These are unsolicited email sent to spin and trap undiscerning email users into a plot of fraud and loss of fortune through all sorts of unlawful deals.
The problem with unsolicited email is not that it comes as unsolicited but its content is poorly crafted and contains no real value to its recipients.
Across the world, young and mature lazy people sit behind the computers sending spam mails with the intent to defraud innocent genuine users.
The Internet remains the greatest platform of interconnectivity, commerce and communications across the world until humans invent a better platform. The activities of fraudsters, prowlers and hackers will not overshadow the good uses of the Internet.
As we usher in 2015, let us resolve to use the Internet for altrustic purposes: to communicate, interact, inform, research, share and do businesses across the world.
Those idle young and old lurking in the dark to cheat and defraud people on the Internet should have a change of heart.
There are good businesses to do and relationships to forge on the web. Let’s pursue these, and protect our personality, data and emails from fraudsters and hackers in the New Year.
This is our last posting in 2014.
Happy New Year to our readers in Sydney and other parts of the world who have already entered the New Year. Here in Lagos, we still have some six hours to go.
The countdown begins ……
Happy New Year, our dear readers.
We will send a New Year message to us after midnight.
We love you all.
