Breakin' The Rules

A blogging acquaintance and FB friend sent me an email that she believed she had a scammer nibbling at her over a Craigslist ad.
After reading the email she forwarded me, I tended to agree.
I could have just recommended she delete the email, or write back and tell the party to go procreate himself via the art of self-gratification.
Instead, I broke a couple rules of scambaiting...I told her to have the party send his "payment" via courier, to my personal address.
Yeah, I know....but I chase tornadoes, too.
But since tornado season is pretty much over here...if the payment arrives, I'll let you know how "the rest of the story" plays ;-)

Would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?

Was that a wise decision. I remember several murders on Craigs list recently. Better arm yourself!

Probably he/she will never show up.

Skunks, now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! Crankin' it up a notch!

Why do I think you're already armed up?

Veddy interesting.

I look forward to seeing what, if anything, happens.

My vote's on no one will show.
