Anyone think I ought to reply??? How can I verify it before I commit? The funny thing is .... it´s suppose to be from Yahoo and yet it came into my Yahoo "spam" folder, not my normal "incoming" post. Does it mean that Yahoo considers its own post defaulted "spam"?

It reads to good to be true, so it probably is not true. I'm sure it's a scam to suck personal information from you. Be VERY careful... :wary2:

If it reads / sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.

It could be that Serrano really does have friends in the CIA and they´ve concocted this intricate plan in order to find out my name, address, phone number, etc. so they know where to send the athrax.

Nahhh... The CIA doesn't fool with people posting in cyberspace, unless they repeatedly issue threats that are specific to the U.S. and / or its interests. Clearly, no one here qualifies as a threat. No need to be paranoid.

Paranoid? Paranoid? Who´s paranoid? I´m not paranoid ... :useless: :innocent:



These messages are always scams. Don't reply to them. I´m sure you´re right. I won´t reply .......... or maybe you´re all envious and don´t want to see me become a millonaire! :petrified: Paranoid? Paranoid? Who´s paranoid?
