Best Internet Marketing Course Question

John asks…

When it comes to internet scammers (e.g. Nigerian Fraud Scams), is it best to not even reply to their emails?

I receive so many scamming emails, typically from Nigerians, soliciting a host of information details, I want to email them back something aggressive to take me off their list. My sense, however, is that ANY response may be a risk in that they of course will not cooperate but will take note that they transmitted to an email address that is actively checked and has a warm body (e.g. potential DUPE in their crooked minds) behind it.

Is that accurate? That is, don’t even respond, even if you have contacted the authorities and alerted them to the email address of the crook trying to scam you?

It becomes like swatting flies after a while and I’m just sick of it which is why I become tempted to chase these jerks, which I have done in the past with some success. I’m just curious if you have any more details on the risks that one may or may not incur by emailing back a single thing to scammers like this.

Thanks for the market intelligence!

Yes. Whenever you click on an email, it alerts the sender that it is a valid email address and more spam is likely to follow. Just delete them unopened and adjust your spam settings for you browser and/or anti-virus if you can.

Hi there, first off let me say congrats on all your achievements and hard work!!

I’ve added some websites for helping you format your resume properly.
Any & all edits etc I’ve made are only suggestions – this is your resume so feel free to do what you’d like with them. You’ve got a lot of great experiences & achievements!!!

I edited in word which let me put my edits in bold etc but I couldn’t do that here – if you would like me to email you the word doc just let me know.

Your education & training etc should be listed prior to your work experience. You also need a heading and objective – the websites can help you with this – choose headings like Professional Experience as opposed to Work Experience etc. Plus make sure to include a cover letter.
