SCAM WARNING! by TERRY S on 2 May 2009 10:01pm
 
Just to warn you guys there is a email going around (with an attachment in blue writing) saying you have won a load of money from the British Lottery Comission. It looks like bogus email. It's called Happy Happy day or something. You have been warned.

If it looks too good to be true...it probably is. Thanks Terry.

Those emails are usually either scams to get you to send a "processing fee" or other money, or they're looking for credit card numbers, or social security numbers so they can steal your identity. I never answer emails from anyone I don't know, and I NEVER, NEVER open attachments in emails from anyone I don't know. They're often viruses or worms.

Yes, bB, I can now add my own assurances that wildinAfrica is OK, on the level, One Of Us.

Zimbabwean dollars!!! Is there enough transport in the world to carry them all?
 
Re: SCAM WARNING! by bIG bLOGGER on 11 May 2009 5:16pm
 
Thanks Linda!

Wild In Africa has a suitably palinesque sense of humour.
However,this once only,I WILL accept Zimbabwean dollars. You will probably need a pantechnicon. No,make that TWO pantechnicons.... :)
