    I receive all these every day, but most are directly channelled into my spam folders. It is quite fun to look at how those scammers attempted every trick on the book to trick users into clicking their links. One thing I have learned is never to click links send via email, I rather type in the link onto the location bar, a few seconds more, but I guess it is worth it. With the number of scammers on the Internet, it is often better to be safe than sorry.
