    I can't believe that this kind of garbage would work on anyone. Why do these idiots insist on flooding the Internet with this crap on a continuous basis? What can be done about it?:confused::mad:

    They always make me chuckle.

    There's an internet meme going around called 'internet noob'. I think you guys might like this one.

    Hello,

    It is just spam. Most time there will de fraud in play.
    It is all about the money they can get for your email address.

    Take a look at this thread:

    The only reason we aren't swarmed on AAC is the mods. Thank you.

    Hi Billo!
    Good to point out for a discussion. It really does! since all are not as wise as you are! the world is full of diversity and so all types of thinking levels exist both in the real and virtual world. It would not be such wide spread if it was not successful. I don't say that their victims would have been only the naive ones, since greed is such a emotion which sometimes may influence the wisdom too.

    Sad fact is this kind of spam does work. It if it once in 100 thousand times that is enough to get the scammers to do it again. I think everyone knows PT Barnum's opinion on the subject...
