Govt okays further revision in pay for PSU officers
New Delhi, Mar 30 (PTI) About four lakh officers of central public sector enterprises will benefit from a government decision today giving them a further increase in salary and allowances, over and above the hikes announced last year.The decision to improve the salary structure of officers at board level and below, along with supervisory staff, was taken at the Cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.The improved pay packages will also include increase in house rent allowance and retirement benefits.The decisions are based on the recommendations of the committee of ministers headed by Home Minister P Chidambaram, which went into the revised salary and allowances notified earlier in November last year by the government.PSU officers, particularly in the oil sector, forced the government to revisit their revised pay scales when they went on strike in January this year.Briefing reporters after the Cabinet meeting, Chidambaram said the revision in the pay structure would vary from company to company.

Oil PSU gets a hike of 9% only  

New Delhi: More than 3 lakh employees of Central public sector enterprises will have something to cheer about before the elections as the UPA Government plans to consider on Monday a further increase in their emoluments — a 9.4% hike in their basic salary. The Election Commission, sources said, has given its go-ahead today.

The Cabinet is expected to take up the recommendations of a Group of Ministers to merge Dearness Allowance (DA) with the basic salary with DA being calculated at 78.2% of basic salary instead of 68.8% as per a Department of Public Enterprises notification on November 26, 2008.
The new pay will continue to be effective from January 1, 2007.

“We informed the EC that there was a financial implication. We have been advised that we could take it up for Cabinet approval but not publicise the approval,” a DPE source said.

The Cabinet will also be asked to approve the GOM’s recommendation allowing the issue of perks such as House Rent Allowance from November 26, 2008, instead of the day each ministry issues the new pay scales through a Presidential directive.

The other concession is that 30 per cent of basic pay and Dearness Allowance will be allowed towards superannuation benefits instead of just 30 percent of basic pay as announced in the DPE notification.

The new scales will be applicable to 1.2 lakh non-unionized supervisory staff and 2.58 lakh board-level officers in 216 operational CPSEs.

Oil Price prediction for rest of 2009  

Oil prices to average $50 for rest of 2009

Political and Business Daily, New Delhi, March 26, 2009Dubai:


Oil prices are expected to average $50 per barrel for the remainder of the year based on Dated Brent as the benchmark, a Centre for Global Energy Studies (CGES) report has said.The reference case forecast takes into account the dire state of the world economy and expects global demand to fall by 900,000 barrels per day (bpd) in 2009. It also does not foresee any further compliance by OPEC countries with the quota reductions announced last December.Dated Brent was expected to have average $45 per, barrel in the first quarter, rising to $50.4 per barrel in the second and $51.8 -per barrel in the, third, then up to $53.4 per barrel in the last three months of this year."With demand set to fall dramatically, it is what happens to supply that will determine the price of oil," CGES said in its monthly, oil report.The report assumed that OPEC will keep its output relatively constant through the first quarter before leaking oil as prices marginally rise.But if OPEC fully complied with "the quotas, the report suggested that oil prices would rise much more rapidly throughout 2009, reaching an average of $74.3 per barrel in the final quarter, leaving an average of $57.4 per barrel for the year.

Know your culture: ugadi and gudi padwa  




Ugadi (Kannada: ಯುಗಾದಿ, Telugu: ఉగాది from yuga+aadi, yuga is era, aadi means start. the start of an era) is the new year's day for the people of the Deccan region of India. While the people of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh use the term Ugadi for this festival, the people of Maharashtra term the same festival, observed on the same day, Gudi Padwa. Sindhis, people from Sindh, celebrate the same day as their New Year day Cheti Chand.



Ugadi is celebrated on a different day every year because the Hindu calendar is a lunisolar calendar. The Saka calendar begins with the month of Chaitra (March/April) and Ugadi marks the first day of the new year.






