I realize that most hubbers are savvy to such mailings, but I thought I'd let people know that the hubber 'hartgreen' contacted me regarding plane crashes and millions to be made. You know, the same old same old.
Just letting you know.
You mean this ISN'T legit
Damn - and I just bought a bridge yesterday
I used to live in London SW 8. We never trusted people who lived in SW 14.
this is the big hint to spot scam, if it was Zimbabwe dollars then you could have replied to that person,right ? LOL.
I got one too, but from someone else, about a crash in 1998. said she was a widow, did research, and the guys wife died in the crash too. I sent her a letter, and it was returned by postmaster, but there were 2 attachments added that I didn't send? don't know what all that's about.
Your scammer is known, Lorlie:
I suddenly remembered my former accountant lived in SW 14. I was checking to see he hadn't gone to the bad.
ONLY US $12,500,000? I often get ones for US $25,000,000! You should hold out for a better offer.
and here is another coincidence....he has family in africa and the very same thing happened to them the only difference is that the lone survivor is living in a refugee camp. I think it is his distant cousin.
Hahaha it seems they have a big family - I just wrote a hub about one of their "cousin" :-)
I aint getting on no B52 in the near future now LMAO.
Good morning Lorlie
Yet another variant on the Nigerian Fax Scams of 20 odd years back. Surprising how many of the older generation are hit with this scam in Australia, it got so bad at one stage one of our Current Events TV programs did a story on it a couple of months back.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is, and avoid it like the plague.
It is really tragic for many older folks who fall for this stuff, Kangaroo_Jase. I know we made light of it, but some have indeed lost thousands-not to mention their trust in their fellows-to these jerks.
Thanks for the heads up Kangaroo and lorlie. I'm new at these forum things of I'm glad I came across this warning cause I tend to trust things on Hubpages as everyone seems so legit. Of course, most hubbers are but it pays to be cautious.
There's a TV show in the UK called "WatchDog", run by the BBC. It may end up being featured on it, as they received complaints similar to this. Its one of my favorite shows, and every week you get a complete education on the massive scams that are being put on innocent unsuspecting folks. I am all for "Awareness" and being made aware of such stupid and desperate criminal acts. Well done for highlighting this and for not being taken in by it.
Theres a <expletive> load of info on the net about this, just simply search for Nigerian Scam in your fav search engine.

Have you received any love letter from other Hubber or your reader on Hubpages? Today I received one from a woman Hubber who is very active on Hubapages. I do not understand how to deal with it, as I hate love letters. Please share your experience and guide me.

I recieved an email from a hubber who said she was 13 years old. It wasn't asking for help or anything...it was trying to make friends. I forwarded it to the Hub Team because I don't think 13-year-old girls should be writing to adults on the internet.has anyone else gotten anything like this and if...

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 to be taken as far as "this hubber" did. Yes, I reported it to...
