One Born Every Minute

I have three different e-mail accounts.  Lately all of them have been inundated with marvelous news about my free $50 gift certificates from Walmart, Walgreens, Southwest Airlines, Macy’s, Home Depot, Amazon, Microsoft, and various other well-known outfits.

They follow the security alerts that are addressed to “Valuable Customer” from banks such as Wells Fargo, Chase, TD, and Pay Pal.  Same thing but more urgent: my account/debit card has been blocked because of too many attempts to access my account.

Then there’s the miraculous fat-burning boner pill from Dr. Oz.

All I have to do is click on the link and, fill in my account information, and I’ll get my $50, my account will be unblocked, and I’ll lose weight and get laid at the same time.

I guess the Nigerian bankers and widows have a new gig.

Anyone who falls for this shit deserves to get ripped off.

2 barks and woofs on “One Born Every Minute

  1. I get one every once in a while in which I’m notified that my World of Warcraft account has been suspended, since I violated some Terms of Service. To clear up the problem, all I need to do is follow the link in the notification email and to submit my response (and I assume password). Since I’ve never played the game, I just tag ’em as spam, and move on.

  2. I never click on any liink with messages rom entities I don’t know. They will keep your information and bury you with more this kind of message.
