    Post your funny scam emails from your Junk folder (REAL or IMAGINARY):

    I was contacted by a Jamaican man who informed me that I had won 1.5 million dollars. I asked him why I had won the money and he told me it was for being a "model citizen". All I needed to do to claim my money was to give him my credit card.

    These e-mails appear often in my yahoo account, there was one of them that has the writer noticing 3 deposits to a bank account.

    Yeah, amazingly they always involve either money, or verification of your identity through email.


    This one was kind of funny:

    So the Federal Reserve is a subsidiary of the IMF, AND has personal accounts in Your_Name? And they directly control family inheiritance?

    Here is a very funny conversation with a scammer. Beware of naughty language. The rest of the blog is similar stuff.

    To us, these letters now arrive Google-translated into Estonian, which usually renders them nearly incomprehensible but still devilishly funny. Unfortunately, that humor would be mostly lost on an English-language forum.:sad:
