A hoax can be defined as “Something intended to deceive; deliberate trickery intended to gain an advantage” (WordWeb) or in simplicity a deliberate or carefully thought in advance to trick people into believing something real. Yeah absolutely the question rises why am I writing this now ,The fact of the matter is on the last weekend I got some leisure time so I think of spending this time with some real internet research so that I can derive something important for blog subject and the first to start is from the spam folder of my Gmail.

Why, as I want to write on articles on hoax mail so that all will be enlightened about the faux mail and in fact wit these kinds of mails people are cheated , so better be safe than sorry , so that is why from now on in subsequent issues I will be writing about some of the faux mails which I receive in the spam of Gmail and help you to identify the trend so that you will be alerted as well as we can spread this message and alert the normal web users.If you have received any mails claiming that you won millions or help you to won millions is a fraud mail. As the best way to stop this menace is to do not respond them , do not click on links or open the attachments embedded within them.

Later in this post I will be copy paste about such hoax mail which I receive so that you can at least know the trend these hoaxers are using into. Hers is an example of hoax mail which I received on Gmail spam folder.You can read this mail and know the trend of this hoaxers and do not be persuaded by these.The surprising fact is that this mail is from Mr. Dimitri Ambrovich [email protected] and to [email protected] but it is straight in to my Gmail spam. So, beware of these types of malwares and their proficiencies.
