I keep getting emails telling me that my male private parts aren’t big enough. I’m very upset by this, In the 47 years I have been on this planet, no one has ever complained about them…^^ points to name^^


Natasha from Russia has seen my photo online and thinks I’d make a good husband.


At least you can have a go at a relationship with Natasha. I’ve got no hope as I’ve got this…size…issue…

Here’s one I received this morning. I’ll just use water with a soup soupçon of washing up liquid in future…

I prefer the one that points out you should wash your hair with dishwasher powder because whereas shampoos add body dishwasher products remove fat so it keeps your hair clean and acts as a slimming aid.
Thinking about it perhaps it was a joke not a scam.:slight_smile:

This is a fairly standard one that we seem to get for Apple, PayPal, Amazon etc

Hi there… it asks you for your email address etc etc… :anguished:

I get these, almost invariably accompanied by one to ‘cover my funeral expenses’ - at 77-years old the mind boggles!

Received this today. They are called Cannabis Gummy Chewables.

Make a nice change from wine gums…

Bet its not legal here though, bit of a shame!

Just received this one…fairly standard

Alcohol, the new diet craze. I don’t need to lose any weight but I’ll have another glass just to be sure.

Hi Chris
It appears to give a healthy glow to the skin too… must be red wine :wink: Cheers

Netsafe now have an AI email bot that automatically replies to scam emails, effectively re-scamming the scammer and wasting their time with lots of questions. You just forward the scam email to me@rescam.org and they can even send you a summary of any conversations with the scammer.
Not tried it yet, but anyone else seen this or tried it out?

Thanks Mark…Interesting to hear about Netsafe…

sounds a bit like leaving the phone line “open” on a bogus caller… just waste their time/money not ours… :joy:

Sounds like fun. Might just give it a try.
