Not just fight spams... but also FIGHT SCAMS... there've been a lot of

emails directed to SPAM folder which say "Not Spam" but were in fact

"SCAMS". Some of the scams are:

1) Emails saying "you won the electronic draw of such and such... and

are entitled for "this very large amount of money" ... but then will

require your personal details.
2) Another scams are job offers that you didn't apply for.
3) Emails saying.... "the Government of Nigeria apologizes for the

scams that you have been a victim of. The scammers have been

apprehended and now, therefore, return "the sum of

150,000USD...such and such...
THERE ARE A LOT MORE!!!
Scammers have managed to copy even YAHOO website and send emails

that say you won this amount of money. Please send us your passport

copy, id copy etc. Please BEWARE! Scammers also copy BANKS,

FREIGHTS websites and logos so we should know how to fight these

SCAMS.
DO NOT REPLY TO THESE EMAILS. DELETE THEM IMMEDIATELY.

BE CAREFUL IN FORWARDING MESSAGES TO YOUR FRIENDS.

MOST OF THE FORWARDED MESSAGES ARE USED BY SCAMMERS

IN COLLECTING EMAIL ADDRESSES SO THAT THEY CAN SEND

SCAM EMAILS.
I do hope that somehow this warning will make us aware of these scams

and be more cautious.
Thank you.
