SPAM Warning

I seriously doubt that I can be the only one getting this PM from "melinda100":

Hello Dear,
My name is Mrs Melinda Lagman,I am sorry the way these email came to you but I hope you will understand that its out of circumstances that I have contact you, am The wife of Mr.Popoy Lagman The leader of the militant BMP trade union federation and prominent leftist, Filemon “Popoy” Lagman, who was assassinated by four gunmen opened fire while Lagman was visiting the Diliman campus of the University of the Philippines.
During my husband's regime as the director of Philippines board of Petroleum import and export and long-time leader of the country's revolutionary movement, I realized some reasonable amount of money from various deals that I successfully executed and my business in the united state of which the Government has block most of my account in the bank of America, trying to leave me with nothing. Well before my late husband was killed, I secretly put in a box the sum of $16,000,000 million USD (Sixteen million United States dollars) and deposited it in a security company abroad.
You can read about the killing of my husband here (Green Left - PHILIPPINES: Popoy Lagman assassinated)
I am contacting you because I want you to help me in securing the money and help me leave Philippines since the government now monitor all my movement because of they want silence me and also which right now I am leaving in absolute hardship. I hope to trust you as you will not sit on this money when you claim it. I am ready to give you 25% of the total money for your assistance. If you are willing to help me,
God Bless you as you help,
Best regards,
Mrs Melinda


And I am SURE that you don;t need to be told this; but watch out ............
I can't believe that anyone would still fall for this oldie-but-goodie, but forewarned is forarmed

I receive about four to six spams a week. Aka "you have won the lottery", from various lawyers about my being a heir to a fortune, or someone needs to move money and for a few dollars (thousands of your $$). The painted money where they need a special paint remover or something. And so on, so forth and other schemes that are put out there to hook you and drain your bank accounts.

Thanks for the notice Ajari...she will be toast momentarily. I suspected something with her first ten posts and now you have confirmed it.
Anyone else getting spam PM's from "members" please let a mod know immediately. Thanks!

Speaking of spam, I got an email this morning asking me if I'd like to add 3 inches to my manhood.

I was going to reply, but then I got to thinking... What the heck would I do with 15 inches of manhood?