Gudhi Padwa (Devnagari: गुढीपाडवा) is celebrated on the first day of the Chaitra month, and is celebrated as New Year's Day by Maharashtrians and Hindu Konkanis ( called as Samvatsar ( Sausar ) Padvo or Yugadi by Konkanis ). It is the same day on which great king Shalivahana defeated Sakas in battle.
This is also first day of Marathi Calendar. This festival is supposed to mark the beginning of Vasant (spring). According to the Gregorian calendar this would fall sometime at the end of March and the beginning of April. According to the Brahma Purana, this is the day on which Brahma created the world after the deluge and time began to tick from this day forth. This is one of the 3 and a half days in the Indian Lunar calendar called "Sade-Teen Muhurt", whose every moment is considered auspicious in general to start a new activity.
While the people of Maharashtra use the term Gudhi Padwa for this festival and the Konkanis use Sanvsar Padvo (sanvsar derived from samvatsar meaning year) the people of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka term the same festival, observed on the same day, Ugadi. The Sindhi festival of Cheti Chand is celebrated same day

Road trials of hydrogen blended CNG vehicles  

SIAM to start road trials of hydrogen blended CNG vehicles in 2 months


The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers Association will start pilot tests of hydrogen blended compressed natural gas fuel vehicles in one to two months.Tata Motors, Mahindra, Ashok Leyland, Bajaj and Eicher commercial vehicles will be tested on the Delhi-Faridabad road across a stretch of 50,000 km. IndianOil has set up a hydrogen station to conduct the trial tests."Our pilot project with IndianOil to test hydrogen blend CNG vehicles is on track.


We expect the trials to begin in a month or two," Mr. Dilip Chenoy, Director-General, SIAM, said on the sidelines of a natural gas vehicles event here.Trying combinationsSIAM has completed the initial trials on Ashok Leyland, Mahindra and Bajaj commercial vehicles, to run on a hydrogen blended CNG fuel. The industry association indicated that in one or two months, it was likely to finish the initial trials of varying blends of hydrogen and CNG even for Tata Motor's light commercial vehicle and Eicher.In the first phase, SIAM has tested the feasibility of hydrogen with CNG from 5 per cent to 30 per cent. Based on the pilot trials that will begin shortly, auto companies will recommend the uniform standard that can be implemented for blending hydrogen."After the pilot tests on road, we will be able to know the level of hydrogen that can be blended on all vehicles to give optimum performance," said a senior official at SIAM who heads technical policy issues.There are around 7 lakh vehicles that run on CNG and 400 retail outlets to cater to them. The Chairman of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board, Mr. L. Mansingh, said there will be 84 geographical areas with CNG outlets by 2011."Of this, the number of cities where the availability of CNG would be increased will touch 64. In the remaining 22 cities it will be operational. By 2013, the coverage of cities under CNG will go up to 125 cities and by 2018, we expect the number to double."

dot tel domain - the biggest innovation since dot com  

It is an appropriate neutral platform to provide an individual/business with the ability to store and publicize existing ways that people could get in touch with them.

It is a platform that is completely under the control of the .tel owner who then has the ability to publish his or her contact information easily and simply and with a frequency of their own choice, not at the whim of a service provider. This information can then be globally accessible by anyone at any time over any device in real-time.


By registering your .tel you're effectively staking your claim to your place in the cloud that is completely under your control, for as long as you want it to be. And the independence stretches to the communications channels that you want to publish under your .tel domain.

In India, domain name registrars like Net4India and Directi are inviting applications for registering the .tel domain, which is available for about Rs 3,000 for three years with a processing fee of Rs. 13,500. The processing fee goes to World Intellectual Property Organization. The individual registrations will open on March 24, which will be available for Rs. 999 for a year

Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) , Delhi Fashion Week (DFW)  

Things to know about fashion weeks in India now.

Organised by the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), the 12th edition of WIFW will be held during March 18-23 at Eros Intercontinental hotel.

Fashion Foundation of India's second DFW showing is scheduled for March 19-24 at the swish Emporio mall.

Unlike last year, when WIFW attracted a whopping 160 buyers, the presence of both domestic and international buyers this time around is predicted to be lower.


Compared to last year's spring-summer edition when it had 10 commercial partners and 79 designers, WIFW has managed to attract three new partners and established designers like Anamika Khanna, Raghavendra Rathore, Rocky S, Manish Malhotra, Priyadarshani Rao, Puja Nayyar and many more.

Both the events will also have additional Main Show Areas (MSAs).

While WIFW will have a third MSA at the pool side, DFW will have a second one inside the Emporio mall for select audiences.

"The third ramp is named the 'Talent Pool' where young designers will each showcase 10 garments. We've created a special ramp over the pool for this.

According to DFW head Sumeet Nair, the second MSA will be for 'Salon Shows'.
"Some designers expressed the desire to showcase an edited version comprising 20-30 garments of their pret (ready-to-wear) collection to only buyers and editors and therefore we decided to do salon shows. These shows will be in keeping with the international format of the event," Nair explained.

A normal fashion show can include up to 80 garments.

