I post this email (bellow) i just received (and thousand before) just to share with everybody and warn my dear readers of spam.
My friends, this kind of email spam will come us in every tactic and style you will ever imagine. Please beware! They are getting smarter now, they come with slow and subtle approach.
Last week (True story) after a few emails communication, and to my surprise, I received a call from a guy coming down to Malaysia from India. First, I don't want to entertain but after considering his long journey, I finally ask him to come over to my office to meet me.
FYI, he contacted me before asking for my help for one friend of him charged under dangerous drug act in Malaysia.
After the meeting, I found out that he was a victim of spam email that lured him to Malaysia in promise that the 'charged' person will pay him huge amount of money if he could get him out.
Poor fellow, wasting money and time just coming down to Malaysia hush to find out the whole thing is a scam.
There was nothing else I could do (as all the contacts and case info were all invalid and i could not help him to lodge a police report) beside advise him to pack his beg and go back to India asap.
So please be very careful of nowadays email scam!!
