There is a new nigerian scam going on and I have lost the access to my hotmail account and I was called by a few colleagues from my database, that something is not going right. I have changed my msn accounts and request you to do the same and not accept any messages from public mail accounts of which ever manner. Do not click on the URL to find the automatic redirection, instead paste in the browser. Many of you may have recd. such mails, this scam is leading to catch paypal,card systems and money bookers where ever you do your transaction. I wanted to alert you. Best regards, Brandis

Not new May 26, 2008

Hi Brandis,
Sorry to hear about your problem.
But the truth is that it is not new. I experienced this sometime in 2005 but I couldn't track the source and didn't understand the why and how of it. I was simply glad when it all started working normally (after several days).
FYI I managed to keep my MSN account. But I had to inform all my contacts that as I didn't have access to my MSN account I was not responsible for any e-mail/ message that they may receive.
Hope your problem will be resolved soon.
Ritu

Halo Bitu Bhanot, The calamity had happened and many colleagues and customers in my database have been contacted. It requires much time and energy to save this situation. I wonder really how many others in my database were affected. It is now a time process. Best regards, Brandis