As in the past, the Bollywood quotient is expected to be high at both the events, with WIFW keeping its cards close to its chest, saying only that the celebrity factor could be evident at the shows of Mumbai-based designers Rocky S, Manish Malhotra and Shane and Falguni Peacock.
Though Sethi declined to reveal names, he said: "Fashion and glamour go hand in hand; so just wait and watch".

AS for DFW, there is talk of Bollywood beauties Deepika Padukone, Shilpa Shetty and Katrina Kaif sashaying down the ramp for designer Tarun Tahiliani.
This year, flower retail chain Ferns'N'Petals has been roped in as the decor and infrastructure partner for DFW.
As for WIFW, other than the title sponsor Wills Lifestyle, the other brands associated with the event this time around as associated sponsors are Fiama Di Wills, Hewlett Packard, Chivas, Audi, Elle, NDTV Good Times, Big FM, Intercontinental Eros, Yahoo, Kingfisher, Power Plate and FedEx.

Hyper Speech Transfer Protocol (HSTP)-talk to the web and create voice sites using mobile phones  

the Indian research arms of the US-based IT giant IBM has developed a technology that will allow users to talk to the web and create voice sites using mobile phones.


"People will talk to the web and the web will respond. The research technology is analogous to the internet. Unlike personal computers it will work on mobile phones where people can simply create their voice sites," IBM India Research Laboratory Associate Director Manish Gupta told PTI.

For this technology, IBM has developed a new protocol -- Hyper Speech Transfer Protocol (HSTP) -- which is similar to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

" India now has over 360 million cell phone subscribers. Last month we added 15 million," he said pointing out that the research technology targets ordinary mobile phone users, all of whom may not be literate.

The spoken web is a network of voice sites or interconnected voice and the response the company got in some pilot projects in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat and the kind of innovations that people came up with were just mind-boggling, Mr. Gupta said.

News on Energy Issues

Cast: Kay Kay, Raja Singh Chaudhary, Abhimanyu Singh, Aditya Srivastava, Piyush Mishra, Deepak Dobriyal, Ayesha Mohan, Jesse Randhawa, Mahie Gill
Director: Anurag Kashyap
 
The leitmotif that runs through Anurag Kashyap's latest film is red—the colour of revolution, and passion; of love and bloody betrayal. 'Gulal' tells the story of an India struggling to come to terms with its contemporary identity and complicated histories. And Kashyap nearly pulls it off.
 
It comes from a director who main-lines anger and this is his angriest film. It's also his most ambitious film, and the combination is potent enough to give us a film which spills over with compelling characters (some of whom you've never met in Hindi cinema), superb set-pieces, stirring lyrics, and terrific acting. But somewhere along the way, the director gets into montage mode, juggling with too many issues and too many people

Little Zizou movie review  



Little Zizou is a f film in Hindi, Gujarati, and English, written and directed by Sooni Taraporevala .
Little Zizou is a fast-paced, exuberant, yet poignant comedy about how two battling Mumbai families finally come to terms. Xerxes, 'Little Zizou' as he's known, is an eleven year old soccer-mad Parsi boy whose fervent wish is that his idol, the world famous Algerian-origin French soccer/football player Zinedine Zidane visit Mumbai. His older brother Ataxerxes, or Art, is a talented artist whose wild fantasies come to life in surprising ways. Their father Khodaiji is a self-proclaimed protector-of-the-faith who thrives on the attentions (and donations) of hopeful believers.
Art burns with unrequited love for the daughter of Khodaiji's arch rival, Pressvala, a free thinking newspaper publisher. And to the extreme displeasure of their other daughter, Xerxes adores the maternal Mrs Pressvala. But the real fireworks begin when Pressvala writes a scathing critique of Khodaiji and public reaction is widespread. As the two households fight, life becomes complicated.
Sooni Taraporevala is an award-winning screenwriter (The Namesake (film), Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala), professional photographer (PARSIS: the Zoroastrians of India - a Photographic Journey), and debuting director..

Raj TV to launch music, news channels for Kannada  

The Rs.586-million (Rs.58.6-crore) Raj Television Network - the second largest Tamil satellite television company - is foraying into the Kannada language market with a music and a news channel.

'The Kannada music channel will go on air next month while the Kannada news channel will be launched in April,' Raj TV programme director M. Ravindran told IANS.

The Raj Musix Kannada will be the company's second music channel after its Tamil music channel launched last year. The company had announced plans to launch similar channels in Malayalam and Telugu.

