Scam Letter

I am a member of a social website. I often received attractive offers and I considered these offers to be scam in action. I am just wondering why there are so many people fell prey to such scheme.

This message was sent to me on July 18, 2010 at 4:24:17 am. Before I could open the message, the sender has already deleted some pertinent information.

The format of the scam letters are quite similar, just the name of the sender is different. I will show you more letters when I have the time to dig out the data from my file.

Readers, next time when you received similar offer letter, you know it is a scam because there simply cannot be so much money of the same nature flowing thru the internet. The story is similar, probably copy from other scam letters.

I append below the message I received earlier:
