I never reply. Don't want to verify that they hit a live address.

I've been getting several a week lately. Almost all go directly to my spam box, but a few slip by so I send them to my spam box directly.

My wife and I have both received a message from our son's address with just an URL in the body. She clicked on it and our anti-virus program went crazy. I'm not sure what is going on. He is a 100% MAC user. On the ones I've received it's always sent to the same five or six addresses.

I got that same one a few months ago, but it came into my inbox, for the most part my spam actually goes there the first time, and I never check it.

Got this one today. It truly made me laugh out loud.

OMG how have u been? I know we havent chatted in a while! totally my fault.. this computer im using freezes all the time. i have tired ot email you a few times with no luck.. ach! sooo sorry.. so whats been up? i am finally moving near you in a couple days.. i hope u didnt forget me? its me amdison lol.. in case u DID forget, we met on ms or cl not long ago.. so im gonna be living right near you and i dont know ANYBODY OMG SHOOT ME! i have my uncle and aunt there but thats not the same.. so can u show me around? help me find a job lol.. i get there next friday late afternoon.. im gonna nee dyour cell number also..ps - im recently single too so u can take me out and show me some real fun * wink wink * hahahha! so anyways im soo nervous about moving. its a load off my back that im gonna know someone there though. so i am happy we met online hehe I am hoping u dont have a girlfriend.. i am not a big fan of drama and stuff like that so just tell me if u do..SO I kinda think we should chat a little bit more before we meet. just to make sure we are not awkward and stuff. although i can talk forever about anything with anyone lol. u will notice that right away when we meet. so are u free friday to help me move some boxes and stuff? i hope so since i wont know anyone maybe u could also introduce me to some of you friends? are they nice? i am cool with gurls and guys lol.. guess u could say i am bisexual but whatever what girl isnt these days..so back to YOU mister... remind me what u do for work? for fun? what are your hobbies and what do you like sexually ? we have so mucht o get ot know about each other in such little time lol! as i mentioned i recently broke up with my ex. we were together for about 6 months but there was too much drama and my friends and fmaily hate dhim. he had no job and was quite disrespectful.. was also pretty lousy in bed.. i like foreplay and he always just wanted to go right to sex.. at least get me wet first ya know? selfish idiot. anyways so i feel free again now that i am single but i do kinda miss having that special someone to cuddle with ya know? so ur probably wondering how come i am moving right? well its a long story.. basicly i am broke for starters.. add to that the fact that i need to go back to school AND the fact that i ned a fresh start and there u go.. so i am gonna move and hopefully solve all 3 of those problems, the most stressfull one is my debt. i owe 8k on my visa ewwww. also i am trying to help my sister pay off her tuition fees also so shes counting on me. Speaking of which, do you have any good hookups to help me find a job? i would LOVE to be a bartender or somehting like that where I can make tips. I think i have a good look for it plus I am SUPER friendly. so here is some random stuff about me. i love star gazing, the outdoors, porn, foreplay, massages, the internet, shopping, doing my nails, sex, cooking, and watching movies. when it comes ot guys i just want someone who treats me the way i deserve to be treated. i can be such a good girlfriend and a total freak in bed. i am up for just about ANYTHING sexually.. serioulsy As for my current job doesnt pay that well but coming from where I lived it was my only real option. I am sure I told u about it but if i didnt i really hope u dont look down on me for it and can accept me for who i am. See I do this webcam thing where I basicly get paid to chat to people on cam and tease around a bit. I know its not the most MORAL job out there but i am desperate for money and its pretty easy money. i wanna get a real job though and thats another reason why i am moving. The job suits me cause i like tlaking to people and i am quite dirty minded so its the best of both worlds and i get paid for it hehe.. Anyways here is what i was thinking.. since my computer SUCKS and its hard for me to chat by email or instant messenger.. why dont u come chat me at my work site? i can totally get u in for free.. i have 2 free passes a month to share with whoever i like.. i havent ever given any out but i dont mind giving u one as we totally need to chat before i move. see you can login as a customer but ill give u a special link where u dont pay or get billed anything. its a special vip backdooor link... this woudl be the best palce for us to chat cause i am online all the time now trying to save as much money as possible for the move..also i will kick any other chatters out when i see u sign in. does this work for u? i understand if ur not cool with it.. i kno theres a lot of scammers out there so if u dont wanna chat there then i guess ill email u in a few weeks when i get my internet all set up in the new place. although i woudl really feel more comfortable chating wiht u before i move.if u do decide to come chat me online then u have to PROMISE me that u will not share the vip link with anyone.. for any reason.. its for YOU only baby i am trusting u.. once u sign in we can chat and u can see me on webcam also if u have one u can go on too.. oh la la hot.. and of ocurse u wudnt pay me for it ur my friend DUH! I am trusting u not to abuse it though cause once u sign in u can watch ohter girls naked for free too and i wudnnt want that.. YOUR EyeS BETTER ONLY BE ON ME hahahahha!! unless of course we watch them together So i am trusting u.. so u can trust me.. the link is at the bottom of the email. remember not to give it to anyone under any circumstances! i am online right now if u wanna come chat now.. its dead in here.. please come also.. u obvioulsy need a cc to sign into the site but thats just to prove u are not a minor...it says right on the vip link that its free since u are vip and u wont get billed anything.. ok im getting off here now.. im waiting for u baby. cant wait to see u and meet u and hug u and kiss u.. ciao for now.. xoxox ----> localxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. com/free (take out the spaces obvioulsy heheh)

