E-Mail Scams and Jokes
Thousands of people are dooped and fooled on a daily basis through E-Mail. Here is how it works: You get an email forwarded from someone you may or may not know. The email may be a sad story about a little girl who has cancer. The email states that for everyone you forward this email to, the little girl will receive a donation of 3 cents to help her get healed or to get her something that she wishes for before she dies. A real tear jerker! Unfortunately, ALL these types of emails are fake! They are designed as a sick joke to make people clutter up mail servers just for the fun of it.
If you receive emails like this, simply delete them!!! Do not respond even if it’s to tell them that it’s fake. I did that and felt like a fool afterward knowing that I just cluttered someone’s email system to give a warning to others! My intentions were good, but I was dooped just like everyone else! It’s like a cancer that just keeps growing. To stop the cancer, simply hit the delete button and forget all about it.
