Junk mail!

 
I get lot of hilarious stuff in my mails.....I sometimes think am I an idiot to get these kind of mails...All JUNK!!
now most of the names are one of its kinds..like Wicton xempe (the mail says)
mam,
I have huge deposits in my bank,I was wondering what should I do?(this was an e-mail)
(I wanted to say"throw it in the trash Can,best place)
another one,
I am very poor ,on streets... totally bankrupt ..please help me with just $20 hope its not big amount as all of my past friends are helping me ,it will solve my purpose....and then sad story sob sob sob!!!
another one..
Hey you won a million dollar,now let us know how you want your payments to be made(I was okay but I never had a lotto ticket)...we generally pay in easy payments of $50000 each ,if its good for you(lol)now can we get your bank information and all fine details ...(sure,so it will be in a reverse manner,my bank will be empty in seconds)

Hey do you want to be a millionaire with just fifty bucks ,invest now ,best opportunity...fill these forms join us...I went to link ....it was all fine details..including SSN and bank information...
Trust me all these e-mails look real..with name of companies and telephone numbers ,even people are there to answer your calls..
I tried calling one number,,,they said"you are the lucky winner ...A grand prize of 1 million dollar,my hubby sitting next to me ..smiling ...I said"so when should I come to collect my money??"they said..NO,not personally ..we transfer in your checkin a/c ..or savings ..so we need your routing and bank a/c number..plus their is  a seminar at 6:30 am on Sunday with breakfast,we will publicly announce the winner ....I said "ok(thinking at back of my mind publicly announcing biggest fool of the year)....But I don't have any bank a/c "..then you cannot get money...you have lost it!
Few days back I got a letter from a Car dealership with a car key..."it was Porsche "it said "you have WON this"!!the letter had a beautiful picture..I imagined myself driving  a hatchback ...smiling at my stars..I said"GOD TUSHI GREAT HO" (god you are great)everybody  looking at me so happy with the letter and key....BUT I when I read the whole letter it said "offer expires"***...it was past the due date..and now you can get a brand new Porsche if you sell your existing car......another Fake one!!

these are all fake mails which appear to be very genuine! they just try to squeeze money "... in this trap my cousin lost$300 which was withdrawn every month for no reason when we called the number it didn't exist ..this  existed few months back ,one thousand dollar was withdrawn by the time we put a stop payment with the bank..it was so fast.... we thought it was for  auto insurance....but came to know when auto insurance which was real ..was charging separately!!
A thumb rule...never never give your bank information to anyone unless you are sure...these are all fraudulent transactions appeared to be genuine!!

New methods of marketing and FRAUD.

Great job in adding humor.:))

Despite grumpy start of the day, I smiled....

Sometimes it is a real pain.
I just blindly delete most of them.
I just fail to understand how people fall for the trap when it comes to money.
