This morning I got this email:
(don't click on any links...I deactivated them, but just in case....YOU'VE BEEN WARNED)

I tried contacting you yesterday about the donation fund setup worth about $2M proposed by Mrs E. Keith. I am her Personal Assistant and I hope that you contact her immediately at her private email address below for more information:

Really? Wow I don't even remember seeing that first email! Silly me! Let me just click on all links provided in your email that doesn't provide any REAL contact information.
How STUPID do you think I or anyone else that reads that email is? I have to admit that this time its not some long lost cousin, or African dignitary that wants to transfer his wealth into my bank account...all I have to do is provide the routing number to my account! But still....
Here is my face reacting to this email:
By the end of the email, I wanted to punch this "Dawn Scott" right in the Space bar.
Do you ever wonder who these people are? Sometimes I get the visual of Angelina Jolie from the 95 Hackers movie
All cool with her red and short hair and piercings...
Then I start thinking it more of this type:
Still got the red shirt and short hair, but this is the kid that hacked into Justin Beiber's email and sent out his number after Beiber tweeted the kid's phone number. Smart kid, too much time on his hands.
But usually and I think really it's this:
Ahhhh the Nigerians.... Gotta love their persistence!
Oh Dawn Scott, did inspire me to write...
so maybe I should be thanking you for the spam... maybe...
I'M DRINKING TEA THIS MORNING! IT was too much effort to brew so I thought boiling water would be less involved since apparently all my energy was used to write this post :)
