Subject: i need true genuine love only

Aloha, gentleman
Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one
agrees on just what it is.
Sweetheart, I sent a kiss on a refreshing wind: the kiss howled
across the plaints and flowers; it brushed the underbrush; it
stroked the cattails; it kicked up a dust storm; it made the cactus
bristle; it teased the lilies; it snuck across the shore and stirred
the ocean; and whipped through sails, it picked up the scent of
gardenias and honeysuckle; it wrote, ?I need you? in the clouds? and
finally it arrived at your door hoping to find you because I am
looking for you, my love www.findloveon.in/

NACHA PHISHING ALERT - EMAIL CLAIMING TO BE FROM NACHA

The Electronic Payments Association has received reports that individuals and/or companies have received a fraudulent email that has the appearance of having been sent from NACHA and signed by a non-existent NACHA employee. Specifically, this email claims to be from the “Electronic Payments Association” and appears to be coming from the email address "payments@nacha.org.” See a sample of the email below.

Be aware that phishing emails frequently have attachments and/or links to Web pages that host malicious code and software. Do not open attachments or follow Web links in unsolicited emails from unknown parties or from parties with whom you do not normally communicate, or that appear to be known but are suspicious or otherwise unusual.

NACHA itself does not process nor touch the ACH transactions that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions. NACHA does not send communications to individuals or organizations about individual ACH transactions that they originate or receive.

If malicious code is detected or suspected on a computer, consult with a computer security or anti-virus specialist to remove malicious code or re-install a clean image of the computer system.

Always use anti-virus software and ensure that the virus signatures are automatically updated.

Ensure that the computer operating systems and common software applications security patches are installed and current.

Additional information and guidance on phishing is available from the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Be alert for different variations of fraudulent emails.

No need to file a Form SS-4. We ask you the questions and you give us the answers. After all validations are done you will get your EIN immediately upon completion. You can then download, save, and print your EIN confirmation notice.
This EIN is your permanent number and can be used immediately for most of your business needs, including opening a bank account, applying for business licenses, and filing a tax return by mail. However, no matter how you apply (phone, fax, mail, or online), it will take up to two weeks before your EIN becomes part of the IRS' permanent records. You must wait until this occurs before you can file an electronic return, make an electronic payment, or pass an IRS Taxpayer Identification Number matching program.
Due to a high volume of requests for EINs, the IRS will begin limiting the number of EINs assigned per day to a responsible party. Effective April 11, 2011, a responsible party will be limited to five (5) EINs in one business day. This limit is in effect whether you apply online, by phone, fax or mail.

Potential Hurricane Irene Phishing Scams

In the past, US-CERT has received reports of phishing scams and malware campaigns related to topics that are of high-interest to the U.S. Government or news media, such as Hurricane Irene. Users' systems have been compromised by receiving and accessing phishing emails with subject lines that seem relevant to a high-interest subject and appear to originate from a valid sender. US-CERT reminds users to remain vigilant for potential malicious cyber activity seeking to capitalize on interest in Hurricane Irene. Users are advised to exercise caution in handling any email with subject line, attachments, or hyperlinks related to Hurricane Irene, even if it appears to originate from a trusted source.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to use caution when encountering these types of email messages and take the following preventative measures to protect themselves from phishing scams and malware campaigns:



  • Do not follow unsolicited web links in email messages.



  • Use caution when opening email attachments. Refer to the Using Caution with Email Attachments Cyber Security Tip for more information on safely handling email attachments.



  • Maintain up-to-date antivirus software.
    Refer to the Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams (pdf) document for more information on avoiding email scams.



  • Refer to the Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks Cyber Security Tip for more information on social engineering attacks.

Subject: Need Your Advice On Something (And I’ll Bribe You for It)

If you are not able to view this email, click here.

Hello,

I'm so thankful for the hundreds of responses to my survey about my upcoming course, $100K+ Job Search Secrets. Based on what I've heard, I'm going to be adding some additional content to the course that will make it even more effective and pertinent.

