They're king of spamers, they flush my email with their message like a wastebasket. Before I do entertained them, and after a day, almost 5 letters came to my email coming from diffirent sender with almost the same contents. Some are with ttched pictures.. huh. I feel pity to that one who was in a hospital bed, I pressumed her husband. But after few responses again, the email flux doubles, whew!!. By then, I respond with no politeness on their email. Sorry but theyve wased my time.

Don't ever replay to the message that you not know who they are. That what they want to get from you, when you replay them. They will know that the email are active and it will catch by a mailing list. Read at the end of email, usually contain an url address from a mailing list site.

Hello Devilova, It is a plague. I have received recently one saying that my Federal Tax Payment ID has been rejected and trying to phish a credit card number. A chance : I am not from USA ! I looked at the source in order to find the sender -- it was not coming from a "gov" but from a "biz" domain -- and saw that many phrases were hidden in the html message beginning by "I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips No more cake and ale ?" and "Cry havoc and let slips the dogs of war". They hope an instinctive reflex action from people. The favorite targets of these phishers are LR accounts and CC numbers. The strategy implied with your message is different : they want to get an access to your HDD and are probably seeking business data to sale here. The "view this email and get it back to me" implies that you read the attachment... that installs a trojan Virtual Network Communication software in your computer. Sorting their victims -- it proofs that they are making a lot of victims with this email -- can indeed help these hackers, so it would be kind to send back the attachment with your IP and company name ! If you have no company name in your address, I am not sure that they will take the pain to visit your hard drive. Not so crappy.

True. Spam is everywhere. Just ignore it. The very sad thing is that is PAYS (otherwise it wouldn't be so prevalent). People DO actually respond to it and get scammed. They are then too embarrassed to admit it, very often, and though they have lost a little or a lot of money, you never hear about it. The only people who gain are the spammers (and you don't see them boasting about it). This discussion will very likely be deleted, by the way!

Controlling spam is something most of the internet users are struggling to cope with. I receive 100 to 150 spam mails almost everyday and I can't do anything about it apart from deleting it off. I would love to find a way to teach these spammers a lesson but don't know any way in which I can do this. In your case its just too much. Using FBI references the spammer tries to trick you into sending your personal information to him. I can't understand though how the spammer makes money by doing all this.

I have receive lots of email like that, and been a fool to give some of my personal information. This scammers will just get money from you, their not true. Many times they have given me messages like money is already been deposited to western union but i have to pay for the delivery charges. I ask them to just deduct the charges but then will not respond anymore. Another email came and said I have to pay for the processing of the checks and wire transfer.. huh.. i just respond to _ _ _ _ their _ _ _ and stop sending me messages
