I got two spam e-mails this morning that Gmail didn't filter. The first one had GM as the subject line and an attachment labelled Gmail. I was using my cell phone so I went ahead and opened it, figuring that if it was a virus worst case scenario I could erase my phone and start over. It was a letter claiming that I was chosen by Gmail to win $5000, and all I had to do was send my contact information and gender to the attached e-mail address. The e-mail address was Outlook, not Gmail. Gee, how stupid do I look?
The second one was even better. The second claimed to be a job offer. The English was broken and forced. It said I would make "not less than $4000 per month" and all I would have to do is work for a few hours. It said that I would receive large amounts of money in my bank account, and after sending 80% to them, whomever them is, I would keep 20% for myself. Get this. It even said "No laws will be broken as long as you work with us". So again I ask, Gee, how stupid do I look?
These are more Scam e-mails than Spam, and the scary thing is that people actually fall for them. They peek their interest and they think that since they received the e-mail it must be legitimate.
