I haven't changed a single iota. And there's no way I could make the stuff up. So who's Miss Mobioh, of the Japan email address sending me this scam from wherever "ymail.com" is located?

I just changed the @ in her email address it was a live link. Don't click on it

@Izzie,
I know it's a scam and spam. I put that in the title and on the forum topic line. The links are disabled: I replaced @ with at but otherwise the text is exactly as I got it. I just want to know why I'm on the mailing list of that scammer.

@electronicmail,
I get spam everyday from people who have hacked other peoples email addresses and my name is on their list of friends. Drives me nuts but it goes straight into my junk file and unopended, even tho their names on it as being contacts of mine - and it's then deleted!

That's what the spamming companies do - they get hold of an address book... and wham... spam spam spam

just don't open it, delete immediately.

Enusre you have anti virus softward on your computer and don't open anything you don't recognise. They will have got your email from any number of places... each time you sign up to something your email goes out there... and folks are clever and spam it out.

Pain in the bahookie.

Hopefully, a techie like Robert, Nick or DrewDad who are hot on these things will come along and give you a better or more understandable explaination of what to do about it.

Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging spam, Internet forum spam, junk fax transmissions, social networking spam, television advertising and file sharing network spam.

Spamming remains economically viable because advertisers have no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists, and it is difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings. Because the barrier to entry is so low, spammers are numerous, and the volume of unsolicited mail has become very high. The costs, such as lost productivity and fraud, are borne by the public and by Internet service providers, which have been forced to add extra capacity to cope with the deluge. Spamming is universally reviled, and has been the subject of legislation in many jurisdictions.[1]



edit: there are many threads about these scams... have a look around the board...

I never got one of those before. I mean I get plenty of spam but not the total scam kind this is. Is there any way to trace it? There's one Japanese e-mail address. One that looks US-based. Then there's the Russian letters. And the numbers are lifted from some European document that originally said 6,500.- except they write it 6.500,00 in Europe. You can see where they added the zeroes. I don't know how they write out these numbers in Japan or Africa, does anybody know?

@HexHammer,
That's not the question here. Everybody knows it's spam and a scam. The guys who say it's a good deal go for it are just joking. I just want to know where it came from and how I got on the spammer's mailing list.

Do you email any friends reletives or businesses? Its possible one of those have been compromised. Their address book with your contact details are then out on the web.
Even if the friend/reletive was quick to realise and deleted the compramising software your adress is still out there.

@roger,
Care to tell the rest of us what it was in that post that seemed wrong to you? I appreciated Izzie's info and I read both links in that post. Thanks to everyone else who replied to say I'm not alone in receiving these scam offers. A good day to all.
