and since I have been recently seeking a flat mate, about 4 out of every 5 e-mails I get is a scam from the UK of all places with people wanting me to agree to being paid in advance and being overpaid and then returning a refund for the overpayment. I think I have been getting Nigeria scam e-mails for about the last 5 years.

Am I missing something here?
Some wise financial person please tell me what is down with these people.

hahaha ABORT! ABORT! ROFLZORZZ LAWL



. . . welcome to the wonderful world of e-scams.

Here's one of my favorite. "Full of Health? THEN DON'T CLICK!!" XD

Then there's the one's which cleverly use words in other real emails you have recieved and then there's ones with strange random words for the subject: "assemblage justify" or "available perpetual" . . sometimes they're really freaking funny.

And btw yes I have recieved a similar email like that about the banking 'mixup' from Nigeria - pretty sure many people recieve one like that at some point.

Re: Ok someone please advise me, it seems I am now quite rich

Oh starcat, those are the Nigerian bulk spam junk mails that have been going around for several years now.  I mean, you're not anybody unless you've gotten one!  big_smile  haha 

The rule of thumb that people could benefit from is:   If you don't know the person emailing you, and they don't know you - ESPECIALLY when the email is addressed to Dear Sir/Madam and all that - then delete it.  They have no business being in your inbox, and it's not valid.

I never take spams seriously, but I keep hearing about people who do, especially these Nigerian scam spams.  It's weird.  Just delete it I say.  Nobody's ever actually gotten any money from these Nigerian "ventures."   Eventually this scam will fade away...and a new one will emerge in its place.

This is probably the best FAQ on the subject.

Here's some fun scamming the scammer links...

http://www.haxial.com/fraud/mikeaba.html
This guy used the alias "James Tyberian Kirk" and was able to get the scammer on camera. (This is the one I had in mind when I started to respond LOL!)

http://www.scamorama.com/threebucks.html
This guy got 3 bucks from the scammer.

This one has lots of 419 fun and other fraud/scam related info:

That's given a really great idea. You could give YOURSELF emails with similar themes like the one above.
If you really wanted to win the lottery you would keep sending yourself emails saying that you have already won.
I think this would help in being alignment with what you're asking for.

Does anyone know how to tweak emails so they automatically send themselves at a particular time?

Re: Ok someone please advise me, it seems I am now quite rich

If you receive an email entitled
"Bedtimes" < SPAN style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold; FONT-SIZE: 18pt; COLOR: navy; FONT-FAMILY: Tahoma">



Delete it IMMEDIATELY. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty. It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on disks within 20 feet of your computer. It demagnetizes the stripes on ALL of your credit cards. It reprograms your ATM access code, screws up the tracking on your VCR, and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play. It will program your phone auto dial to call only 0898 numbers.This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank.

IT WILL CAUSE YOUR TOILET TO FLUSH WHILE YOU ARE SHOWERING.
It will drink ALL your beer.
FOR GOD'S SAKE, ARE YOU LISTENING? ?
It will leave dirty underwear on the coffee table when you are expecting company.
It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine. If the "Bedtimes" message opened in a Windows 95/98 environment, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bathtub. It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.
***
WARN AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN.
***
And if you don't send this to 5000 people in 20 seconds, you'll fart so hard that your right leg will spasm and shoot straight out in front of you, sending sparks that will ignite the person nearest you.
Send this warning to everyone!!!
THERE'S A LOT OF SADNESS IN THE WORLD!
Right now, as you read this, 17 Million people are having SEX!!!

And look at you - you're on the computer!!
