Re: How stupid do e-mail scammers think we are?
I call bullshit.
First of all, no one would be stupid enough to even get in contact with them if they knew they were a spammer. The sensible person would just ignore it.
Please don't try to sound cool like you were "playing" the scammers, just admit you didn't realise till you started talking to them, or admit it didn't happen at all.
I can't see any reason why any normal person would willingly get in a conversation with one of them, and even give them a sniff of interest.
It's a bit like people who get kicks out of talking to telemarketers for half an hour with absolutely no intention of buying anything, just to waste their time. Some people just need to get out more.
