Never Never Open a Email

Never Never Open a Email
I received a truly sneaky email today, I still am not sure if it is real or fake, it looks very good. I have received similar ones in the past, the thieves keep raising the bar, these thieves are too clever.

I never click on anything related to, Western Union, or any internet system that has my debit card on file. I kind of need to open the emails just to check, but this is dangerous, truly a lose lose situation.


NEVER, Never, Click, I go to the site and check, this is an annoyance, and truly difficult for me to do. In Africa I sat on the a Verizon BlackBerry telephone call for about 45 minutes trying to get my reactivated.( does not like Ethiopia.)

MOM AND DAD, my old parents know I have a account, they get emails from They ask me,
“Do you want use to answer these emails?”

Aaagh, they somehow treat email about the same as snail mail.

NO, please, please, never open a email, there are thieves out there trying to trap you Mom and Dad.

Who knows, I am a smart boy, but to open a emails is unsafe under any and all conditions, just not worth the risk.

I got on Western Union yesterday here in the Philippines, for some reason it says I have a user name. I do not have a user name, I logged in with my email as the user name in the past. So I tried to do that send me a new username thing, it did not work, no explanation, just sat there doing nothing, unprofessional to say the least.

I suspect I am in one of the higher cheat-the-western-union systems countries on planet earth, the Philippines. I will now have to call, hello folks, I am not in the USA, I am sorry, I live a life less normal.... blah blah blah.

Hmm, there are few girls who hang out in the VFW here in Bauang, my curiosity is this, and how many men do they have lined up sending them money? The scams are endless, these are confidence games.

You trust, people know you have confidence in the system and thieve hook on to your trust of paypal and take advantage. Kind of a friend of friend recommended this person.

Girls say, “I love you,” a person that loves you would not steal… or would they, there is a financial moral high ground, often it is not theft in their mind, you are rich and I am poor, you can afford it. and Western Union are two players in the Soap Opera on Steroids called the Philippines, fun stuff, a never-ending story.

I went online and checked my account, I cannot find a problem, now I will need to check if a few times and follow up, what an annoyance.

By clicking on the "Subscribe to Comments" you will receive an email when members post new comments on this page

It's a phish letter. Forward it to "" they will check it out and answer.

The email you received is not from PayPal. PayPal and Western Union never ask you to click on a link in an email to go to your account. They will always ask you to type in their website address and then to sign in. You shouldn't click on links in emails and put in your password that come from FaceBook, MySpace, your bank account or anything that requires a password to login. Just type in the site's URL and login from there.

Most sites that require logins will also have https in the URL, not just http. The s stands for security so you'll know you're on the real website. Also, don't fall for those scams from Nigeria or from anywhere that ask for your bank information promising to give you millions of dollars.

We have used PayPal for many years and have NEVER had any problems since they were bought out by eBay years ago. But of course the type of paypal SPAM you are referring to also comes disguised a Yahoo Alerts etc. etc. which are simply DELETED ASAP.
