This is supposedly Anna Hernadez, dropping her knickers just for me. If I visit her website I'll see lots more of her. Really? I received an identical e-mail from a different girl. Russian Mafia, methinks. Then there are those religious widows in Africa who need help getting their dead husband's loot out of the country. They usual end their messages "God bless, dear". Nigerian Mafia. You've won the Euro Lottery; just send a few quid to your agent in Italy or Spain and he'll get you the readies; oh, and a few more quid and a few more.... Then there are those lonely British ladies who strike up an online relationship with one of our boys serving in Afghanistan and send him money, because he's a bit short. Thousands of pounds later, they discover they've been bankrolling criminals! The latest scam is a phone call from an Indian call centre claiming to represent Windows or Microsoft and advising you that your computer has a virus. Just follow the caller's directions to a website that will remove it. Oh yeah? Steal all your bank details, more like it. I've had five such calls this year. What can we do about such scams? Our police are useless. At last the Attorney General's Office has woken up to the fact that Brits are losing billions of pounds every year to foreign criminals. Yesterday the National Fraud Authority launched a dedicated e-mail service Action Fraud to which we can forward copies of all the e-mail scams we receive. Its address is email@example.com (title link).
