The spamming here reminded me of all the people who abuse the internet and also the new ways we have to communicate. Of course all of us know about the Nicaraguan scam where you are told you won the UK lottery and all you have to do is send your bank account information so that a representative for you can receive your huge winnings (cough, cough). Or the one where Miss Smithering died and left you her fortune because she has no heirs and all you have to do is send a check for a lawyer in another country. I've come across a few other ones and wondered if you had any to add. Thought I'd try a lighter thread after the spamming. This one is from Craigslist. We have been looking to rent a house because Sonic isn't going to be able to get into his apartment of choice yet so we need three bedrooms and want to get out of the small town we live in. So I noticed there were a few really nice looking rental homes with a yahoo address, which is odd because Craiglist has it's own e-mail. But I wrote to one anyway and got a response from somebody saying you can't see the house until you give permission for a credit check, which includes sending information about your bank account and a check for $39.90 to some website for the police check. It has to be working. We can't flag them fast enough and more are on. Any other scams going around?
