Scam TIme! (an ongoing series)

The cool autumn mist
caresses me as I sit
shut the door dammit!

Scam Time!

So I have a couple of scams going on right now, but the one I want to tell you about is the lottery winning. You know how you get those UK lottery emails to inform you that you won a lottery you never entered? I responded, and the amazing thing is they are writing me back! As always, the scammers will be in black, I will be in red.

I didn't even realize I had entered this drawing! I graciously accept on behalf of Smeagol Sweets, the fudge and assorted confectionary packing plant at which I am a supervisor. How is Nataional different from national?

I will give you a little information to whet your appetite, but I do not want to get scammed. Please promise me this is not a scam and I will furnish you with the rest of the information you seek. How did I get on the list? Was it from me signing up for latinabuttbangers.com? I signed up for that site for, uh, research purposes a few months ago, let me know so I can send the webmaster a thank you note for getting me so much money. Yay! How do you "sensitize the pubic"? I usually tweak my nipples until I cry out from pleasure, never tried sensitizing my pubes, though it sounds intriguing, please explain. Anyway, please email me back with any questions you may have after looking over my details.

Thanks!

Philip McKraken, OBGYN, D.D.S., PhD.

More on this one tomorrow.

How is 29,031,643 a fucking exclusive selection?

Hahah did some looking, just for the hell of it!

There is no British Gaming Board, but there is "The Gaming Board for Great Britain" which actually goes by the simple "Gambling Commission". And as far as the IAGR goes, they have a disclaimer on their website's front page about these scams, check this out: International Association of Gaming Regulators.

It would be awesome to get a picture some day like the other scam players get. But I'd want to get them to hold up something for my website, instead going the usual nasty saying route...
