I do not understand why they still work!! How stupid are people?! I recently got an e-mail pretending to be from my bank (surprisingly they got the bank right this time) claiming that, if I didn’t submit such-and-such information that they were going to turn off my online banking. I DON’T BANK ONLINE!!!! Sorry, but these things do infuriate me. Naturally, I forwarded the message to my bank’s fraud department as I thought it might interest them. I always do this with e-mails that pretend to come from banks. Most of the time, they pick a bank that I don’t do business with. Sometimes, they pick a bank I’ve never heard of. But every bank will tell you that they do not send e-mails like that. If there are any irregularities, they want you to come in to a physical branch. Admittedly, that’s a little harder to fake.
Oh, yes, I got another e-mail on my Hotmail account threatening to close that in 24 hours if I didn’t reply with some personal information. I forwarded that one on to the Hotmail team. I haven’t heard back from that one, yet. My account still works, though. And it has been several days. I want the people behind these scams to be in jail with no access to a computer. But what really frustrates me is that there are still people who fall for it. I mean, I’m annoyed every time something like this pops into my inbox. But I don’t make such scams profitable.
Hey, if you don’t want your money, just give it to me. I could use it. And I’m not going to lie to you to get it. Some people are just too stupid to be allowed near a computer.
