So for the last two weeks every time I open my email I get e mails from various places around the world telling me that I won a lottery or I have a distant family member that let me a huge sum of inheritance money. Then they ask me for my information. I used to delete them but now I write them back telling them I am not interested in their scams. Does anyone else get them and what doe you do about them? Is it bad for me to write them back? Can they get any information out of me because I wrote them back?

Many times I received such emails, too. One time, I made a search on the name of the agent and it turned out to be one of the wanted person for scam. From thereon, I delete those messages immediately. I think you don't need to reply, just delete it. They will get tired of sending you.. Good day to you!

I just delete them, I don't think they can get any info about you but it is just a waste of time to reply so I have never bothered to do that. They do seem to go in cycles as I haven't had one for a few weeks now.
