Exchanges With Morons
Like my latest moron.
This clown -- which may be unfair to professional clowns every where -- sent me the same scam email, but to three of my email addresses. Addressed from the same and different people. I'll probably never know what his angle was meant to be, but it's one of the stupider scam efforts I've seen.
Here it is (and when you've seen one, you've literally seen them all):
Is the payroll job still avaliable? I am pretty intrested i have good background work in that area
The email address it came from is NOT the email address that appeared when I went to reply to it: that address was firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since I got a total of four of these emails over three accounts -- one got two addressed from different people, but with the same reply-to address -- I came up with a variety of responses. Here's a few for example:
- Oh heckydarnpoo....a platypus with fabulous abacus skills was just hired for that job. Sawwwwrrrrry.
- I am pleased to tell you that after carefully reviewing your resume, your skills at sodomizing sheep won our extended amusement. But didn't land you a job.
- Pop quiz: According to the calendar of events, your days are numbered. If you don't see what we just did there, you aren't qualified for the job. If you eventually figure out what we just did there, you're still not qualified for the job...an abacus figured it out immediately. If you figured out what we just did there in a few seconds...QuickenBook is still faster....no job for you. Regardless of what you figured out, you still didn't get the job. We pulled it because of obozodoesn'tcare. Return to your unemployment and widening your ass watching Oprah and eating whatever it is you eat while trying to come up with a better scam.
Now, none of those responses generated anything in return. But one initial response DID generate something of a dialogue with this person of dubious scamming antecedence. Here is THAT exchange:
I'm sorry...we have filled the position with a blonde named Ubula. She can't count but dang does she fill out a sweater. ... We'll be happy to hold your resume for the next open rest room cleaning position we get.
Dude thats how you scam bait?
It was addressed from a Fouad Elyaouti. Naturally, I simply hadda reply:
Sometimes I just troll a shiner past 'em and wait for them to lunge from the outhouse pit to take the bait. Other times...I just throw them an anchovy and watch the seals trample 'em. With scammers, it's whatever woiks, dude.
That drew this in response:
okay? Is that all?
