I get a least 3-4 of these every week, all from different email addresses - and if I've just posted an ad somewhere, I get flooded (my highest count was 8 in one day). If I get something that is an obvious scam like this one, I just tell them that I know it's a scam, then click the SPAM button and delete it. An unfortunate part of selling on the internet.


By the way, I have noticed a recent trend of scammer's using women's names. Used to be all men's names. I guess they think we will trust a woman easier than a man.

Well to tell you all the truth I have YET to get a scam letter~!
I have my E Mail set up on Medium High to Block E Mails at my ISP~! And every day I look at the list and if I don't know who there are from, or not interested in things,, I DELETE the E Mails from my ISP's server NON come into my E Mail box
So I have yet to receive ANY scamming letters I am not even interested in reading or hearing from or even want to read what they have to say.. They are Deleted into Cyber Space never to be read~!!!
