We may receivejunk emails and messages every day. Apart from sale ads, there are a large partof stories that are made up with various reasons among the information in orderto get you cheated.
I had ever received such a long email in English,which fromone of my foreign friends who has frequent contacts with me. He said in theletter that he had arrived in Guangzhou.Unfortunately, the luggage had been stolen. As a result, the passport and moneyalso ran away. He asked me what he should do because he was unfamiliar with China.I replied him immediately. I told him whom he should look for and how to callthe police. He also gave me a reply to say “thank you” and so on. At last, heasked me indirectlyif I could send some money to him. It was until now that I had a glimmer ofvigilance. But I still asked his bank card numbers. To my surprise, just asecond he gave me the account which belonged to the Industrial and Commercial Bankof China.The speed of feedback made me more skeptical.So I called another friend who knows the foreign friend. And I got theinformation that the foreign friend doesn’t come to China. So I sent an E-mail to that"friend" to ask him the place we met at the first time. As a result, I didn’t receive any reply. What a risk! Afterwards, I knew that my friend's mailboxwas hacked. Hackers used his emails’ records with his friends to send all kindsof messages to defraud. Fortunately, no one bit the bail. There are plenty of similartricks like this.
Well, we also often heard from some nobles’ or widows’ emailsto invite us to share the expensive heritages, lotteries or something from Africantribes. I have no idea whether you had ever met a similar experience or heardabout the story about cheating like this.
