Email Scam - Here's how to get rid of it

This is the post about email scam,it popularly known as "419 email fraud" is all over the place ,i mean via internet. You might have received one on you inbox.

Would you fall prey to the scammer trap who are falsely using names of prominent personalities and organizations to victimize you? Of course your reply will be a very loud "No Way!". And then follows a philosophical thinking "I don't have that much money anyway, they can't take anything from me".RIGHT?

I remembered a former co-worker who gets excited while opening his email for a reason: someone from far far away offered a huge amount of money to him. The scammer proposed that he (my co-worker) will just pose as a relative of a millionaire who died in a plane crash and that an email reply together with the form bearing personal and bank account information will commence the fund transfer.

My colleague was made to believe he gets a 60/40 deal. Sixty percent of the hot pie goes to him and forty to the scammer as commission. It was a very tempting offer indeed, yet too good to be true. It started four years ago. Until now, no money is deposited in my colleague's bank account except his own. The excitement eventually subsided.

The 419 email scam has been going on around for years. In fact, I have received similar emails like the one below:

Crime and fraud

Remember no matter who can't ask that kind of question without meeting face to face.The tray scammer used is that anyone of these individuals ask to verify names and Social Security numbers then ask for credit card numbers. If the request is refused, citizens are then threatened with fines illegally.

   The fact is the judicial system does not contact people telephonically and ask for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth or credit card numbers. If you receive one of these phone calls, do not provide any personal or confidential information to these individuals. This is an attempt to steal or to use your identity by obtaining your name, Social Security number and potentially to apply for credit or credit cards or other loans in your name. It is an attempt to defraud you. Crime and fraud is real, so be careful.

Beware of internet fraud,with the convenient of internet it's the worldwide market for the scammer .
