You don't want to be offensive, yet you call me foolish, naive,
retarted, etc.? Maybe I am, however, the scam that got me has NOT been
around for 15 years. The one you are referring to is the 419 Fee
Advance Scam. The one I am referring to is the Counterfiet Check scam.
I was sent a cashier's check for an item that I was selling on the
internet. My bank told me it was good. It wasn't. And if you think
that the bank is responsible, they're not. I'm lucky that I didn't go
to jail, like so many others.
I'm glad that you have found amusment in the pain of others. You'll be
tickled to know that the US Secret Service informed me that they get
an average of 50 reports a day regarding the Counterfeit Check scam.
That is only the people that care enough to report it so that others
can avoid being scammed.
Of course, you have nothing to worry about, being so smart and all.
