These scammers get everywhere

Follow-up to Oxfam East Africa Food Crisis Appeal from Luke's blog

I checked my e-mail this afternoon and discovered that someone had actually left a 419 scam in the comment section of a blog entry I wrote in April plugging an Oxfam appeal. I’m amazed someone actually took the time to bother. Still, what they don’t know is that I know the ISP number they were posting from.

  2. ScamTypes

    Haha – like the anti-spam question!

    Most of these scammers are stupis, hence the comment received. They rely on their victims being even dumber in order to rip them off. Unfortunately, some victims are just greedy enough to take the bait.

  3. I wish people would turn their sarcasm detectors on before reading my comments… :(
