Welcome to ScamSpam™ Warnings!

Although this section of is not yet fully developed, I couldn't wait to start bringing you examples of the types of scam letters that drop into my mailbox every day.  Spam may be a nuisance, but the ones offering riches are downright irresistible for some.

Eventually all the letters will be in a searchable database like the one in the Lottery Scams section.  For right now, the first letter will remain on this ScamSpam home page.

So let's get right to it.

Today's Scam Alert has to do with a letter that wants you to think you have won the opportunity to appear in a Warner Bros. movie.  Just fork over $150.00.

Here's the letter, from Malmoe in Sweden:
