    Scammers suck.

    I weekly have Indian scammers on the telephone. Always a different one, and when I have the time and I'm in the mood, I annoy them for half an hour by not following up their instructions, and asking the same questions over and over again.

    But yeah, online scammers are far worse and usually less obvious.

    Ugh. I get a shit ton of these scams TO MY WORK EMAIL! Not sure where they're coming from, as our spam software is supposed to filter that out, but I get everything from the Irish lottery winners who are kind enough to want to send me a cut of their winnings to the Nigerian customs officials who confiscated a thief's luggage and found some of my belongings.

    Also beware Ebay, FedEx, and Better Business Bureau. Check the email addresses. My friend just got one from jason@fuckyou.com. It was under an Ebay heading. A lot of times, these scammers will say that thousands of dollars will be coming out of your bank account in an attempt to get you to click on a link. It's a phishing thing.

    These are people finding people through Facebook and dating sites. Then creating entire false personas, drawing someone into a relationship, sometimes for months! Those are the ones that disgust me. Greed is one thing, but THAT'S sadistic.

    I get the Indians, too. I like to fuck with them by ordering Indian takeout.

    Scam: Hello, may I speak to <garbles my name>.
    Me: Ah, I was just about to call you. I'd like a large order of vindaloo, extra spicy, and a cup of tea.
    Scam: No, this is Steve calling from--
    Me: You know what? Make that two orders of vindaloo. I'm really hungry. Thanks.
