I have often wondered that myself. I think (don't quote me here) it's because they use catcher accounts just like us. Many of these a-holes send out thousands of e-mails, and the number of failure notices must be staggering.

I've learned two things about mugus: 1) they often have to buy their time in an internet cafe, and 2) the idea of any kind of work is repulsive to them. And that is why I always just hit the "reply" button. Start pissing them off right from the get-go!

They might also do it just to add credibility or some other reason I just can't fathom. These ideas are just theory, but it would explain why some of them get so offended when they find out they've been played.

losst Jedi is right, it's because they send the catcher emails first and get personal with the account they ask you to reply to. This is so they know the people that reply are 'hot'.

The biggest reason they do this is because their spamming accounts have a very short shelf-life. Sooner or later (usually sooner), someone who has gotten spammed with their format will report the address and it will be killed. The reply to address is a catcher, and it often survives much longer.

It's because they have to refer us to their "barrister" or some higher upster in their food chain. The 'worker mugus' just seem to troll, and when they can't figure out what to say next, they pass along the script to a bigger, fatter mugu. It's not always that simple, but sorta works for me.
lol!

As said above, one is their spamming account which is disposable. The second is their scamming account and is usually the same lad. After ascertaining your gullibility, usually after a couple of scripted e-mails they will then pass you on to their 'barrister', usually the same lad again. The lad will often ask you "To keep him informed" of your dealings with the barrister just in case the barrister's account gets shut down.

I never use a given address and always hit the autoreply button. More often than not, I will get a lad on the end and then when his account does get killed in the middle of a transaction, I get to act all suspicious.

I simply can't be bothered to use the address that a lad insists on. It's my bait - not his.

@slightlyoutofit

That is a great quote from your lad about contracting viruses through a keyboard. I don't think he quite understands that computer viruses cannot be passed on to humans Laughing
