28 Jan 2006 Just How Dumb Do the E-Scammers Think We Are?
Got another one of those scam letters by e-mail today. The pitch in this one was that the fellow (“My name is John Nelson from South Africa ;living in Madrid,Spain”) wanted me to pay his Dad’s medical bills.
You see, says the would-be e-scammer, “his heart is not functioning properly and it was due to a fatal accident.”
Fatal accidents will do that.
