Speaking of Scams

Before of emails asking you to take a quick survey asking  you to  rate your recent purchase at Home Depot and you have a chance to  win a prize.    I have also seen same thing for other purchases  at other merchants as well.  Look at the address where the survey came from-it is obviously not HD.  They are clever-they use the HD colors etc  They will attempt to get your CC number as you "only pay shipping fee" for  your prize.

I spent 20 minutes on phone with someone at HD weeks ago  putting them on trail of  this  scam but I continue to see the solicitation

I have several email accounts, which I use for various separate things.  I have one that I give freely to all those clowns and I haven't checked that account in years!  Same with my phone number.  I used to have a land line, but got rid of it several years ago.  The number is still mine, because I have a DSL account, but there is no phone connected.  All those clowns have that number, but I never hear from them! :)

I just got these two emails show up in my spam folder. I'd love to just open them and reply back "Yes, I own big gold mine. I need to immediately purchase one hundred dozers and wheel loaders. I send cheque you ship now!"
