No...seriously...who Is This Stupid?

Tue Nov 07, 2006 1:32 pm

In the last two days I've gotten three of those 419 scam emails.

Are there really still people falling for this? I mean, Jeez, the things even have a Wikipedia entry.

I suppose they've branched out and diversified. One of the emails was from Burkina Faso* instead of Nigeria...



*i.e. probably Burkina Faso, FL

You must have missed my stupid people thread, eh?

But to answer your question, yes, there are people that stupid out there. The percentages are low, but when you send out millions of e-mails a night, a few will fall for them.

Please. Read my thread I posted a few hours ago. The person I'm dealing with is the stupidest person of all.
If stupid was the catholic church, this asshole would be the pope.
anyway, I'll give the thread a bump.
