Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

I have won another Yahoo Microsoft lottery.

Unfortunately, "there has been a mix up in the numbers".

You would have thought that a company as professional as Microsoft would not have mixed the numbers up, wouldn't you?

Aside from the usual blindingly obvious clues in this email to it being a scam, the scammer has managed to place Lincolnshire in London.
