It's a sobering fact that these scammers only have to catch one idiot and they're three hundred bucks up - and look how many idiots voted for Trump!

But very often it isn't idiots, it's just elderly folk who are perhaps a bit confused and off guard. "Seem to remember my daughter was posting me something from abroad - must be that'

Problem when you start losing your marbles is that you don't always realise it.

Just a pity there isn't some sort of app that you can use to reply with and blow the scumbag's screen up in his face - it's bound to be a him.

I thought they were supposed to be improving their spelling and grammar! That's just garbage.

Some of the scams from "banks" etc. are getting quite believable and you really have to be on your guard especially if you're a customer of the real bank etc. I had one from "Virgin Media" and it had all the proper logos and was well written but I knew I'd made a recent payment despite what they were saying. Check on their web-site confirmed it was a scam.
