Marking the start of the scamming season

Pleading e-mails are the latest attempt to dip into our wallets just when we're feeling most generous.

October 22, 2007

The smell of money is in the air.


I am not brave and I never have been brave, which is why I am seeking other sources of revenue.


Doing so, I have begun paying closer attention to e-mails from Africa and Europe offering me big bucks if I would help the senders stash away millions they have either stolen from deposed tribal leaders, inherited from crooked parents or found in abandoned doghouses.

All I have to do is send them the number of my bank account, my date of birth, my Social Security number and various other scraps of identity and they will transact their business and send me a check for a percentage of the take just for being a nice guy.

What a crappy article. Sloppy and badly written. An opportunity missed IMHO.
