Thanks a lot, Jade!

Jade, I haven't received the message you are referring to ... but I have received a few unpleasant message from "scammers", asking for financial help and assistance to claim inheritance or offering "business" proposals. Scams are rampant in almost all websites, and our very own World Pulse has already been penetrated by the evils in online technology. If we cannot avoid it, we can always ignore it. Nothing here can harm us if we don't allow it to. World Pulse is one caring and sharing community where we can easily spot the one who does not belong. We are safe because we care and share, though we need to be extra cautious and careful always. All the best...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

Thank you Jade.

I have received such mail in the past and simply ignored it because it looked so unprofessional.