It will also be the third Kannada music channel after SS Music and U2 from the Sun TV Network.
According to Ravindran, the Kannada music and news channels are expected to break even in three years.

Last year, the company had announced a Rs.40-million (Rs.4-crore) investment for the four music channels, and hopes to earn Rs.5 million per month as advertisement revenues.
Speaking about plans surrounding the Telugu news channel, Ravindran said: 'The Telugu news channel market is currently cluttered with nearly 10 channels. Our plans will be finalised some time next fiscal.'

He also said Raj TV's Telugu entertainment channel, Vissa, will be re-launched with new programmes and game shows.

Though the Tamil satellite channel market is buzzing with the launch of two comedy channels (Adithya from Sun TV and Siripolli from Kalaignar TV), Ravindran ruled out any such plans from Raj TV.

'The Sun TV and the Kalaignar TV group have the advantage of owning a cable distribution network. A competing channel will be slotted in the non-prime band,' he explained.
In fact, this is a problem being faced by all the four channels under the Raj TV banner.
Raj TV is expected to close the current financial year with near flat topline growth while its bottomline might go down a bit as compared to the previous year owing to the increased costs.

Lenovo launch vernacular computing initiative 'Matrubhasha'  

Lenovo India today announced the launch of ''Matrubhasha', a vernacular computing initiative in 12 Indian languages that empowers school children to gain computer proficiency through their mother tongue without depending on English.

The company would donate 150 H series desktops, pre-installed with Kannada computing software developed by LooKeys to government schools libraries in and around the city which were run by Akshara Foundation.

Lenovo India Vice President Ramaprasad Lakshminarayanan said the project was a grassroot level initiative to help children gain computer literacy without depending on English as a medium. ''We hope this advantage exposes the children to opportunities that would have otherwise been restricted to English-aware children only,'' he said.


He said the LooKeys-enabled Lenovo PCs offer computing programmes in 12 Indian languages-- Hindi, English, Bengali, Urdu, Kannada, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi, Telugu, Malayalam, Konkani and Punjabi.

The children could also use applications like chat, word processing, PowerPoint, e-mails and browse the Web by using the language of their choice as the medium.

no re-charge for YSR promotion  

An SMS for `promotion of YSR Foundation’ is doing rounds on mobile phones in the city.

The SMS, which claims to be seeking promotion of the website, www.YSRfoundation.com, wants the recipient of the message to forward it to 16 friends with the promise that he or she would get a recharge of Rs 221.55. At the end of the message, there is an affirmation that it has worked with `me’ (the one who forwards the message) and ``why don’t you do that?’’ Heightening the credibility levels, the SMS claims that the offer is from YS Jagan.

But those who trusted the contents of the message and forwarded it to 16 friends ended up with depletion of money in their accounts for the SMSes sent and in spite of waiting for hours and days, there was no re-charge of their accoutns as promised.

Imli Nichet, a student from Nagaland, who has nothing to do with the ongoing election campaign, has forwarded the message religiously only to find that he was befooled. ``I got it from lot of friends and they too don’t know the origin of the string of messages,’’ he said.

When many of them got in touch with their respective network’s customer care, they simply sported their ignorance about the message and even added that they were not responsible for whatever loss incurred by the customer. And the best, or worst, part is yet to come. Finally when one tries to log into the website www.YSRfoundation.com, they would only find that the portal does not exist.

Earth Hour 2009 -turn off lights for one hour to save our earth  

Things you wanted to know about earth hour.



Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. It was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007 and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.


Earth Hour will next take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time.



Currently, 80 countries and 750 cities are 'committed to Earth Hour 2009', a huge increase from people participating in 35 countries for Earth Hour 2008. 1 billion 'votes' is the stated aim for Earth Hour 2009.



Earth Hour 2008 was a major success, celebrated on all seven continents. Iconic landmarks all around the world turned off their non-essential lighting for Earth Hour which included the Empire State Building (New York City), Sears Tower (Chicago), Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco), Bank of America Plaza (Atlanta), Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia), Wat Arun Buddhist Temple (Bangkok, Thailand), the Colosseum (Rome, Italy), Royal Castle (Stockholm, Sweden), London's City Hall (England), Space Needle (Seattle), and the CN Tower (Toronto, Canada).



Google's homepage went "dark" on the day Earth Hour took place.



According to a Zogby International online survey 36 million people participated in Earth Hour 2008, with an estimated 50 million doing the same around the world.



