1. Yes. Because there is always someone gullible enough to fall for this nonsense.

2. Are you trying to break vinyl's record for the longest post in CM history? (lines only, obviously the word count record is secure for ever).
 
Im pretty sure that spam is often intentionally written badly, that way mostly the gullible people who might actually fall for the scam bother to even reply.
 
I'd love to know what 'scanner' they use which can read a card in an envelope, simultaneously hacking into the bank's data to establish the credit limit or account balance. Maybe it's a new Casino rewards promo? :D
 
Read and weep:

They still make millions a year with their scams because every day there are thousands and thousands of people online that have no clue how the www works.
Even if they get one person a day to pay them €300.00 or €500.00 or whatever amount, still a nice wage on the end of the month,no? :oops:

And of course they are proud of their "job"

I like they way they justify it by talking about those nasty fraudsters and those stolen cards and checks, this from someone who has infiltrated my private parcel and read my credit card.
 
I wonder how anyone falls for them too, they are so bad to be true.
I used to contribute to 419eater when I was younger and had time to bait them, but out of all the ones I've seen I think the p-p-p-powerbook one was up there with the best.

I always liked this type too
