    FIGHTING BACK: CON ARTISTS ARE DEVIOUS AND CUNNING THIEVES, CONSTANTLY HATCHING NEW VARIATIONS ON SCAMS. STILL, YOU CAN SPOT QUESTIONABLE EMAILS BY CAREFULLY LOOKING BEFORE OPENING YOUR EMAILS.

    If you receive and email that you suspect to be fraudulent, forward it to the FTC:  spam@uce.gov,  then delete the email.  Now you have done your part to report these thieves!!

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!
