Is This a Scam? - Hello My Dearest, - ScamLetters.info. If you ever get a letter beginning with "Hello, My Dearest", do NOT open it or any attachments to it. I don't care who it comes from, it is a scam. Even if I got this letter from SWMBO, I wouldn't read or open it; because, she only calls me Dearest when she is angry about something I did or didn't do, or she wants money for something. Be alert. Be aware. Be careful out there, my dearest.
