Level of Annoyance (1-10): 8
Complaint Details: This is beginning to really annoy me. My "annoyance level" is climbing daily on this. I am being solicited, almost on a daily basis, by Internet scam artists. At the end of this "complaint you will see 10 email solicitations. I have copied each one in it's entirety, including all misspellings. Apparently I have either won or inherited $112,000,000 (US) and two other inheritances of an undisclosed amount.
Where is it written that I am a chump? I look in the mirror and I do not see "patsy" written on my forehead. How many of the scammers are there? Why can't they be stopped?
I really wonder how many people actually get scammed by them?
I did notice that out of the ten, nine had Yahoo email addresses. Maybe Yahoo should try to monitor this type of scam.
Following are 10 actual solicitations, in their entirety. I have numbered them from 1-10 so you can tell where each one begins and the other ends.
