Anyone who uses the internet and has a mail account experiences spam. It is one of those irritants that we all learn to ignore, up to a point. My Spamware gets rid of most of it by putting it into a folder. Every day I used to add 3-4 more spam to the pile.

In the last month or so I have noticed that there are a lot more spam being diverted into the spam folder and I am having to add a lot more myself. I reckon that I am getting about 3 times more spam than usual.

I have also noticed that my internet has sloooowed.

My theory is that there has been a general increase in Spam and that this is affecting download speeds generally.

Otherwise.............

They're out to get me!

I'm not par-a-n-o-i-d...

Arghh..........................

Dearest One,
I am pleased to contact you with this nominated time after much thinking towards this transaction. Looking straight to the point, I am a 19 years undergraduate, the child of late Mr & Mrs. David Wood, President of Café-Cacao & Agro-Alimentaire industrie Plc. (SCAFECAO) San-Pedro. My father was a wealthy cocoa-coffee and oil merchant based in San-Pedro one of the economic cities in the western part of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associate in a dinner party organized on his name to honour his company.
When my mother died on the 21st of October 2001, father took me so special because I am motherless. Before he gave up the ghost on the 29th of March 2008 by 10.00am in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me and informed me that he has a sum of US$ 4.5 million Dollars left in a Local Bank here in Abidjan, Coted'ivoire.
Before he finally gave up, he admitted that he used my name as his son for the next of kin in the deposit of the fund. He explained to me that it was because of his political ambition to support the present Government that he was poisoned to death by people he called his friends, He Instructed me to seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this fund and use it for investment purpose, such as real estate properties.
Sir, I am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways:
1)TO PROVIDE A BANK ACCOUNT WHERE THIS MONEY WOULD BE TRANSFERRED TO.
2)TO SERVE AS OUR GUARDIAN OF THIS FUND SINCE I AM 19 YEARS.
3)TO MAKE ARRANGEMENT FOR US TO COME OVER TO YOUR COUNTRY AFTER THE MONEY HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED.
Moreover, sir I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after the successful transfer of this fund to your nominated account oversea. Furthermore, you can indicate your option towards assisting me as i believe that this transaction would be concluded within seven working days you signify your interest to assist me.
Anticipating hearing from you soon.
Thanks.
Yours Sincerely,
Michael.

I don’t know you in person or met with you before, but I am of the believe that you would be obliged to come to my assistance after hearing about my situation. I have been facing the harsh realities of life since after the death of my both parent. read my letter to you in the attachment
Pray for me and Remain blessed
Master Michael

I started this thread about three weeks ago and was mildly irritated. Now I'm red hot angry. I received 31 emails today 3 were legitimate , 28 were spam.

I really hate spammers.

Don't use eircom.net, it is spam central - I had to abandon my account with them. G-mail or hotmail are much better.
Gmail is by far the best, zero spam, but you don't even have to give up your eircom.net account.

Set up a new gmail acount, and share that email address ... um ... going forward. Go to the Settings area and under Accounts, you will find a section called Get mail from other accounts.

Input your old eircom email address and password and Gmail will pick up all the email from eircom, bin the spam and deliver the rest to your inbox. It is stunningly accurate.

**Make sure that you do not tick the box marked Leave a copy of the retrieved message on the server or you will quickly hit the quota limit set by eircom and lose email sent after that time.

You can also use the Gmail interface to send email from the eircom address, the setup is in the same section.

You can use the web interface (very advanced), or switch on IMAP use Thunderbird or Outlook to pick up the email, with the emails going to the old eircom address coming in via Gmail, and the spam being filtered at that point.

Thank you sir, very handy advice. I abandoned it two years ago but there is undoubtedly still the odd normal e-mail going there, so I will try that...

(Back 2 d serious stuff) aliceginger@mailingg.com

Dear Sir,

I saw your profile and I decided to send this message to you, how ever I will like you to read the entire message and then get back to me immediately ok.

I am Miss Alice ginger, from Republic of Cote D’ivoire. There is information I would like you to keep very confidential. There is this huge amount of money which my late father Hon. Mohammed Ginger, deposited in the bank in Abidjan Cote D’ivoire , for safe keeping before he died.
The money in question is 14.5, Million U.S.Dollars.

The reason why I contact you for this transaction is that I can not make the withdrawal of the fund, because my late father is the beneficiary of the fund and I am the next of kin, but according to the bank, they said that i can only have access to the fund if been tranfered overseas as my late father made it to be. I have gone to the bank and they have agreed to transfer this fund to any account of my choice for my life investment.

What I would want you to do is to assist me and make sure that this fund is tranfered from the bank to your nominated account, I will give you 20% of the total fund for your assistance.

Why I will use the remaining balance of the money for an investment in your country for my future. If you are interested and can maintain the very confidential of this transaction, then you e-mail me immediately for more clarification.

Thanks,

Yours Sincerely,
Miss Alice ginger.

We've hit the motherlode baby!!!!!

Exclusively To You,

I am Mrs. Suha Tawil Arafat, the wife of Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian leader who died in Paris.
Since the death of my husband I have been humiliated by the present leadership of the Palestinian
Liberation Organization. I have been subjected to physical torture.

As a window it was so painful, I have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.
I think you must have heard over the media reports on the discovery of some fund in my husband secret
bank account and the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my late husband in my name
of which I have refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine (P.L.O).

And they are not relenting on their effort to make me and my only Daughter poor. Hence my desire for
a foreign assistance for the future of my only Daughter .You can visit the BBC news broadcast below
for your understanding of what I am talking about;

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Mrs Arafat's bank accounts probed

Please I need your assistant over deposited fund amount $10,000,000,00.(Ten Million Dollars) with a
Financial institution in abroad, So that I will permit the Financial Institution to transfer the fund
to your country for safe keeping and for lucrative business in your country in the name of my Daughter
Zahwa.

Please let this arrangement be known to you and I alone and l want all our correspondence should be
strictly on email alone because my telephone number has been tapped and all my lines are monitoring
in my country.lf you are willing to assist for our mutual benefits,

We have to negotiate on your Percentage of the $10,000,000.00 As I am ready to offer you 30% for you to
assist me to buy a house and setup a business in the name of my (Daughter Zahwa) in your country and she
will come and meet with you, Please do not betray me as you can preview this report which took place in

August 2007: Khalid Amayreh: How did Suha Arafat amass all these millions?

This is how l was betrayed by some one l transferred my $11.5 Million Dollars to his Account and he size all
the money and review my secret to his friend in Tunis, that is how l lost all the money, Please if you will be
honest to me I will entrust more funds into your care and you will be having 30% percent on any of my money
you receive, As this is one of the legacy that we will keep for our children.

But In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and international media as I am giving
you this information in total confidence. Though we really do not know each other before, but I will greatly
appreciate if you render me these assistants in good faith please expedite urgency.


Yours sincerely,
Mrs. Suha Tawil Arafat.
