This showed up in my Spam folder today:

From: Final Notice
Subject: Your Sam's Club Membership Bonus Needs Confirmation. Member #716

I have never been a member of Sam's Club in my life. Why would anyone open a mail that is from "Final Notice" even if you are a member?

Everybody that has an internet presence does.  These people have no scruples, but they DO have a need to scam anyone for MONEY.

I get scam emails all the time and get scammers trying to buy stuff I've had on Craigslist. The last Craigslist scammer I strung along for more than a week before finally admitting I knew he was trying to scam me. Never heard from him again. I thought we were friends. :(
Same here.  I'm moving right now, so selling lots of stuff through Craigslist.  Every ad gets a few scam  hits, a lot of them bots.  The typical scam asks for merchandise in exchange for a cashiers check, which will bounce two days after deposit (a fake check). But too late, the merch is gone, and the depositer is on the hook for the value of the check.

I receive scam e-mails and also scam calls at times.

I usually don't read, delete and block them. Always.  :lol:

I received a text message a couple of weeks back, saying my Apple ID was due to expire and that I had to contact them with my details to update it. I don't have an Apple product.
