Free Email Services – they can be useful!

Sooooo I went to the website, a free email service provider – it’s been around for years and does not seem to be going anywhere soon – and created a SCAMDEX.ZZN.COM email service – so you can go there and get a email address to use and abuse as you wish.

Great if you want to contact someone but don’t want the relationship to continue…. not sure if you’re being scammed? create a new email address, give that out and if it all turns cruddy, just walk away. The accounts are removed after 30 days of no-use so you can forget all about it.

Beloved of scammers the world over (and especially popular in some of the more western partsof the African subcontinent), the free email address allows the freedom to communicate with no strings attached. it’s nice to be able to put it to a new use. (kind of like a disposable razor).

Anywa, go ahead, get a new email address – don’t go sending any 5 megapixel photos there though, it’s only got 3MB quota!

One word of warning – ZZN are quite happy to pass on details to law enforcement officials so no scamming please!

Wall Street Bail-out Scam Email Joke

As reported in the Washington Post’s “The Trail‘ section, here’s an email that’s making the rounds in Washington, and now, the rest of the world. No one is claiming authorship, but the ‘trail’ seems to start at the SEC. Enjoy!

Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transactin is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully Minister of Treasury Paulson
