Re : MySpace Winner

Hey Anonymous, My Dear Friend

Preciously, I've received such same mail from MySpace inbox too. It was before Valentine's Day, that I received that scam mail informing me of such a winning.

Thou, I never take that seriously, but still I did what my instinct tell me to do. Before responding to them, I tried on a few occasions to look for any detail/biodata of that particular person in MySpace Official website. But to my surprise, I've found out that there's so many profile bearing with the same name of Tom Anderson.

I did agreed with ya, the mail, itself, sounded very professional. But stil it's too cool to be true, rite. Especiallly, when the mail in my MySpace inbox was automatically deleted. My main suspect it was the game of hackers/malware. So my dear friend, please take note...

But as to confirm my suspicion, I responded to what they instructed me to do. By giving details and corresponding to them. They even instructed me to pay for the postage which I totally ignored. The game was up, when I email back to them informing of the scam they're plotting. Since then, I've never received any email from them.

I hope that it wasn't late enough for me to warn anyone about this bullshit scam online. As I was damn late to send that scam mail to report to MySpace report abuse section, as the mail was already being deleted.

That the reason why I've send my post here. To inform everyone whom may concerns, to be extreme careful when receiving such mails from MySpace inbox.

I seriously believe that was the best entertainment site & they had no link with this scam at all.

I know it maybe annoying at first but stil we're not the loser. Coz we don't lose our money, to their benefits. So thumb up to ya, for sharing your experience here. Best wishes from me, my dear friend...

Another stupid scammer trying to spread his scam ...

Peter Congdon
First time I came across some people testifying of a voodoo spell caster who is capable of giving lucky numbers to win lottery, I was not interested in it because I thought it was not relevant. I have come across many testimonies on the internet testifying of Dr. Zeus, a voodoo spell caster who help people to win LOTTERY by giving them the rightful numbers to win the lottery. I didn't believe it at first but as life got worst, I decided to take a try. Now my try has made me a millionaire!! I have been playing all types of lottery for 7 years now but I have not win up to $1000. But after contacting Dr. Zeus, he cast the spell and give me the right and winning figures and behold I won the lottery of £13.5million Pounds. Now I am a living testimony of the good works of Dr Dr. Zeus, a gifted man with great powers. It is my secret but I decided to make the world know because many people might be wanting this kind of help.

Contact him via his E-mail, [removed] Check my profile here just in case of doubt. Despite the money, I choose to stay in my council house. [removed]
