We know better - well, most of us do. These types of of emails are phishing for responses. People who respond are too naive to know that responding and giving the sender your financial information will lead to loss and pain - for you, not for Jose in Spain or Miali in the Congo or Bridie in Dublin.
I want to remember in keeping the pounds off I need to treat advertisers of new processed food products (especially desserts), free samples at food markets, food porn channels and gourmet catalogs the same way I treat Joe in Spain. i don't let him put the bite on me and I don't bite. They don't care what I do with the food, how a body responds; they only want me to bite so I'll buy. They want my money. It is my responsibility to recognize that they take my money and that the bite can eventually take my life. I can't bite. I have to steer clear.
When I lighten up my attitude towards others I lighten up my load - in every possible way.
