How To Evade possible e-mail Scams

If you have ever watched any spy movie or military documentaries for that matter, you should know that the successfulness of any mission highly depends on the amount of intelligence gathered before laying the ambush. Tearing through an enemies’ territory without even the slightest knowledge of how they look like or even what color of shoes they wear may end up in devastation. Probably laying the element of surprise on you!

So much like in real life, the internet works on exactly the same principle. The less knowledge someone has about you, the less you have to worry about in terms of scams or having your identity stolen. Thorough knowledge of possible victims are what internet scammers bank on in-order to achieve success and it is upto to you to deny them.

They will cook up ridiculous stories that will ensure they obtain your personal information eventually. So for examples, i will dig deep into my own email account spam folder and show you the emails i personally receive on a daily basis.

IMF SCAM

WORLD BANK SCAM

MICROSOFT LOTTERY SCAM

ATM CARD SCAM

AFRO-EURO INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY

PEPSI COLA AWARD SCAM

MICROSOFT GRAND PRIZE SCAM

NIGERIAN SCAM

The above scams all have one thing in common, they all need your personal information as i have indicated in each one of them with a yellow highlight.

So now you know, gullibility or ignorance are NOT options!! Knowledge is Power!
