Sorry I've been away for a few days, but we're back today with a doozy. We've mentioned a few times about a true sign that a simple spam email is actually more of a scam email is the attempt to play on your emotions.
In today's submission from Marcia in Fitchburg, we have the widow, Mrs. Grace Juli Bright, writing to us from a hospital in India where she's dying from breast and blood cancer. She doesn't have much time, she writes, and it was her late husband's dying wish to give away their $15 million fortune to charity. Well actually, Marcia would get $5 million for taking the time and effort to distribute the remaining $10 million to help "orphanages, widows, disaster Victims and to fund churches."
One simple internet search found Mrs. Grace Juli Bright, or whoever she/he is, has been playing this game for the last few years. All it took was ten seconds to find an email she/he allegedly sent back in 2011 when she/he was in a British hospital. In that email, she/he only had $12.7 million to distribute from a Nigerian company.
Another email she/he allegedly sent from last year has she/he with 35 million British pounds. She's in the British hospital in that one, but her return address email is different from the one in each of the other two emails.
I could go on, but let's just leave the final thoughts to Marcia in Fitchburg who sent this to me with the following question, "She sounds like a really nice lady, don’t you think???"
Ok, I can't help it. I'm not convinced Mrs. Grace Juli Bright is a lady period.
If you have an email you want to warn your neighbors about, feel free to send it to me at: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
And then, just hit delete.
