Need for safety while using Email

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.

Example 1-
From: Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali,
33-35 Greenwich Church Street ,
London SE10 9BJ ,
England.


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
Bank.

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: ladyfatimahkasali@myway.com

Warm Regard,
Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali,

Importance of clean environment

Read in Hindi  It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions. People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of a clean environment. Sadly, we see very little being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places in several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue. It is very important for every individual in th

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012. The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given. Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan w

How to get certificate/documents in Digilocker? P.S.E.B Class X Marksheet

  Read in Hindi In the last article, I told you about the simple method to add yourself to the Google search . Today, I will update you about the DigiLocker and how to use it? We live in a digital world where most of the things are available to us digitally. This includes our important documents like school/college certificates, government-issued identity cards, other documents. We can easily access these documents digitally and they are 100% valid for all legal purposes. To get and store these documents, we have a popular app called Digilocker.

Make a Tasty and Healthy Aloe Vera juice at Home (4K Video)

  I am an Aloe Vera lover and I am using this plant for many years and I have always found good results from its use. With time, I have learned to use Aloe Vera properly. There are many Aloe Vera products available in the market but I prefer to make my own Aloe Vera product as much possible. One of them is Aloe Vera juice, we can find many brands of Aloe Vera juices in the market. My reasons for not using them are the high price and use of chemicals (preservatives) in them. By making our own Aloe Vera juice, we can save both money and health.  It is very easy to make Aloe Vera juice and we can make fresh Aloe vera juice every time we need it. We can easily grow an Aloe Vera plant in a small pot and it does not require much care like the other plants. Only you need to give it water every third day in summers and every sixth day in winter. I have my own Aloe Vera plant and it serves all the Aloe vera related needs of my family. With the help of a 4K video made by me on the making an Aloe
