You mean that you have doubts that this is a scam?

 

Of course it is!!

 

People get these scam emails all the time, every day.

 

NEVER reply to them.

You have got to be joking?.........I hope you are not seriously suggesting that this is genuine? good God man, you are an Aussie!, with all the publicity on radio, TV, newspapers, magazine and the Net over the past 12 months, warning people of all ages (and people are still getting caught) NOT to be taken in by these scams.

 

Maybe, just maybe your purpose here was to warn people? I certainly hope so. ;)

Always With Kind Regards

Why in the heck would you even question the legitimacy of this SMH

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

This is to Officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an Investigation with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you legally won the sum of $800,000.00 USD from the Bank of America Online Balloting System, which was held at the Bank of America Corporate Center in Charlotte, NC.

Your Winnings have been deposited at the Bank of America (Bank Address: 1375 N Citrus Ave, Covina, CA 91722) and the Bank have been authorized to pay you via a Certified Cashier's Check drawn from the Bank of America.I wish to congratulate you on your winnings; your email address was among those chosen during the Bank of America Online balloting from the new Java-based software that randomly selects email addresses from the web from which winners are selected.

 

Normally, it will take up to 4 business days for a Bank of America Check to be cleared, cashed and remitted into your account by another local bank. We have successfully notified the banks on your behalf that funds are to be drawn from our registered bank (Bank of America) so as to enable you cash the check instantly without any delay, henceforth the stated amount of $800,000.00 USD has been deposited with our bank, Bank Of America in COVINA, CALIFORNIA.

 

We have completed this investigation and you are hereby approved to receive the certified cashier's check into your personal account as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free, due to the fact that the funds is with Bank Of America you will be required to settle the following bills directly to the Bank of America Agent in-charge of this transaction whom is located in Covina, California, United States of America.

The total amount for everything is $750.00 (Seven Hundred and Fifty-US Dollars). We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $750.00 should be deducted from your winning prize but we found out that the funds have already been insured and deposited at Bank Of America, Centralia, Washington and cannot be accessed by anyone apart from you the beneficiary, therefore you will be required to pay the required fee's to the Agent in-charge of this transaction via Western Union Money Transfer Or Money Gram.

 

In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the agent in-charge (Mr. James Dunn) via e-mail.

This has got to be one of those banking scams from Africa. If it includes a phone number, you call the number, then a man in a weird accent speaks, this has got to be from Africa.

 

I have met a guy who says he was about to be scammed by some African man who had a weird accent by the phone. They often had excuses of their bank is about to be bankrupt or they wanted to make partnerships and that sort of thing but this is a very common form of scam yet people still do get victimized by these nowadays.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool

 

If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

Hi Lyronx. I just wanted to say that I hope you don't feel too embarrassed because you didn't realize that this was a common scam. Many many people who are fairly new to the online world have fallen for these type of scams. The important thing is that now you know! "Never ever ever" reply to crap like this and you'll be fine.

I never feel sympathetic to people who fall for this. Only a complete retard would fall for "i have 25 million i trust you as a close friend, i need to transfer it to your bank, il give you 10% but first give me 10k"
