Thank You verry much for your help!

So I go read my mail and I find this shit in it. The fucked up part is that it's one of my email addys that I've only given to like 10 people. It's a Gmail account as well, so my question, I suppose, is where the fuck do these people get my email from?

The other question is... does this shit work? Would anyone actually send this asshole money?

Cerebus - we talking about the guy in Africa who has some millions he wants you to arrange deposit for in a US bank? For a fee, of course?

I get TONs of those in one email address and a couple in my gmail occasionally (which nobody gets (maybe 3 people know it - I mostly use it to send stuff to myself)

I figure it's scan aliasing that allows this.

I didn't see the spam, since it was deleted, but based on AWArulz description of it, it sounds like the classic 419 scam. Amazingly, many people have fallen for it. Of course, many other people have taken the takers....



I wasn't sure what happened. Then I saw the train stopping up ahead. I thought, ‘Holy crap dude, you just got hit by a train.'

Ever read the Ebola Monkey Man (ebolamonkeyman.com) website? That's a brilliant website dedicated to 419 scams. You might get a kick out of it

I saw it before CRZ deleted it. Basically it was this girl from Estonia or Latvia or one of those former Soviet republics asking to help pay for her schooling.

I wouldn't be surprised if something like that works. There are tons of websites with people asking for donations to help them continue on. Of course, how do we know that the money goes for schooling, or even that the person in the e-mail is real?

I would like to take this time to say that the age of consent in Canada is 14. I'm not sure what the limitation on that is, but I got a source.
