    Hello , I received what looks like a SPAM in my PM box , Thought would share to alert

    From Mrs Joyce Philip

    My name is Mrs Joyce Philip I was born in Kuwait. I am married to Mr. Joshua Philip who worked with Kuwait embassy in TOGO for nine years before he died in the year 2013 We were married for eleven years without a child When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $4 Million in a Bank here in TOGO And Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer and stroke).Presently this money is still in the Bank. Having known my condition I am in need of a Hearted Individual that i will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct he or her I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late husband to help the poor people, orphanages widows I took this decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this fund. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank in TOGO I will also issue you an authorisation letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. You can contact me with this Altternative Email j_philip(at)terra.com

    May GOD Bless you

    Don't you want 5 Mln USD?

    I mean Kuwait people are known to be generous to absolute strangers after losing a husband and then searching on the internet a russian military forum instead of asking family,friends, churches, some organisations or anything like that?

    Have some trust in people on the internet, they deserve trust.... Laughing

    Nice work RP... Smile

    If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is...

    BTW can I suggest you add the account name to the title of this thread...

    Something along the lines of "Attention Members Regarding Joyce111".

    The sad thing is that it only has to work once and they make a few thousand dollars in legal fees to get these millions of dollars to some sucker in the rest of the world and they will keep on doing it.

    REPOST from Rules thread:

    Werewolf wrote:Now i have the same spammer before that it was joyce111 now it is with the exact same message joyceme.


    banned  .  Its a money laundering  effort . I will talk to  Vladimir79 about looking into a IP  ban  but with my experience in IT Security, A  case would have to be filed to the cybercrime division of  host country.

    I will however make a report to stopspam.org with that email.

    I apologize  for the inconvenience to members.

    - RP

    Update: I will be needing the IP from Vladimir 79 so if you guys can mass pm him I would appreciate it.

    I have once received such a email. I was first happy because there was said i am the winner of a prize. But fastly i have the conclusion that is a scam cause nobody sent prizes via email. It was too unrealistic to be the thruth
