Due to the widespread use of web bugsin email, simply opening an email can potentially alert the sender that the address to which the email is sent is a valid address.
This can also happen when the mail is ‘reported’ as spam, in some cases: if the email is forwarded for inspection, and opened, the sender will be notified in the same way as if the addressee opened it.
E-mail fraud may be avoided by:
- Keeping one’s e-mail address as secret as possible.
- Using a spam filter.
- Noticing the several spelling errors in the body of the “official looking” email.
- Ignoring unsolicited e-mails of all types, simply deleting them.
- Not giving in to greed, since greed is often the element that allows one to be “hooked”.
Many frauds go unreported to authorities, due to shame, guilty feelings or embarrassment.
My advice to such victims is, not to waste time folding hands, but to go out and report about them to the respective authorities. Also, you can make your friends aware about these scams, thus saving your friends’ savings.
