Default What a pathetic scam attempt.

Worse than any I have ever seen. This one actually has the nerve to ask you for your SSN, and at least one credit card to put on "file".

Ive gotten 4 or 5 within the past couple weeks. lol Except they have never asked for my SSN or any credit card. I asked in one reply.. "Give me your personal information first and I'll give you mine," and he/she STILL thought I was stupid and replied simply saying "You are expected to provide your full information below."

It amazes me how they have the nerve to ask for your SSN and full credit card info. Someone would seriously have to be crazy and/or financially rock-bottom to give out that info hoping to win millions.
