Hi Leesa!

Thank you for posting this because it's good to know in case I see something like this in my mail box.

Isn't some of this spam UNBELIEVABLE?

I keep getting some from SKYPE; telling me they need more personal information from me. And it's coming from another country. I just keep deleting them.

Have a great weekend!

I know what you mean! I didn't know they come and look for you on Skype, too! Thank God I haven't received stuff on Skype! They're awful!!

Good to delete without clicking on anything.. I went to the FBI website and almost reported it but the during the process my internet connection went off and the info I typed in was lost-- So, I just sent it to the Fraud Dept. at Earthlink instead- where I report all my spam/fraud mail like this- the more serious sort.. Not the attorney from Nigeria stuff... UGGH!

This is just too precious to pass up, Leesa! The scammers don't know what else to do to rip people off. And to think that there WILL actually be people that WILL fall for crap like this! Thanks for posting it. I had a good laugh, instead of getting angry. Take good care. It's raining and stormy and VERY cold this weekend in L.A.

Leesa said...
