Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using your email accounts and avoid responding or accepting rewards or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter. However, still large numbers of people are not aware about these kinds of frauds and become the victim of them. Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic. Target of these mails are mostly new online users who have no knowledge about these kinds of the frauds. It is advisable for the people to not share their personal information like name, address, passport details, account number/password or send any kind of money.
For avoiding such frauds-
1) Do not provide your personal email address to unknown person or submit it to unreliable websites
2) Check email for address for extensions like @reply.ebay.com, @123.ebay.com etc in mail because actual mail will always have @ebay.com and no variation.
3) Always remember that there is nothing free in this world and especially in online world.
4) Always use an email service provider with good spam and fraud control.
5) Always keep updated yourself about the new threats and never respond to mails from unknown origin.
Below are few examples of these mails which are mostly in circulation.

Here writes Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali , suffering from cancerous ailment. I am a widow , My late husband is Engineer Ali H Kasali a Malaysian. He was into private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for two decades without child. My husband died after a protracted illness.My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals, as he had passion for people who can not help
themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can
adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship,
which never came.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 5,600,000 (Five Million, Six Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds Sterling), which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market. Presently, this money is still with the
Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live, due to
the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what burders me most is the stroke that I have in addition to this cancer. With this
hard reality that has befallen my family, I have decided to donate this fund to you, and want you to use this gift which comes from
my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans,
destitutes, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.It is often said that, givers, never lack. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are bourgeois and are very wealthy, and I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be missused or invested into ill perceived ventures.
I do not want a situation where this money will be used contrary to the stipulated agreement. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. With Allah, all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply, I shall give you the contact of the bank in Malaysia. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund via my
Lawyer. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation.
Please always be focused all through your life. Please assure me
that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you
soon, and Allah be with you and members of your family. You can contact methrough my private email address: email@example.com