The survey also showed there was a 4 percentage point increase in awareness of environmental issues such as climate change, directly after the event.

Team Bangalore Seven new faces for Royal Challengers in IPL 2009  

Former India bowler Tinu Yohannan and Uttar Pradesh pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar are all set for their Indian Premier League (IPL) with Team Bangalore .

Besides the Kerala pacer and the UP lad, the new faces likely to make it to Vijay Mallya's team are Karnataka teenager Manish Pandey and Goa all-rounder Saurabh Bandekar.

The quartet will join Gaurav Dhiman, who moved from Team Mumbai along with Robin Uthappa (the latter was a swap for pacer Zaheer Khan).

Team Bangalore has also signed Team Rajasthan pacer Pankaj Singh, taking the total number of new signings for the season to seven. With the team management entitled to honour their contractual obligations, a point that coach Ray Jennings stressed upon the other day, most of the players from the Karnataka pool who represented the side last time around are set for a second appearance in the T20 league.


Kevin Pietersen is likely to captain Bangalore Royal Challengers for the first three weeks of this IPL season for which he is available. Pietersen will then hand over the leadership to Rahul Dravid or Mark Boucher, a team source said

Falling prey to fraudsters online is common these days. This message fro is to inform and educate you on precautions you must take to ensure that you are not a victim of these fraudsters. .

Please carefully read through and adopt these safe banking practices.

Be careful when responding to emails:

You may get messages that seem like they are coming from your Bank seeking confidential information. This activity is commonly known as ‘phishing’. Through such messages, you may be directed to websites appearing to be genuine, and asked to key-in your confidential information. Beware of such messages.
Please always bear in mind that:

Generally your Bank will never ask for any confidential information such as password, customer ID and so on over an email.
· A phishing email will normally have a tone of urgency – like “Your account will be temporarily suspended” and therefore please “Login to keep your account active.”
Please remember the bank will NEVER send such emails to its customers.
· If you are doubtful about the credibility of the email, please DO NOT click on any link provided in the email. This may trigger malicious codes being installed on your PC.
· Before you share any information on a website in response to an email, always assure that the URL shown in the email matches the URL of the bank website. If it does not, you have valid reason to suspect there’s something fishy.
· Check for the security pad lock icon at the bottom right side of the webpage, when you are connected to the NetBanking site.

Ensure your Personal Computer is protected:

Fraudsters send genuine-looking emails that contain viruses and Trojans (A Trojan refers to a program that appears to be safe, but hidden inside, is usually something harmful, probably a virus). These viruses / Trojans, install a malicious code on your PC without your knowledge. They extract your confidential information that fraudsters use to access your bank account.

Here are a few important action points that you should bear in mind:

· Keep your PC updated with the latest anti-virus / anti-spyware software
· Install a personal firewall on your PC to protect your account
· Keep your PC updated with the latest security patches and, most importantly,
· Do not click on links or open attachments in unknown or unsolicited (spam) emails


DO NOT transfer funds to OR share your account details with, unknown / non-validated sources:

Many phishing fraudsters are located overseas. They need a Money Mule to route the money into their country of origin. A Money Mule is someone who receives the illegal funds into his account, withdraws it and sends it to the fraudster after keeping his commission. This may be easy money, but is illegal. Such requests could come to you through emails, advertisements on genuine recruitment web sites, instant messaging / SMS, and advertisements in newspapers and even on social networking websites.

Follow these Dos and Don’ts:

· Do not be conned by emails offering you a chance to make ‘easy money’’, especially if it is coming from overseas
· Check out the company making you a job offer if any fund transfer to them is involved. Check their contact details to find out if they are genuine
· NEVER share your bank details
· Beware of ads / notices seeking ‘UK Representatives’ or ‘Agents’ to act on their behalf for a period of time
· Should you get any suspicious email, IMMEDIATELY forward it to bank.
CAUTION: Remember, if you agree to participate in any such money transfer schemes for a commission, you are performing an ACT that is ILLEGAL.

Be aware, practice safe computing rules and protect your money.

Gandhi Memorabilia are back to India  


After much confusion and considerable last-minute drama, five of Mahatma Gandhi's personal items, including his iconic wire-rim eye-glasses, were auctioned off tonight in New York for $1.8 million (Rs 9.3 crore).


