    WARNING FOLKS.

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 22 Oct 2017, 12:37 pm

    BEWARE MAIL CON.

    Be on your guard if you receive a letter claiming you have won 915,810.

    The mailing, headed Sweepstake Loteria International, asks for five percent of the windfall up front in order to claim.

    But, part with that money and that's the last you will hear from the firm based In Lisbon.

    You have been warned ! Mad Suspect

    Thanks for that Paps.

    I had already seen the warning about that elsewhere, but it is still good to get it here also.

    They make these cons so easy to get entangled with that we have to keep on our toes to avoid them.

    As I have often said before: "To be forewarned is to be forearmed".

    These threats appear and disappear regularly and as long as we do not get too complacent we should be alright.

    Easy to avoid. If you haven't entered you haven't won.

    Unfortunately, too many folks are greedy for the 'easy buck'.

    The trouble is that these traps are designed to catch the unwary, especially if there is a payoff promised.

    The joys of being a suspicious and cynical old bat keeps me out of trouble, mostly!

    Cynicism is probably the best quality to have when surfing the Net.

    From one cynic to at least two others, it certainly pays to be a cynic these days.
