The fact that there were 13 more exactly like it.

I get a lot of email. That could be because my email address has been out there for 20+ years.

Today I got an email from BestBuy Geek Squad advising me that I had an invoice for $350 and all I had to do to look at it was sign in to a viewing site.

Well, I am normally a suspicious sort, but when I saw that there were 13 more exactly like it, I became even more so.

I use a program called MailWasher Pro which collects and categorizes my incoming mail and lets me dispose of them easily without the sender having the satisfaction of having reached my actual email address.

Some days it's pretty handy.

Regards,
Russ

the fact that I had charges on my brand new credit card (CHASE) with over 1,000 on one charge from WalMart. I called Walmart instead of Chase first,to find out what it was.
The WalMart folks insisted there was absolutely no charge on my account for that amount. They never sent any such charge to CHASE. What the heck is that?

One employee of Chase told me someone must have made a copy of my card before they even sent it to me. Nice. Looks like an employee is charging me for items I never purchased. So many scams out there.

It's astonishing that there is still a big enough percentage of people who fall for it that they make a lot of money!!
