February 16th, 2017 | by Philip Verghese ‘Ariel’ || |
What a joy to get such an email in your inbox right!
Yes, getting a check from such a reputed organization like Google is not an ordinary thing. It surprise us and it gives joy to us.
No doubt every online marketer/writer/blogger would like to read or hear that soothing words!
In fact, that is natural, but the fact is that this mail is nothing but an intimation or an invitation to dupe you in a sweet way by someone or some group from somewhere. See the screenshot of one such mail I received in my spam inbox.
So Beware of the email message like the above one! It looks like an amazing mail with the following subject line:
“Can we post your check?”
or “Your check arrived”
“Your check arrived”
“Answer ‘Yes or No” Can I give your commission.
Google send you $ ….
You’ve made a commission. These are few of the many fake emails land in your inbox.

Yet another similar bogus mail flashing through the mailbox is about the PayPal company notification.
If you are an account holder with PayPal, then Beware! Some notifications like the following one will arrive in your inbox. This screenshot below is the one I received from PayPal (not originally from PayPal but it looks it’s from them.
PayPal Payment Issued:
A mail looks like a PayPal notification! But the fact that it is not from PayPal. I say this firmly because one of my friends’ neighbor who is an employee of PayPal told me that they never send out such mail to its clients. The dupers are using our logo to cheat the gullible customers, please do not respond to such emails instead just press the delete button and forget about it. See the screenshot below:
The real story of Spam mail!
It is good to note that Google mail take the utmost care to its users and filter such mail and send it to the spam folders. Even then, sometimes some important emails go into the spam folder. So check out your spam folder too on a daily basis so that you will not miss any important mail. Be careful when you see such mail and press the delete button at once. Do not mark it as not spam emails! It is no doubt such emails are spam emails only.
I very seldom check my spam folders before, but in the recent time I found out that some of the important emails from some reputed organizations and blogging communities notifications are all going into the spam folder. I complained about my non-receipt of their notification to the concerned and they said: please check your mail’s spam folders! And I did and lo most of the emails from that reputed community I could locate in my spam folder. I informed about this to the community moderator. The same thing happened with few of my other contacts too. Since then almost every day I check my spam folder to find any valuable emails landed in that Hell!
Today I am so glad to write about this awkward situation to make an awareness about it to my fellow beings.
The old cheating trick is still flashing on the internet!
This is a popular ad flashing all around on the internet, cheating people in the name of Facebook.
I have published a post about this cheating advertisement sometime back on my blog page. If you click on that link below you will reach a place exactly like the ad placed by facebook. There you can see the convincing picture of facebook CEO Mark and even Bill Gates picture with a quote:
How sweetly they are continuing their cheating business.
I still wonder! Is not there a law to put such people in chain!
Read about such bogus advertisements floating all over the internet. Please click on this link here to read the pathetic story of a person who falls victim of these cheaters. Facebook Pays India Residents ₹15792day-work-home

My blog comments in Spam folder
The latest in line on this subject is another adverse situation in relation to my blog comments!
These days all the comments I make on other friends’ pages are landing directly to their spam folders!
Fed up with this phenomenon I thought of stop posting comments/feedback on fellow bloggers posts. But I never can do that, since blog commenting is my daily routine business and it is in fact diluted in my daily routine! But that really made me, to slow down my comment writing. Though this is the situation somehow I could not resist from doing that and I have decided to post comment to my fellow bloggers posts and keep a copy of the same in a separate folder and inform about my comment to the author of the post or the blog owner via private mail via Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp or skype or via a separate email to check their spam folders. Most of them found my valuable comments in their spam folder. This again becomes a tedious job, I indeed reduced my speed of commenting on others posts.
This is really yet another awkward situation I face now! To fix this problem I enquired with some of the experts in the technical fields too, someone suggested that you are not using a gravatar for commenting, but that is not the reason since I am using one. Few others suggested that you inform report this to the Admin of Akismet. But that too did not fetch any result. Since I could not fix this problem I started doing a kind of research and I found that may be my long name is giving this trouble to pick my comment and drop into the spam folder. And another thing I thought that may be most often I make long comments, this may be the reason why my comments are considered as spam comments and straight goes to the spam folders.
Is there anybody facing such problems?
Is there anyone facing such problems as their comments on their friends’ pages landing on their spam boxes? I just heard this today from Chery Schmidt and few others. Since this is the case with me I started checking every day in my blog’s spam folders too! Since I know how much pain a fellow blogger will take to post a comment! If that goes into the useless place all their efforts will go in vain. So I daily check my spam folder in WordPress dashboard and a good number of comments I retrieve from the spam folder and approve and publish. So dear bloggers please do make it a habit to check your spam folder on a daily basis so that you will not miss any valuable comments.
Why my all my blog comments landing on other’s spam folder? Click To Tweet
I am writing this note to inform about my fellow bloggers to make aware about this problem and also to check their spam folders on a regular basis, This is not only related to blog comments but it is very well related to you email spam box too. Some of your valuable emails may land in that nasty box and you will be losing important information/notifications etc. So please do check your spam folders on a daily basis. Of course many may be doing this but for those who are not doing may this note/post be an alert note.
Dear friend, is your web system ok in this aspect?
Or are you facing such problems in your commenting system too?
I would like to hear from you.
And if any techie can help, suggest any remedy for this problem it will be very kind of you and will be much appreciated.

On a later research, I found out that there a good number of such cheating company’s out there to grab our vital information to dupe us. So be careful about your spam emails. At the same time have a constant check in your spam folder to see if any important mail landed there or not. In fact, I lost few good offers from some clients in this way. And I really missed some Roundup invitations too in this way, it went into my spam folder.
Apart from these types of emails, there is a flood of mails will land in your spam folders with the request of love proposal and long term business proposals from gorgeous looking young and middle-aged women.
