Beware of this “Goodnews” Email Scam!

Myself By T.V. Antony Raj


A week ago I received the following email which obviously is a scam.

The “to:” field is empty.

Does this statement: “Your Email ID makes you Lucky of sum pay out of 2,500,000.00 in NOKIA UK”, make any sense? The pay out is a mere 2,500,000.00 and in what currency?

This is the prelude message sent by a confidence trickster that asks for Personally identifiable information, similar to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation scam.

If you receive any similar letter I recommend you to ignore it and desist from replying, however tempting the “pay out” amount might be.

    1. Hello Ashraful,

      Did you work hard or shed perspiration to earn even one dollar out of $800,000 mentioned by the scammer in the email you received?

      Don’t you see there is no something for nothing in this world?

      Wake up man. Don’t dream of free wealth coming to you from some unknown rogue.

      If you earn with the sweat of your brows, then that is real money.
