Yup advance free fraud, of course some stranger is willing to give you money.

Re: Bill Gates

It gets better @jaread83 one of the links that email wanted me to check so that I was certain it was indeed sent from the man himself looked like it would of took me to his Wiki page. I never clicked it and removed it from here but it looked like that is where it would have taken me. 100% proof  that this is all legit!!

Re: Bill Gates

Of course it's about time I sold those 1000 M$ shares I bought at $21 each in 1986 with my inheritance money. With splits they've grown to 288000 shares at $74 each. The trouble is owing a minor visa irregularity I can't go to the USA to release them and I need some money to pay someone to sell them in the USA through their bank account on my behalf in return for a 10% cut. ....

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Bill Gates

On a slightly serious note (sorry folks), I'm amazed this kind of thing is still doing the rounds. I remember back in the days when I was very lax in the places I allowed my email address to go, I got a large amount of 'dodgy' mail, but even then knew them for what they were and ignored 'em.

These days, even my Tiscali/TalkTalk addresses which I have still kept, get a miniscule number of spam emails, and my PN ones maybe two or three a year.

Like the spurious phone calls, I've found that if you ignore them for long enough, they dwindle to almost nothing, and frankly I'm surprised either of the 'industries' survive , given the amount of advice on avoiding them that is available.

Re: Bill Gates

On a slightly different note I often get various emails.along the lines of "confirm your twitter account" and other legit online organisations.

I find it hard to believe that numerous people just happen to make up an address that happens to be one of my numerous email addresses.

I wonder if the actual organisations themselves are somehow farming the email addresses then sending out a sort of invite just in an attempt to increase their membership/client base.
