I've gotten e-mails like this, too. I've gotten ALOT of them (recently..) about PayPal. Just for future reference to everyone. If PayPal sends 'you' an e-mail (and it's a legit one) they will provide your name and User ID in the letter. If they don't, be aware it's a scam. AS SOON as you click it, whoever has sent it will get your e-mail address and User ID. If ANY of these e-mails sound 'too good to be true', it probably is.

I know a few people who HAVE fallen for these scams. I work with the Elderly. One certain woman I work with, has gotten a few calls. This person, who called, said the woman ( gave her name) had won some lottery and needed to verify some of her information. Theu ALSO wanted an "insurance fee" to cover the money "which will be wired to her." They wanted a Credit Card or Bank account number. Yea...right.

Usually if the phone number has that (+) in front of it, is a phone number for overseas. And..if it's overseas, don't fall for it. Where do these people get our e-mail addresses? God knows.

SMO65........I agree. ALOT of us try to be self-sufficient. There are 'programs' ( banks, finance companies, etc..) to help us out on things. However.....there is a difference between someone working for what they have and dealing with things THAT way..and..those people sitting around and expecting everyone else to pay their bills, etc. Don't misunderstand me..I DO know there are people who CAN'T work ( for physical, mental reasons..) and that's not THEIR fault. This 'bailout thing' can go BOTH ways.

I was talking more about the Sociialist rantings that I have been hearing recently from politicians, all the way from State Reps up the line to one of the presidential candidates. I don't need the Government to help me, and most able-bodied people don't either. But since they get something for "free" (i.e. paid for by you and me via taxes), they'll take it. My husband comes from a sociialist country and mark my words, there is a civil war coming soon there, and most of their problems are DIRECTLY tied to the sociialistic mentality in their Government.

No..JESSEE, I don't think it will ( on the forum, anyway..). Did anyone watch the Debate last night, by the way? I din't. Anyway...back to 'Scam e-mails'. Got a few more, on the internet, last night. There was one I got that ACTUALLY said i was " a decendent of a very wealthy gentleman...." Don 't these people ever give up?
