Money from strangers

Oy.   As much media coverage as these inheritance scams get, they still live, breathe, and multiply. The idea of free money from a generous stranger is appealing and designed to prove that there are good people out there.  The complete strangers who do things like this are not random people sending emails from across the world.

I have six benefactors waiting for my response now.  I figured I’d condense the messages into one post since the short messages are about the same.

And these are the short ones.  All of the messages are lies.  There are or funds, inheritances from secret and previously unknown relatives, and no military officers looking to smuggle funds from Afghanistan.  These people are scum.

Be smart and safe.  If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Especially if the message lands in your spam folder.
