As I have been in the hospital with my new laptop, my Skype keeps going off with people from Ghana wanting money or something. Nothing but people from Ghana!!!!

Hi Rooster!


Great hearing from you!

I hope the operation went well and that you are well on the mend.


Has  a Ghanaian princess asked if she could deposit $10 million into your bank account yet? 

You just have to send her your account number. She'll give you a million for your trouble. :)

:D Thank you and I'm doing well. Got both eyes done and two operations on my liver. Find out more next week.


That's all I seem to get on Skype! But they all sweet talk me and then ask for money!!! LOL

Very glad to hear you're doing well.

I didn't know about your eyes. Cataracts?

I'm amazed that they still try that old sweet talk/ask for money scam. Doesn't everyone in the world know about it by now? I guess they must find new marks all the time, or they wouldn't keep doing it.

I haven't seen the "you have won the lottery" scam in ages.

Yes, cataracts in both eyes. Not bad yet but had them done while I was there. I can see great now!

Finally figured out how to shut it down on the Alienware laptop. Now I can see everything again! 

:D

I know scammers well. They contacted me sometimes. Last years, their messages are not frequent in my inbox.

Once, they sent SMS to my mobile phone. It was 16 - 17 years ago. They offered millions of UK pounds. I have no idea how they found phone number. I did not use Internet then.
I found some videos about scammers:
