How stupid do e-mail scammers think we are?
 
Sometimes, it's like "WOW, did they actually take the time out of their day to send me this?". :rolleyes:



I hate nothing more, than spam e-mails that make their way into my inbox. :cussin:

The (hopefully) small percentage of people who fall for email scams make it worth it for the people who send them.

Nope, but I was intrigued to open it... Then I saw how poorly the e-mail was presented, plus it said wallyssealing@hotmail.com which was another give point.

Nope, but sometimes it's funny to immerse yourself into a string of conversations with the scammers who send you the money e-mails. A few months back, I replied to a Russian woman named Yuliya, after doing a Google search. It's funny how deep into a story people will go, even fly to your country and expect to move in. lol

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.
