MY DESK: MADISON -

So, with the stock market continuing to rage these days, there are a lot of people interested in investing some of the money they've made.

That's apparently what "Larry" wants to do in the spam/scam email that Jim in Madison sent in for The Spam Report. I could spend a while debunking each of these things, but it does not seem that "Larry" is a very discerning investor and he might want to worry about spammers/scammers coming after him in the future.

"I am nearing retirement and I could use one more big windfall from an investment to truly feel confident I can make ends meet when I stop working," Jim wrote in. "This "Larry" seems to want to invest in an idea of mine. Should I tell him I have oceanfront property in Iowa to sell him? Somehow, I'm convinced this would lead to him asking me for money. Thought you could warn folks that while it may not seem like a scam, copy and paste the words from this note into your browser and you'll see it pops up on a ton of scam sites."

Great job, Jim. Thanks for sharing.

If you have an email you want to warn your neighbors about, please send it to me: mailto:aschrager@wisctv.com and then, just hit delete.

Take care. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Adam
