Isn't it amazing.  The same ole, same ole over and over again.  I guess on occasion it must work or they wouldn't keep doing it.  The darn proliferation of Viagra and worse is really bad!

I cannot believe that anyone actually still falls for this stuff! I guess the poor spelling adds to the mystique?

What I find funny is that when I do get stuff that is legit, I am analyzing it again and again because SCAM is the first thing that comes to mind in today's world!

I just received one by postal mail.  I guess I wasn't responding to their so very generous email offers so they decided to try a diferent approach.  I'm turning it over to the fraud division of the P.O.

Some people have way too much time on their hands. I guess it is good that most scams are easier to spot now days.
