Dear Harry: I must be on someone's sucker list.
During the last two weeks, I have been receiving e-mails regarding money that's mine:
* Sarah Welsh wants me to contact authorities in Nigeria for $10 million due from her late husband.
* Dr. Philip Aliu asked me to contact Western Union for payment of $5,000 per day due me from the estate of Dr. David Williams.
* Contact Zeng Q. Zheng from Lloyd's to receive money they are holding for me (no amount specified).
* Cheng Guanguan of the Bank of China is holding $17 million for me from lottery winnings.
* John Kenneth has $1.4 million for me, but needs tax money of $225 in a money order to get it released.
I know that these are very possibly frauds.
The trouble is that I don't know how to stop them from sending these e-mails.
I averaged five a day for the last two weeks! Help!
What Harry says: I've seen this type of stuff many times over many years, but you're the champion.
Did you once answer one of these phonies?
I have no other idea how you got on these lists, but I can suggest ways to get off.
If you can set the filter on your e-mail to reject these as junk, they will slowly disappear.
A more effective, but a little more troublesome, way is to change your e-mail address.
