I was checking my emails the other when I noticed that my Spam Emails Folder is screaming because its already full. I then clicked and checked if there are emails that's supposed to be not a spam but was routed to that folder. I also noticed that most of the are really Spam. Lol!
The only thing that catches my attention are these emails from someone in Burkina Paso. Funny thing is, I dont know someone from that place. However when I open the email, it says: Dear Lucky Winner! Congratulations!!!
I know this is a spam email and a scam. Where in they will tell you that you won in a lottery and all you need to do is to send your Full Name, Address, Telephone Number or even your bank account so they can deposit the amount you've won. Funny!
As I continue checking my emails, I found another one is which more of like a personal email from Western Union
And another one from Mr. Ming Yang
And another one from Karen Polak and Co. said that I am the beneficiary/next of kin to their client as Ibear the same name identity. Weird!!!
This post is really not to tell everyone to believe in this type of emails but to let people you guys know that we need to be careful in giving out information specially our personal information. They might use it for something else. Scary!
However, at the back of my mind; what if I will try. There is nothing to lose anyways, I suppose!
What if its true? What if I really deserve that amount and behind this emails are really people who cared so much in giving out there riches. What if?
Honestly, I tried it once... A long time ago when this type of emails started to circulate the world wide web. But after I sent an email giving out my information.. NOTHING HAPPENED!!!
Its a scam!!!
BUT What IF?
If I am going to sum it up:
- $5000 - Western Union Compensation
- Estate from Am Schanzengraben 25, Zurich 8047, Switzerland
- $24,500,000 - Profitable Business Proposal from Ming Yang
Reall is a huge amount. Wish its true...
Maybe I'll just keep on dreaming.
However nothing is more fulfilling from getting your riches out of hardwork. Maybe some people are lucky enough to get their millions in a blink of an eye, but its also easier for them to spend it in a snap
