    Default Internet get-rich spammers.

    Don;t you just hate those ppl?

    Anyway, i got this spam email on my yahoo account as usual, and for once i choose to reply to that email.

    The following is attached for fun.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Why are you spamming my email address?

    Your spam/phsing attempt is so bad that it is laughable which is why i choose to reply to you for once only.

    In your cover story, you have a name, a bank account number but hey, no name of the bank or the type of account that the person have.

    You have no title for your mr. suleman. Is he the cleaner in your bank?

    You never tell me if your fictional deceased person have any family at all? or if the bank have attempted to contact them? And if they have, why the heck are you emailing me? -if they have not= your bank sucks ***, and i wouldn't hesitate for you to steal the money yourself.

    Also, for the love of allah or jesus, or other deities that you prayed in, why do you have a russian looking link at the bottom of the email?

    With all thanks but no thanks,

    STOP SPAMMING ME.

    In 10 seconds, this message will be deleted under spam link forever and oh, i'll post this on some intraweb so that ppl can laugh at you too.

    Yes they are pathetic, but there are still people who fall for them, like phone scams.

    yeah, i share the same sentiments. those falling for these scams deserve what they get for being greedy, unethical, and mostly STUPID! in addition to losing money, someone needs to slap them upside the head to knock some sense into them.

    Han, that's funny! I like your reply to that malicious email. With a domain of @voila.fr, it should be a france email account (fr).

    Guess who else speaks french (besides the French), who are reportedly having links to such scams?
    What can I say? I'm still standing! No weapon against me shall prosper! I am more than a conqueror!!!

    I don't care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can't control it, why look?

    Spammers/scammers usually make their living from ppl who fall for them.

    As long as there are stupid ppl out there, there will always be spammers and scammers.
