Received in E-mail at my work address:-----Dear customer,joemartinproject,Notification for Payment Received!This email confirms that you may have received a $16,000.00 Commission Payment for May 2001-----from Bank_of_Caymens@excite.com Fat chance you're gonna see $16K or even $16.00.I lump this kind of email with the other junk that comes in email, snail mail and knocking at my door. I prefer not wasting the time to even let them know some one exists at that email/street address. No need to "encourage" them.* * * BTW, speaking of scams, on an unrelated topic, I'm wondering how many home-based business people and ERs (with all this time on their hands around the ol' homestead) are familiar with “dead ringers?” See an interesting article by Richard Smith, the privacy guy at :his websitehttp://www.privacyfoundation.org/commentary/tipsheet.asp?id=30&action=0 I get quite a few of these and since I've read this article, I now answer my phone and wait about 2-3 seconds for a response before hanging up. 99.9% of the callers I hang up on don't call back. I assume none of these calls are friends or from people who know who they're calling. I don't find these calls so annoying anymore.
