No, the Publisher's Clearing House guy didn't show up at my house, even though he keeps saying he's coming. Something even better. And I didn't even have to enter or anything! Awesome!!

Mr.David Brooke
Online Co-ordinator For (UKNLF).

Do these people really think we are going to fall for this crap? Really? That we are going to give our personal information to someone who can't even use spell check? Not to mention that the U.K. uses the Euro as its form of currency, not the pound. A couple of months ago, I got an email from an Irish lawyer saying that Merv Griffin had left me 20 million dollars because I am his heir. WOW! That's news to me.

I guess that means I should march myself down to his very expensive Palm Springs resort and demand my posh suite & room service for life, don't you think? I am, after all, his only living relative and therefore owner of all his worldly goods. I do wonder how in the heck these people found my email address in the first place because I have a couple of email addy's I have lost and would like to have back. The people that send these emails are evil and have way too much time on their hands. Kind of like Martha Stewart...

What is even worse is the hundreds of people every day that get sucked into this scam!

LadyStyx said...

I get on an average 1 a DAY of those and at least one "help me move my money to the US" from a soldier or someone in Africa...

ChicagoLady said...

I get several a day! From as far away as the U.K., Africa and the Benin Republic (wherever that is). I love the ones from a child who has no family cause her parents died, but her dad left her millions and I have to claim to be her relative so she can get at the money.

I was totally going to post about this and all the other wonderful "goodies" I get in my spam folder.

They should get original. Something like."I am a spammer. Please send me some monies. My mother-in-law refuses to leave my house unless I pay for her weekly Botox sessions....."

This stuff is rather funny. But I am always afraid they have attached some Trojan Virus to it, so I am always afraid to open them.

One day I will respond in my snarky smart ass way. I am sure they will enjoy that immensely!

And Jeannie? Sorry! Great minds think alike!

I'm jealous - my "winners" come from Nepal, Hong Kong and China - no UK winners for me.
