An unsympathetic person might look at that email and say that anyone who would fall for this deserves to lose their money, but no one deserves to be conned. The email does bring up the message, however, that we should all be careful not to be blinded by our own greed. Greed and a desire for easy money are two very common traits that enable scams to be successful. Although it should be obvious, you should ask yourself whenever you get an email that promises money for nothing (not to mention, chicks for free) why are you so lucky? What is it about you that resulted in your being singled out to be eligible for this great investment opportunity, lottery or other windfall. The answer is nothing and that is what you will end up with if you respond in any manner to the senders of emails such as this.
The old adage is still true. A fool and his money are soon parted. However, it is also true that many smart people are also scammed so it takes a great deal of vigilance to protect oneself from being scammed and that is the reason for Scamicide and the books that I write. I urge you to consider buying “50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age” and “The Truth About Avoiding Scams” to help inform yourself of the dangers out there. And make sure to read http://www.scamicide.com each day to keep up with the latest scams and identity theft schemes.
