Everyday my hotmail, yahoo and gmail mail boxes are always full of unsolicited spams from people I do not know. Although they are spams or scams I don’t delete them. Instead, I saved them in a folder with marked spams. Why I did not delete them? This article will answer.

Scammers and Hoaxers are looking for Victims

The truth is, we have to understand and even to accept it that spammers, scammers and other hoaxers are using internet and World Wide Web to look for victims. I was almost a victim - look at the picture, my name was inscribed in the ownership title. They are everywhere. Some of them are using forum groups and other egroups, twitter and other social networks to spot for their next victims. And we should not be surprised also that anything we sent off to internet, either they’re personally or privately posted, still they can be accessed by other net users through the power of search engine. I, myself had proven it.

Scammers, Spammers and Hoaxers are great Pretenders

Some of them are pretending as priests, nuns, lawyers, engineers, doctors, accountants, bank managers and other imaginable professions. Others used some remarkable people like Bill Gates, former President Clinton, President Barack Obama and even the present Pope.

Do not Yield to Them

Mostly of the information they are asking from their target victims are your full name, location address, age, profession, contact telephones and bank accounts. Some of them are pretending as yahoo staff customer service employees - asking you to update your account at yahoo for yahoo will delete your account if you failed to do so. Some of them are offering you to become their business partners.

How to Stop Them?

By deleting spams at your spam section could not stop them. Based from my experience and the method I used to stop them from sending unsolicited mails to my mail box, I faced them politely, friendly and professionally by replying them. When I read their messages, I could not identify its senders’ addresses but when I replied them, it was yahoo, google and hotmail who helped me identified the senders’ emails addresses.

My reply reads “I am happy to receive your communication Mr. or Mrs. so and so, and I am interested and very willing to engage business with you. For the meantime visit this link (the link going to my blog article) it caters all the information you needed.” And before ending my email letter, I would write, “Also I would request you to deposit at least 100$ to my PayPal account. Better if you can send the money today to my PayPal account so that we can start our business early.” That method seemed very effective for me. It helped stopped them sending spams.

Why I do not delete Scams or Spams?

Those spams or scams that I received everyday - I considered them as mine of great ideas to write. At least 15% of the ideas I injected on my published articles here at wikinut were from scams and spams!
