LOL if peolpe would just read half of the email they would realize its a scame, and 90% of the time something is misspelled in the email. That is a dead gove away. I received an email once saying it needed my Social because my "Tax Return has been accepted, but not yet field with the IRS." I mean common people if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. If it sounds terrifying, dont give them anything over the internet! Common sense goes a LONG way!

Trust nobody! When the waiter takes your bank card to charge your meal, are you certain he's doing just that; that is-just swiping it to pay for your meal? Perhaps, he's visiting Amazon.com or...? Did you ever ask yourself,"What's taking him so long to return it?" You are going to be had sooner or later.

NOT THE DINOSAURS AGAIN. 10TV get's a penny for everyone who clicks on the ad so they force you to click it out of the way. I doubt the advertiser knows that one really isn't clicking on it because they are interested.
