    It has been a long time since I showed up here but I wanted to alert everyone of someone trying to pull the classic Morocco scam using HubPages.  This is the start of the email I received.

    This characters needs to be hunted down and thrown out of here.

    It's actually known as the Nigerian Scam.

    Did you click on the link at the email that reports it as Spam or as Abuse?

    Have received similar emails many times over the last few years, just report it as spam or what other option you have... The sad thing is that people still fall for this scam after all of these years..

    I also have started recently getting emails about job offers that need me to complete lots of personal information in their application forms... The companies are all big respectable firms and the emails look "ok", but when you investigate it is related to some dodgy site in china or italy or elsewhere...

    Simple rule never give out information to anyone.... I even had a phone call from someone claiming to be from my bank, wanting me to confirm my personal details!!

    Give no one anything personal!!

    The recurring scam emails I'm getting on my work email these days are fake Paypal emails and fake UPS emails - the UPS ones are especially bad as the link is virus ridden, so not to be opened!!!!
