It's all done by software, little time involved . That's why if you ever put your e-mail on the internet you should use spaces between things like Name @ whatever. They have bots that scan forums and such for e-mail addresses, also have software where once in a system, they can send one e-mail to over hundreds if not thousands of people. But yes, I wonder who falls for this stuff.

Really! So a space between like/ joe dummy @ yahoo. com /I never knew that and will do it in the future. I will readily admit I'm a computer dummy.

As far as the scam goes I personally can't read anything that is so poorly written and the queens English massacred like that.

Or type something like "Joe dummy at yahoo dot com" works also. I usually use the spelled out @ and . Most of these programs won't recognize it as a email address.

ok, so they tried calling the recipient of the email.

but later on in that email they require your cell and home phone number...

but wait! that means they must have forgotten your phone number! yes! that's it!

or could be a scam? no, they seem like nice people, they wouldn't try to trick anyone.

There's always someone who is vulnerable to a get rich quick scheme.

it aint me :D

I do believe that smilie at the end of my post was suppose to show I was being a wise arse.;) That was told to me by the moderation team to be the accepted norm for showing when we were joking.

Its all a numbers game.

I mean if Jim Jones can get 1000 people to drink the death flavored Kool aid then these guys can get 1000 suckers to respond.


And it's cheap for them to try, maybe less than 100 buck will get you in-front of 10 million people.... No, Scammers are smart, this is what they do for a living. we are the ones busting our hump everyday for peanuts.

Their are people with misfortunes who would love to take out their sadness and anger on you.
