated.

There are authorities you can forward these to, but I'd only suggest doing so with a "honeypot" e-mail address (a "trap" for spammers/phishers). The address is enforcement (at) sec (dot) gov I wrote a review on CNET back in April on abating spam, and it was one of my best-received reviews ever. Read it here: http://reviews.cnet.com/5420-3513_7-0.html?forumID=104&messageID=2409256&threadID=222541

I have the same problem too. In my yahoo I report it as spam-but they keep on sending in different forms. Perhaps there are a thousands of them. I don't bother reading them anymore and just delete them. Its annoying sometimes.

I use Gmail.com. It automatically filters the spam, but when I look at the spam folder, I see a bunch of scam emails you mention arriving every 2-3 minutes.
