Gone Phishing

It’s my duty (and pleasure) as someone whose sporadic writing you read sporadically, to inform the general public of the scary scams on the internet.  That being said, today I received a legitimate email disguised as a scam.  I’ll attach a picture of it, but don’t bother reading the whole thing.  From what I gather, I have the opportunity to get a chunk of Saddam Hussein’s secret $26,000,000 that the US government doesn’t know about.

I’ve got to be honest with you; she sold me.  I was just about ready to send her digital copies of my credit card, social security card, and birth certificate until I reread the subject of the email.  I knew at that point that I was not who she was looking for.  I replied and I hope she’s still interested in doing business, but it seems less likely than I originally hoped.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

My response:

I never stood a chance 😦

Fingers crossed for a reply.  I’ll keep you updated.
