Money & Sex Emails

Like many folks who are online daily, we get a fair amount, LOTS of junk and spam emails. As prolific as spammers are in sending unwanted and potentially dangerous emails, we are very skilled in the Delete function — these recent messages are exactly as received with a deleted link in the second (discretion advised).

This one offered $ . . .

Here's an invite we  ignored. . .

Clothing Optional Party in our Hotel Room
Hey, my friends and I are throwing a clothing optional get together!
So far we have 6 girls and 2 guys coming. We need more guys and girls. You're welcome to just watch if you don't want to participate in the fun. Singles and couples are invited. You must be 21 and over. All guys will be wearing protection, (aka condoms) no exceptions. Go to xxxxxxxxxxx dot org and search for it and you will see it. I posted the address and more info on there. If you have any questions let me know.

We were advised about a British tax refund although we live in the U.S. and invited to a sex party . . .

So far, I haven't gotten anything like that thank goodness! But anything or anyone that I don't recognize, I just delete. And I NEVER read forwards....they get deleted too.

I like that GMail traps almost all SPAM so that I seldom notice it. I do take a quick look in that folder before I delete just to make sure something didn't get tagged wrongly.

I've never had an e-mail like that before but thanks for the head's up. I usually delete anything that even remotely looks like spam.

I delete a lot of things that looks bad. My son never writes me but he is always recommending me things as they stole my address from his mail. I figure if I delete something important that they will send it again. You have some interesting things sent to you. I hope you get your taxes paid soon to the neighboring country.

That comes and goes and lately it's been a calm period. Otherwise their much like Your spam.

One popular scam here is to send an email looking just like the one our bank would send and the mail is saying that something is wrong with the account and could we please send them our account numbers :-) The odd thing is that people do???

Have a great day!

There's always the popular Nigerian spam "Dearest Friend, I am the wife/ daughter/ assistant/ surviving concubine of the late Beloved Generalissimo/ President/ Reverend Mbatu ToogoodtobeTrue, and he instructed me in His will to find a person of the mostest high moral standing to disperse his five million dollars in legal estate dollar funds."

Daisy said...

I haven't had anything like that for quite a while. I think my email filters out most of the spam I get.

Lois Evensen said...

Yep, we get the same stuff. Click. Trash. :\

Every once in a while I glance at a spam email that catches my eye. For a time I was getting a lot of invitations from some young lady who wanted me to connect to her email to receive naked pictures of her. As always I was highly amused. Anything ridiculous makes me laugh.
