I got an e-mail this morning through HubPages email, about someone who has a whole bunch of money and is dying. She wants me to administer her late husband's fortune.
Now I have seen these before-- and know enough to not reply. I'm sure you know too, but thought I'd mention it here. I forwarded it to team HubPages.
The interesting thing about it is that, though written under a fictitious name-- the HP screen name also appears in the header. This 'hubber' apparently signed up about 5 hours ago to target hub-writers.
I'll bet I'm not the only lucky one. Did you get this splendid offer?
The email, which comes via the HubPages system, has a couple of links down the bottom "spam" and "abuse". Just click on "spam" and it will open a page at HubPages and automagically flag the offender.
I've had two or three of this type of email in the past week. I just flagged them, but I hope everyone here is sensible enough not to fall for them.
I haven't received anything so far...hmm... feeling a bit slighted now...
No I haven't received this one, but I get several a day like it anyway in my work email account, as the email address is displayed on my hypnotherapy website.
I am always, of course, flattered to be the only one chosen out of millions of possible recipients to be given the chance to launder these mythical millions for them!
I used to participate in e-lottery MLM. I quit after a year,but... I get almost every day all kinds of nu-u-u-merous emails about winning 1 mil, 2 mil, 10 mil. Depends on authors's fantasy. I think from all over the world. If it were true, just a part of it! All I need just a lousy half-a-million, to be quite comfortable in life. I have very modest habits. I don't even drink coffee!!! Speaking seriously - I damped one of my email boxes. But it's useless, I still get those.
JUST DO NOT READ THIS STUFF! DELETE! You can catch a virus just by opening your email.

Has anyone received hateful or derogatory email from another hubber? What did you do? I woke up with one this morning, while it is perfectly just to disagree with one's view on a subject, I don't believe it needed...