Sorry for the length, but I'm having an interesting week. I got the first email a few days ago and then you can see my response. I made a new personal e-mail just for this. I'm going to continue on with this for a while......

PS. I'm back in the US for a few weeks. Feels pretty good.




Hi,

I am sending you this message with honest and have faith that you will not dissapoint me, I am Mrs. Dorothy Edwards from Republic of Syria. I am married to late Mr. Thomas Edwards, who is an oil contractor in Republic of Syria for Twenty years before he died resent political crises in the country.

We were married for Eighteen years. Before the untimely death of my husband, When my late husband was alive he kept the sum of (US$6,000,000 M)(Six Million Dollar) in a diplomatic delivering and security vault,in a consignment he deposited as family valuables and the vault company does not know the content of the consignment to be money as it was declear and deposited as family valuables.

Recently,Following my ill health, Doctors have told me of my detoriating ill health due to my cancer problem.Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to a Christain organization (Church, Lessprivilages home) or a believer in Christ who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein,according to the desire of my late husband before his death and also for you to use part of it to take care of my only lovely son.I will give you all the instruction and proceedures as soon as you respond to this message.

I want this fund to be used in activities like, Orphanages, schools,and Churches/mosque for propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth.Please always be prayerful all through your life.

I stated herein and also contact me through my private email for confidential: ( d-eliz@live.com )
Remain blessed in the Lord.

Yours in Christ
Mrs Dorothy Edwards

Dorothy,

I read with great interest your letter to me and the great tragedies that have affected your family. I will be terribly interested in helping you do something good with that money. What do I need to do? I have no money so this will help me a lot.

Your love,

Michael

Dear Michael,

Thanks for your wonderful response to my letter to you, I am glad you responded to my letter after reading it, I and my Child also want to thank you for accepting to help us out, from the way you sounded I can see you are a nice man with good heart and I have this feelings that you are truly willing to help us with all your heart,

like I said the most important reason why I contacted you for this service is about my Child future which is the very much important for me, as you already know I have only but few months to live and to me for now money means nothing to me,

I really want you to help me secure the future of my child with this funds that I inherited from my husband which is inside a trunk box and was deposited with a security company here in Europe, actually we are from Syria and as you may have heard, my country has suffered a lots of political crisis that recently resulted to a war, even though the situation has calmed down a little bit at the moment, I still want my daughter to relocate because if I die, no one else will take care of her as she is young and still need a parental care to be able to accomplish her education and become someone in life, please help us with all your heart, it is not a difficult thing to do for someone, even though we hardly know but I believed that one got to know each other just a day, I have think twice about this decision and I think is the best for my child because here in Syria the political crisis has dominated all over the countries I fancy the way life is in United State and I think it is the best place for my daughter to live and continue her studies, please help me realize this dream , it means a lot to us, you can imagine a cancer dying mother planning a better future for her child what it means to her and her only child, please I beg you once more to assist us with all your heart, whatever expenses you make to ensure that my child future is well secured in your country, I promise that you have take it back in double fold as soon as you receive our inheritance funds in question.

What will be required of you to help us realize this dream is as follows:

Yours full name and address,

Telephone and fax

Age and occupation and a copy of your ID card which I will submit to the security company to enable them approve the release of the box and deliver it to your address , while I send you the key code of the box to enable you open it and send us some amount here which my child will use to come over and I will keep some for my up keep this the last day of my life comes, then when my child finally joins you, you open an account for her in a bank and lodge the money inside and adopt her as yours to help direct and guide her until she is old enough to take care of herself.


This is all for now, you have heard all our tragic stories, I will be waiting to hear from you, please if there’s any little help you feel you can render to us for the moment until we finally make this happen, please do not hesitates to let us know,

We do love and care for you!

God bless you

Mrs. Dorothy
