A Danish woman owned two businesses in Dubai - and wants to give money to you? No.

Oh, I don't think so. Don't be fooled or respond by messages like this, just delete them, after laughing that they apparently don't know how to clean up their copy/paste into a hijacked email account.

Domain scammers care about the environment

I received identical copies of this message over a couple of days at several totally unrelated email addresses hovered from various websites that I operate. This is the usual protection racket: If you contact them, they will charge you hefty fees to "protect" your domains. However, your domains are perfectly safe without their protection. Don't be fooled - ignore messages like this. Even if they do claim to care about saving trees.

If you're still alive, they want your money

Such delightful scam - with a subject line that implies that you might be dead, but if not, contact them to get fleeced. Needless to say, this isn't a legitimate communication from the "International Monetary Fund Agency," whatever that is. Delete messages like this, don't reply to them.
