I Don't Speak French but…….

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Like most of us, I am pretty used to winning the lottery in other parts of the world and being notified by email. As we all know, you don't have to even buy a ticket to win, you just respond to the email with personal and private information and then send some "processing money" and viola..... you have it wrapped up. Well today something new, I was notified by an email written in french that I had Euros waiting. I don't speak french but I am pretty sure the context of the message was the same. So I guess there are no limits to what you can get, if you just are open to it. I deleted the email.

Smart move, Sheila! Even in another language, isn't it nice to know that you can smell a scam?

Good afternoon friends and thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments and offering your support: I really appreciate it.

Hello Rob. This is scary stuff, and I don't even open attachments from people I do know. If it's important they will tell me about it first and use snail mail. It is a dangerous world out there. Thank you.

Hi Renae. A scam is a scam in any language and when I saw a Euro amount...Well I wasn't responding anyway but this made it very easy. Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by.

Hello Anna or should I say Bonjour....:) So you read french? If you could network in France I might reconsider. In any event it is always good to hear from you. Bye, bye......

Thanks all and enjoy the afternoon.

Sheila

I had a company mail a ceck to someone when I was a cop.  They brought the check to me with all the paperwork.  No where was there any indication they were under any obligation for anything it was just free money.  I suggested they take it to an attorney.  The did they cashed the check and the company went berserk.  Nothing happened it was truly free money (not) but the person got away with it.  Priceless
