I am so genuinely sorry to read that my friend. It is so annoying when things like this happen!

I'm not worried just find it amusing that spam/scammers try all these tricks without basic knowledge of even making emails/texts etc look half convincing!

there's such a big hole in there sails that the yacht don't even move!

Very low fenbadger

But unfortunately, there are folk,some very clever folk I might add ,who actually believe these scams to be true.

I have worked in the banking industry for 40 years.A director of a large well known business came in to make a payment of £60k to these people .When recd they would send him £1million pounds inheritance back.Who in their right mind sends £60k,out on a whim and a fancy.? We managed to talk him outof it eventually but he genuinely thought he was going to get this huge sum back from them.

It was his own sheer greed that could have been his downfall.Luckily he was stopped in time.If something sounds too good to true then itnusually is .tread carefully.

If they cant put the title of the organisation in the address I get highly suspicious straightaway, and even if its there it MUST be spelled correctly. And then I still don't trust it. There was a thing on FB recently with someone begging on various groups. I'd wondered how they got accepted on them in the first place.

Thanks for confirming that Ken. I must admit to being very suspicious of emails like this, especially if they ask for money.

Hi Ken

thank you so much for checking this on our behalf - I am afraid I do get very suspicious about this type of email although raising money by "crowdfunding" does seem to be getting more popular.

With kind regards.

one is facebook don't respect the cookie code so if post to there from a link like from here and not clicked stay logged in you are still logged in and it will follow you every where like a love sick puppy so have to go back into fb and log out manually also if use fb "messenger" make sure log out/close all of it in settings and clear cache etc on phone it also takes your info off your device

Had a thing while back as rarely use it never use messenger/on my phone had al these people to add? yet some i had no digital connection to don't have any contact details of them yet there there to add!

Other was through a separate email address yet there to add on there!

there is/was a court case in Holland if think about this intrusion where people who have no dealings with fb are having there data trashed by fb just because have someone else they know using it.

So if use fb make sure you clear cookies/log out to break link or what you post here for one will be over there

Scammers are spammers

Phishers are wishers

Lotto scam "winners" are sinners

Our email is too frail!

Hi Sammicat15

That gave me a giggle thanks. It is not just the scams that get me down. I keep reporting to Gmail some of the most disgusting emails that I receive from abroad. Gmail then block them but they soon get new email addresses and start again trying to sell disgusting things!

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken
