Beware of Emails-"I sent you $225!"

Last Update: October 31, 2013

I don't know if any of you have been sent an email from someone at this email address: support@superaffacademy.com (please don't click on it). I have received more than one from an Emma stating that money was sent to me and I had to click on a link to claim it (that is a red flag right there). I have been sending them to the spam folder. Does anyone else have an experience with this type of email? I'd be interested in hearing from the members.

Now that we are dealing with affiliates, increasing our contacts, and creating all kinds of internet communications, I guess the chances are greater that we will run into those kinds of spam. Be careful

Avoid opening anything re a windfall from someone you've never heard of. The email you received is probably hoax number 3 523 117. I think the hoax Nigerian emails and those from other areas of Africa take up the the first 3 200 000. By the way that number is me kidding around!

It'd the newest email marketing ploy yo get people to watch there internet gurus get rich quick schemes. I use it against them by creating a review of the Internet product that they are promoting and posting it on my Wealthy Affiliate promo website and get people to join our wonderful community here.
Have a great holloween

Thx Tommy...great idea. I'm afraid to open the email to find out what the product is. I might get a virus!

I have not gotten one yet. Hackers that create viruses use more complex ways yo get them out they have graduated from email. Besides that you can scan it before opening with most email providers.

Hello Michael, if an email title has a dollar sign in it, delete it...lol. No one is out there waiting or wanting to give you, or me, or anybody money, so that title is a dead giveaway to its true nature. It never ceases to amaze me that some people believe otherwise. One of my referrals once said to me, "but it must be true, he is wealthy, he can afford to give money away". Hello --- the wealthy are the least likely to give money to anyone. That is why they are wealthy! ~Jude

Happens all the time. The dollar amount varies. The most common part that tips me off is when they say I'll have to check my paypal for instructions to get it. What it leads to (all the time) is a video, of a guy (same one) who is pulling his newish car, up to a big house (that has never been dirty) and talking with his gorgeous wife (HA!) and this is all preluded by FINALLY. Someone in YOUR AREA is taking orders! Click here! Well, I tired it -once and was so disgusted! The idea (have a viral advertising site) was valid but the ads they sent to it for drawing people (or suckers) were SO awful and trashy! I thought if I saw THAT ad, you bet I would NOT buy!

Like you, they now go to a filtered area :)
