This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Spam: Fake Rolex Watches

This one is slightly amusing. Received from [] ( on Fri, 25 Mar 2005 13:47:42 +0000. Subject: "Rolex watches starting under $99.99" -- yeah, right! Craptastic replicas are us, inc. And then, this little gem in the body: "Who can resist a 24kt. white gold Rolex watch surrounded in stainless steal?" I think that the "steal" part is a fair indicator of the level of integrity involved here. It should go without saying that you never deal with any random shonks that try to sell you something by spamming you: the risk of fraud is ludicrously high. And if that isn't enough to put you off, here's a scare-mongering article from Reuters entitled "Don't Buy That Fake Rolex! It Could Finance Terror". See? Avoid at all costs.