The buyer was liquor baron and Kingfisher Airlines chairman Mr Vijay Mallya. The auction went off despite the owner of the memorabilia, Mr James Otis, saying he had decided not to sell the items in the light of the controversy it had generated. “I never intended to create the controversy that this has created. I have decided not to sell Gandhi's items and I will request Antiquorum to call off the auction,” Mr Otis had told a Press conference tonight in New York, less than an hour before the items were due to go on the block.


The personal items auctioned were Gandhi's metal-rimmed glasses, pocket watch, a pair of sandals and a plate and bowl. The collection had a reserve price of between $20,000 and $30,000. The prized memorabilia is expected to return to the country soon as the auctioneers, Antiquorum Auctioneers, hand over the articles to Mr Mallya within two weeks. Earlier today, the Indian government had rejected the conditions set by Mr James Otis to call off the sale, including that India shift priorities from military spending to healthcare, especially for the poor, but vowed to do “whatever it takes” to reclaim the memorabilia.


The minister of state for external affairs Mr Anand Sharma said the conditions infringed on the country's sovereignty. “The government of India, representing the sovereign people of this republic, cannot enter into agreements where it involves specific areas of allocation of resources,” Mr Sharma said.


Tourism minister Ms Ambika Soni said “I have the Prime Minister's instructions that we would not like to have these items be auctioned from one party to another, the bottom-line is to procure the memorabilia.” “We will offer whatever it takes to make sure these things come back to Gandhi's motherland,” said Ms Soni, adding, “We will enter the auction if required as a last resort” to bring back the items.


On Tuesday the New Delhi High Court issued an injunction against the auction or sale of Gandhi’s belongings in question.


Mr Otis had been demanding that India raise its spending on the poor from 1 percent of its GDP to 5 percent. He said his proposed deal to stop the action would have required India to substantially increase the proportion of the government budget spent on health care for the poor during the next decade.


Also, India would promote events in 78 countries "to promote Gandhian non-violent resistance" and "encourage the study of Gandhian nonviolence." India had sought the help of the US State Department to thwart the sale.

How to identify a spam mail?  

There are very simple ways to identify a spam mail.

The first advice is do not, do not reply to a spam mail .

The spammers keep many footprints and give aways to identify them.

Here is a mail I got in my inbox today..

Read below the mail. And then my analysis of the mail.

Start of the spam mail
---------------------


Good Day,
Sunday, 1 March, 2009 8:41 AM
From:
"usman mallam" mallamusman@atlas.cz
To:
undisclosed-recipients

Good Day,We wish to inform you that we received notification last week from the Security and Deposit Companies Association regarding the deposit made by your deceased relative since the past Four years ago before his death.We have waited for a claim application on this deposit all these while but all to no avail, then I decided to contact you and inform you of this development. Our Country constitution stipulates that any deposit without claims for Five years will be considered abandoned and moved to the Reserve as unclaimed under the Security Deposit Law.I am letting you know this because I was very close with your deceased relative who made this deposit and I am aware that it's value according to our record is US$6.2 Million Dollars. It's content is classified as private family belongings. This is a futune I know you can not allow to be confiscated.I will try to find out more if you permit me and hope for a good reward for this information and making sure you get your inheritance deposit instead of allowing it go to the Reserve where I will not benefit from. Be also informed that you have full right for the claim as a relative under our country constitution.Keep my contact with you private as I will face serious penalty under our company rules and regulation.Meanwhile, get back to me urgently on this my private email address: (mallamusman2009@yahoo.com) before it is too late to apply for the claim.I will give you my telephone number when I hear from you.Waiting for your reply through this e-mail: mallamusman2009@yahoo.comThank you,Mr.Mallam UsmanPrinciple Officer.
---------------
End of spam mails.

My observations.
1. The mail is sent from an id mallamusman@atlas.cz which is Checoslovakia based site but the name sugegsts that he is not from that country. Usman is a muslim name.

2. The mail starts with a good day to me but it is sent to multiple recipients. He even does not know my name but tells me that my relative has left money for me.

3. The spammer wants that I reply to not the mail id he has sent the mailfrom but to a different mail id , in this case mallamusman2009@yahoo.com. This is suspicious because he is using the CZ mail id for sending spam mails to thousands and thousands of people and the working mail id is yahoo id which he will use for getting money from me and then close it and vanish.

Now the question is how this people assume that people will fall in their trap. The point is these spammers send spam mails to thousand and if 1% people response and 0.01% people fall prey to their methods they will earn money .
SO my suggestion is never ever reply to spammers. Identify the sender before you reply, if you have to.
