Turning the tables
« on: September 07, 2013, 10:47:28 AM »
I once signed up for online coupons at the suggestion of my local grocery store and within 3 days was getting up to 60 spam messages .

This all happened about the time I moved back to Alabama and was very sick , lonely and bored , so when the scam and con artist began to contact me and offer huge sums of money if I would help a poor widow or former royalty free up some assets I would go on and on about the fact I got a huge settlement from a work accident or won the lottery and wouldn't feel right taking the money because the lord had already blessed me . I would then just write to say hello a couple of times a day and see if they found anyone to help out or send pics of my bulldog Miss Puss Puss and go on and on about that . I had way too much time on my hands but it drove them bat shit crazy and they would eventually block my emails.

I see I'm not the only one that has amused themselves this way when I read this today .

I don't get any of those emails, so what! I'm not good enough for a Nigerian Prince?.

Anyway I'd rather interact with a man who has a Bull Dog called Puss Puss anytime.

Geez, haven't any of you ever heard of 419Eaters? Great stuff here.
Reality is frequently inaccurate.
