Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Wednesday, June 07, 2006

Another fake lottery "win" for me. This one, as so many do, claims that there has been a "mix up".

I wonder why, by claiming incompetence, the scammers think that this will make them seem any more credible in the eyes of their potential victims?
