My favorite part "Do not forget to include your web page in your replying back for confirming i contact the right store."

English translation "I am literally trying to scam thousands...maybe even millions of people through email, so if you could be so kind as to give me your website address it would help me tremendously in filtering through my list and only keeping the suckers on it" LMAO

Good Day,

1. Do you allow Email Order

2. Accept Credit Card (Visa, Master, Amex or Discover) as the Means of Payment.

3. Do you ship to Australia or Can I arrange the pick up with my shipping company after the payment is been confirmed

4. Do you have a Website that tells little about your company and your Products.

Kindly get back to me immediately, so I can email you with the exact items needed with the Quantities.

Hope to read from you now.

Needless to say, I have not responded to them! I just wanted you all to be aware of the various ones I've received. :mad: BTW, how many of you sign your business e-mails with Love? LOL

Its fairly easy to spot bogus scammers and spammers these days and to let your email program identify them as spammers and trash them.

Anyone who gives generic info like I want to buy your products, or- do you take credit cards? or- do you sell overseas? is a scammer. You know that when this info is readily available on your website.

But please learn to identify these scumbags before you even open up that email. Many of them give themselves away in the title so you don't even have to open it up and can send it to your spam file.

Another one..and I don't mean to hijack this one..

But I think it is worth mentioning..

My brother got this one..just this week...

A letter telling, he had won 1.5 million..

all he had to do is call the number, to conferm..

he did..and they said yes that he had won..

but he needed to pay the taxes on the winnings..

before they would deposit it in his bank..

of course my brother knew it was a scam..

but just think of the older people that they are maybe

tricking..

My brother told them that they were the scum of the earth..to

do things like this..

I have received that Australia email several times too. It is best not to reply at all - like someone said --- delete. They are creeps that is for sure. I don't know all of the ins and outs of the scammers or how they actually get someone to give them money, but it must work in some cases or they would quit. They deserve a swift kick in the you know where! :mad: Especially in these tough times when so people are grasping at straws just to stay in business. :(:mad:
