Re: Spam

Well then we are practically neighbors!!   For you folks in the East or perhaps on the other side of the pond...... I used to think nothing of driving down to Alturas on Friday after work to have a sip of Brandy with my Mom & Dad before bedtime.  Yeah I'd stay for most of the weekend, but it's only 307 miles (c, 600Km) to Mom's front porch.

It's a pretty drive over to McCloud from there but rough under a foot of snow!  Ricky, you dodged the Weed inferno in good shape I expect.

We West side Chordians are a wee bit apart it seems.

Thanks;

Re: Spam

Here's another idea.

From what I have read, each mod is limited to certain sections. So my question is; Does every mod have the ability to edit posts in every section? He/She could edit out most of the text and any links. Just leave a few words that mean nothing to anyone. Then when the mod responsible for that section logs on, they can delete it.

That's the reason you'll see a spammer banned, but the post still up. Mods can ban members regardless of which forum the offending post appears in, but we can only edit or delete posts in the forums for which we are responsible.

Re: Spam

Rickyjack..... another imaginary dill pickle for your amazing reporting this morning!  Looks like you were finishing up the reporting as I was getting on here, dressed in my Tutu to smack the Spam Trolls with my polo mallet (as Doug suggests I might).

Actually, I'm wearing an old Jagermeister T-shirt and sweat pants, drinking my coffee from my Martin mug and having a cigarette.  Seriously, there's a bit to banning, seeing which ones I can delete and which I have to leave for others (and report so they can pick them off), so it's nice when they're all reported before I get here.  Then, I actually get a few minutes to enjoy the site rather than spend all my time reporting AND banning.  smile  THANK YOU SIR!

Re: Spam

No spam this morning. Spammers must have off on Sunday. smile

I'm sure everyone gets it but I seem to receive more than my fair share of email spam from the Prince of Nigeria trying to give me millions of dollars. I get one every 3-4 days. Well, last night I decided to have a bit of fun with one of them. Below is the email I received and my response to it.

It has come to my attention that you have in your possession, 2 trunks that you are consigned to deliver to my home. I am writing to tell you that the trunks contain $20,000,000 (twenty million) U.S. dollars. As I am a very generous person by nature, I would like you to have these trunks. Please take the money and give it to the many people around the world who have so much less than I do. I trust that you will not keep it all for yourself but will do much to improve the lives of the many people in the world who live in poverty. Thank you in advance for the good work you are going to do. You will make many people very happy.

Re: Spam

I received a reply to the above post. It appears I ticked someone off.

Here is what I got:

Re: WE THE FBI HAVE A WARRANT TO ARREST YOU

Anti-Terrorist and Monetary Crimes Division
Fbi Headquarters In Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau Of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001 Website: www.fbi.gov


Attention, this is the final warning you are going to receive from me do you get me?

I hope youre understand how many times this message has been sent to you?.

We have warned you so many times and you have decided to ignore our e-mails or because you believe we have not been instructed to get you arrested, and today if you
fail to respond back to us with the payment then, we would first send a letter to the mayor of the city where you reside and direct them to close your bank account
until you have been jailed and all your properties will be confiscated by the fbi. We would also send a letter to the company/agency that you are working for so that
they could get you fired until we are through with our investigations because a suspect is not suppose to be working for the government or any private organization.

Your id which we have in our database been sent to all the crimes agencies in America for them to inset you in their website as an internet fraudsters and to warn
people from having any deals with you. This would have been solved all this while if you had gotten the certificate signed, endorsed and stamped as you where
instructed in the e-mail below.this is the federal bureau of investigation (fbi) am writing in response to the e-mail you sent to us and am using this medium to
inform you that there is no more time left to waste because you have been given from the 3rd of January. As stated earlier to have the document endorsed, signed and

stamped without failure and you must adhere to this directives to avoid you blaming yourself at last when we must have arrested and jailed you for life and all your
properties confiscated.

You failed to comply with our directives and that was the reason why we didn't hear from you on the 3rd as our director has already been notified about you get the
process completed yesterday and right now the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and it will be carried out in the next 48hours as strictly signed by the
fbi director. We have investigated and found out that you didn't have any idea when the fraudulent deal was committed with your information's/identity and right now if

you id is placed on our website as a wanted person, i believe you know that it will be a shame to you and your entire family because after then it will be announce in
all the local channels that you are wanted by the fbi. As a good Christian and a honest man, I decided to see how i could be of help to you because i would not be

happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties confiscated all because your information's was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions, i called the efcc

and they directed me to a private attorney who could help you get the process done and he stated that he will endorse, sign and stamp the document at the sum of $98.00

usd only and i believe this process is cheaper for you.

You need to do everything possible within today and tomorrow to get this process done because our director has called to inform me that the warrant of arrest has been
signed against you and once it has been approved, then the arrest will be carried out, and from our investigations we learnt that you were the person that forwarded
your identity to one impostor/fraudsters in Nigeria when he had a deal with you about the transfer of some illegal funds into your bank account which is valued at the
sum of $10.500,000.00 usd.

I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till 11/17/2014 so that you could get this process done because i learnt that you were sent several e-mail
without getting a response from you, please bear it in mind that this is the only way that i can be able to help you at this moment or you would have to face the law
and its consequences once it has befall on you. You would make the payment through Western Union money transfer with the below details.

NAME: Uzoukwu Okechukwu
ADDRESS: LAGOS NIGERIA
TEXT QUESTION:FOR
ANSWER: YOU
AMOUNT: $98
Senders name======

Send the payment details to me senders name and address,Ref# number, text question and answer used and the amount sent. Make sure that you didn't hesitate
making the payment down to the agency by today so that they could have the certificate endorsed, signed and stamped immediately without any further delay. After all
this process has been carried out, then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your compensation funds which is valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00
usd which was suppose to have been transferred to you all this while.

Note/ all the crimes agencies have been contacted on this regards and we shall trace and arrest you if you disregard this instructions. You are given a grace today to
make the payment for the document after which your failure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for act of terrorism,
money laundering and drug trafficking charges, so be warned not to try any thing funny because you are been watched.


THANKS FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.



YOURS IN SERVICE,

NEW FBI DIRECTOR.SIR JAMES B.COMEY
NW WASHINGTON,D.C. 20535-0001

Fbi Headquarters In Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau Of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001 Website: www.fbi.gov


And my response:


OH NO. The fbi. Please no! *=)) rolling on the floor *=)) rolling on the floor *=)) rolling on the floor

Let me educate you, you stupid fool. Your understanding of the English language is pathetic and your understanding of the criminal justice system is just as bad.

First; fbi is always written as FBI. See how I wrote that? It's all capital letters. Also, The FBI does NOT send an email to a suspected criminal. They do a very quiet investigation and if there is criminal activities discovered, they obtain a warrant and go right to the house of the person. No warning is given via email. If you took the time to look, you would see that the FBI states this fact on their website. A person under investigation will NEVER receive an email from the FBI.

Second; the mayor of a town or city has no authority to close a bank account or to have someone jailed. A warrant needs to be draw up and signed by a judge. After that has been done, a sheriff/constable will execute that warrant. A warrant does not need to be "approved". After a person has been found guilty of a crime, personal property can be confiscated but it depends on the nature of the crime.

Third; I do not work for a company or agency so good luck getting me fired. (I'm self employed) You should also know that a suspect of a crime CAN work for a company until proven guilty in a court of law.

And finally, thank you for informing me of the existence of the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission). I did not know this agency existed. I can now forward this email to them so that they may begin their own investigation into your activities.

Have a very nice day. smile


I'm think I'm enjoying this. smile Wonder if I'll hear anything back?

I've been getting scam calls from "Microsoft Certified Professional Security Division" lately.   I always direct them to my new address

26 Federal Plaza, 23rd Floor
New York, NY 10278-0004

and ask if they can call me back at my "business number."

Re: Spam

This was a funny post, and your reply was brilliant.

It reminded me of a question my later father would ask me when I tried to lie to him as a kid.  I'll censor it to remove words that might be offensive.:

"How G-- d-----d dumb do you think I am?"  Fortunately, I was wise enough to recognize it as a rhetorical question, long before I heard the phrase, and never answered the question.:)  The jerk who sent this scam email must have burned out both brain cells, "thinking" that anyone would believe that letter.

I have received similar email and the occasional telephone calls from a scammer who claimed to be calling from "Windows", claiming that my computer has a virus and he was calling to fix it over the phone   Anyone stupid enough to fall for either of these scams almost deserves to be taken to the cleaners..
