Remember that if these scams didn't work at all, then they would go away. It'* simple economics.

Thank you lash lol. I just don't understand why people even bother sending these scams. 95% of people wont fall for them. Oh wait, I just answered my question lol, it'* the 5 % of people that will.

I laughed my a$$ off while reading that though.

And Jim, I don't normally open emails from people I don't know, I accidentally opened it while I was trying to open another email. So neener neener

And Bill.....

Like I said above, it doesn't ned to be a high percentage that fall for it. It only takes a very very small percentage factor to make this type of scam pay off. And enforcement seems to be spotty at best.
