Don't send any money for obviously this is just a
Please be guided accordingly.

I was at first skeptical and very hesitant to extend any assistance since it really sound so far-fetched and "not you"...but then I was also presuming you might be really in need . So I emailed you back with a "sermon" :-)
I know the letter does not "sound you" but then I tried to help because you are my friend. Good thing, naagapan mo agad...Nagsermon pa nga ako....LOL.

Hi Bingkee,
No harm done my friend. I am very grateful for your very kind and generous thoughts. Praise the Lord that you did not fall for their insidious schemes. Thanks for your visit and your willingness to extend a helping hand. I will never use my blogging for any personal motives. I only blog for the Lord. God bless you always my friend.

Hi Caryn,
Yes, they almost destroyed my credibility and almost succeeded in bilking money from innocent addressees in my inbox. Good thing nobody fell for their insidious scheme. Be careful with your communications for these hackers are everywhere. Thanks for your visit and concern. I appreciate that. God bless.

Hi Gagay,
Just be careful when opening unknown letters and invitation to log in and share personal information. These hackers are really vicious. They solicit money from all addressees in the inbox of those account they take over. Until now I still could not access my yahoo account. I pray to God that they have not been successful in victimizing any of my addressees. Thanks for your visit my young friend. I have been voting for you everyday. God bless you always.

Hi Shawie,
My wife in the US and some of my friends notified me about solicitation letters circulating among my acquaintances asking for financial help. That is the reason I have to post this warning advisory. Be careful always before giving personal information to unknown recipients. Thanks for your visit and concern. I appreciate that. God bless you always.
