or me a bunch of holiday treats... lol it is my bday soon and I do expect at like 1,000,000 american dollars from each one of you. Personally if I were you I'd take most of my money and save it and maybe buy some of those guilty pleasures like a big Tv, or a nice Amp that ive always wanted (or a few ) maybe if you want a new house or something you could do that, or renovate! but in the end I'd save most of it. w/e you end up doing with your money I'm sure you will like where the money went to hah

Re: I Won!!! I Won!!!

I'm still waiting for a lady in South Africa to send me $89,000,000 from her late husband's (a diamond miner) secret Swiss Banc account.

I gave her my bank account info last week so she could transfer the funds. The only notices I've received from my bank so far are NSF postcards.

Do these people honestly believe anyone would be so stupid as to fall for their schlock?

Re: I Won!!! I Won!!!

I also received a phishing email from the UK looking to hire "payment agents" (drug money launderers) in the US.

That one was forwarded to a contact of mine at the J. Edgar Hoover Building in DC.

Re: I Won!!! I Won!!!

I usually respond to these to string along the scammers, but since they want you to call I'd just ignore it. I used to tell the African scammers I woul dbe happy to help if they could introduce me to their Olympic committees, as I had been trying to get their country to start a synchronized swimming team for the next Olympics.

Indeed, and it's made even more obvious by the awful punctuation. There's supposed to be a space after a period or comma and "therefore" is one word, not two. Idiots.

I always mess with telemarketers and email spammers. With email spam, I usually reply to their message with pictures of goatse or tubgirl.
