Scam alert from a Shell Oil Co retiree

Tuesday March 25, 2008

I am a retiree from Shell Oil Co. who retired in 2001.  I have just received the following email from another former Shell hand who retired in 1992.  He has received the following message via email.

I am sure that it is a scam but I cannot get anyone at SOC Houston’s “retiree hotline” to return my call.
 
If you think that it is worth it you might want to post it on your website as a warning to other Shell people who might be contacted in a similar manner.  I know most, if not all, of them would just delete it but there might be the one or two who could be tempted.
