There are OFFICIAL scammers, and there are the more freelance kind.
Far be it from me to not put an occasional spotlight on an OFFICIAL scammer, aka our potus.
But I digress.
My record continues apace; I won me another online lotto.
55 million pesos this time. Only about 1.3 million USD.
And from a scammer who sounds like a potato chip.
But ol' Pringle Saul wouldn't recognize what it wuz I dun with his scam email, Ma. Nor would it please him.

None of the other recipients bothered to respond; but ol' Pringle did, and in a style that is curiously familiar:

I immediately assured him that I had:
Worry not, 'Tater Chip: I loosed your emale to as many of your peers and colleagues as I gots. And they be laughin' at you now. No need to thank me.
And he apparently didn't feel any such need ;-)
