I am one of the recipient of this fraud E-mail asking me to constitute a friendly relationship, extend helping hand and provide the impetus for pursuing her education here in India. I also replied her back through subsequent mails with stating my immense interest in extending the helping hand whenever she needs. So far, she hasn’t replied in response to my last mail which fully consisted of positive attributes from my side as if I am trapped in their conspiracy. What’s more, she went on to reveal her height, complexion, age, marital status and so on. I am certainly not gonna be victimized of their unscrupulous endeavour. but is it supposed to be any kind of exposure to the security risk for my E-mail ID if I keep indulging in further conversations with her?
Waiting for your answers, thank you.
I have a bit of a strange history with computing. I used to spend a lot of time in the underbelly of the internet doing bad things to bad people. It was a great period and we did some amazing things but eventually you get jaded with it all. I still run a website warning people about scams but I am not active against fraud anymore.
Today I got this beautiful comment on my anti-fraud site. The normal replys I get range from “im gonna kill u bastaaaaaaaaard” to “Is this a scam?”
Todays was so nicely put that I couldn’t see how anyone could scam someone as eloquent as this.