But this means I'll be delaying the formal course launch a bit.

In the meantime, I could really use your help with something. Although much of the course is online, a good deal of important printed content goes along with it — and I'd be grateful for your feedback on what I now have.

I've placed an order with the printer for 200 copies that'll ship by August 1. And I'd like you to be one of the first to review one of them.

It's going to cost me around $48 per copy to print and send this written material to you. If you'll help me cover just a token of the cost, I'll go ahead and Express Mail it to you by August 2 to preview. (I'll also give you access to the online portion of the course on August 1.) I can ship it to you for just $7.00-barely the price of the mailing.

I plan on selling the course for $497.

Why am I printing only 200 copies? Simple: I'm using a commercial printer and that's his minimum run.

When these copies are gone, they're gone—and I won't be making this offer again.

You'll still be able to get the course, but it won't be available to others until next fall or winter, depending on how long it takes me to add the additional content.

So go ahead and check out the course—really use it for about a month. And if you get great results from it and think it's awesome, don't do anything and I'll bill you the balance the first week of September. But if you don't like it, let me know and I'll never bill you, and you can keep the material anyway.

Because what interests me most is getting your feedback on the course.

To thank you for your effort, I'll provide you a course update incorporating all the additional content people have told me they want to see. You'll get the best of both worlds:
First, you'll be part of an elite prerelease group that gets the course before everyone else.
Second, you'll be able to put to use what you learn immediately—before everyone else.
Your feedback is critical. Do you like the course? How could it be better? How many $100K+ jobs were you able to get using the material? How many interviews did you get? Did you increase your income? Could you provide me a testimonial? (This would really help me when I formally begin selling the course-I hope you'll remember to endorse me!)

I'd really like to send you the course for $7 and get your feedback after you've read through it.

So … notice a little link below this email to take advantage of this offer?

Go ahead and click it!

Because I'm printing only 200 advance copies, I can't do this for everyone. So please don't circulate this email. This is a prerelease offer—I just want your feedback on the course.

Let me know what you think!
All the best,

Ha***on B***es, Esq.

Secure Wireless Networks Available

Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at 9:00am, Fordham IT will be enhancing the security of the wireless networks at the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, and Westchester campuses. In order to do so we will be adding Service Set IDentifiers (SSIDs) to the current list of wireless networks. These networks will use the WiFi Protected Access II (WPA2) protocol and they require a key (password) to encrypt your wireless network traffic.

To access the secure wireless networks, simply select one of the following available wireless networks and enter the WPA2 Key when prompted for a password:

Campus SSID WPA2 Key
Rose Hill FORDHAMRH-S FORDHAMRH-S
Lincoln Center FORDHAMLC-S FORDHAMLC-S
Westchester FORDHAM400-S FORDHAM400-S


The following links contain more information on how to connect to and configure your wireless access:

MAC OSX
http://www.ehow.com/how_4810985_use-wpa-wpa-macbook.html

Windows XP/7
http://www.ehow.com/how_8303816_connect-wpa2-network-xp.html
http://www.ehow.com/how_6776930_connect-computer-wirelessly-router.html

Please note the existing unsecured wireless networks, FORDHAMRH, FORDHAMLC and FORDHAM400 will remain active and available, however, they are discouraged from being used and will ultimately be phased out. Additional wireless security enhancements which will integrate with your AccessIT ID, will be added in the coming months.

If you are unable to connect to a WPA2 network, make sure you update all network drivers to the latest versions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the University Help Desk at 718-817-3999 or via e-mail to helpdesk@fordham.edu.

Subject: WORST CASE SCENARIO(NEED HELP)
I'm sorry for not informing you about my trip to UK and presently I'm writing with tears in my eyes, I and my family came down here to (Cardiff, Wales)United Kingdom, for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash,credit cards and cell were stolen off us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.

I have been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves pretty soon from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills. your contribution will go along way here. Please be so kind to reply back so i can tell you what to do and how to get some cash to us...

Am freaked out at the moment.

Kim.
