I will attempt to show you eight points in a scam email that I received in September 2015. It is a screenshot (picture) off of my computer screen that I annotated and pointed out some of the grammatical and punctuation errors within the email attempting to extract information about the recipient.

  3. 3. Mr. Whyte Holmes is the name he is using for his scam so the sucker on the receiving  end can send his Identification to in order to receive the Fake money.

2.Criminal scams usually originate from countries where English is not the first language.

First ¬†If you actually send your information to¬†Mr. Whyte Holmes you might not get a reply. Instead, at a later time and date your bank accounts, credit card and identity could have been stolen. So don’t give your name address¬†and personal¬†information to anyone offering a large amount of money.

Secondly You could receive the check go to the bank cash it for the amount specified and then a couple of days later the bank bounces the check for NSF Non-Sufficient funds Then you will be held responsible for the amount and possibly end up in Court on Fraud charges yourself.

Finally.

Hopefully, you have been educated on a few of the finer points of avoiding an email scam. Remember to do your research before you delve into any sketchy sounding schemes.
