Gmail Phishing Email from Hotmail

  1. Good day Kababayan,

    I am Monalyn from Philippines too. Your blog inspires me, you wrote meaningful topics and many readers were glad reading the content of your blog.

    By the way, have you heard about identity theft? It is one of the common problems of the society. I have short content about identity theft and this is a good topic for your readers to be aware while surfing the world wide web. If it is okay, I would like to post a brief content about Identity fraud /theft into your blog, this content is just simple but has a great meaning for all of us.

    I would be happy if you'll do. More power for your blog, and may it continue in getting popular.
    Please response through my email address. Thank you very much.
