    I've had dozens of those over the past month. With several hundred spam emails getting to my inbox each month (and that's after various filters applied to my email account on the server) I've noticed that you seem to get waves of a certain 'subject' and the last few weeks have certainly seen a lot of 'friends' sending me ecards Smile

    Yup some sort of scam - though I was tempted by:

    Along with the Royal bank of Scotland ones, which I believe have now changed to Alliance and Leicester ones, it's getting decidedly dodgy out there.

    i have had tons of people writing to me asking if i'd like to be the recipient of thousands of dollars for helping them get rid of jackpot lottery wins, mostly from people called mohummad or muheesh and such like, also i have been told i am the lucky winner of the UK lottery (which i don't do) and they need my information to make payment.....if only it were true!

    I love the fact that they say things like

    "A partner has sent you..."

    As if anyone in a relationship would refer to themselves in this way. Maybe it means a business partner - ah I'd better go open it. I mean it was my birthday yesterday. Funny thing is I didn't receive any e-cards on a day I might have been tempted to open them Smile
