    SCAM ALERT

    There are a lot of different versions of that going around and if it is the first that you have seen, it probably will not be the last. It began out of Nigeria and has spread to many other places and different approaches. Recently there have been two that are quite new. One is to notify you that you have won some big lottery, usually an overseas one and of course, you didn't even enter it! The other, and the one I find most offensive, is a claim to have a large amount of funds in some forign country that they want your help to transfer into the USA for the purpose of doing charitable work or church missions or something of that type.

    There are many variations of this SCAM but the key is that they all want you to reply by email and of course that is followed by asking for you personal information. I am amazed that they still seem to work since they have been around in some form now for about three or four years. But there are still reports of people being sucked in so be aware of them. And never reply to one if you did not initiate it.

    To all concerned, I recently recieved an e-mail from a "daillo 11". This letter was pretty much the same, 'deposit a large amount of money for me as my father just died'. I was made to understand they got my name thru RVUSA forum. Does anyone have any information on this scam?

    I have recieved similar mail many times over the last few years, but none of them said it was through this forum. I guess they use any source for their accumulation of names. I have heard of this for a long times and ignore it always.
