We just got an email from an obvious scammer at my hotel. I am copying this verbatim.

Hi,
I'm Amanda and we booked a room at your hotel for the 15th and 16th of Febuary.
We will be staying four days.
Please reserve us a room our financial information is in the attached pdf file.
 Thanks.

Yeah right I'm really not going to open a pdf from someone who can't keep her story straight. God knows what kind of virus was in that file.

That was breathtaking. Beautiful. We should all be Andrew.
Some day, I hope to get paid to kill people. Now, I just do it for fun.

Yesterday I was reading a news article on a website I've visited many times.  All of a sudden my screen was taken over by a big red border and message that stated something about the fact that my computer had been taken over by something that was going to keep me from accessing any information on it.  Further more, a phone number was provided and I was told not to touch my computer but to call immediately so that Windows could fix my computer, or something to that effect.   Of course, I  calmly went off line and clicked on my protection program and did a thorough scan and then continued with my day.  Nothing was found on my system.  Things like that do make me nervous though!

A few months back my boss called that number, gave them remote access to his computer and a credit card to pay for their "service" to repair it.   ::)

amazing. How did he become boss?

I was just watching a UK documentary on scammers, I can't believe anyone over the age of 12 doesn't realize the "shell game" or 3 card monte is a scam.

There's always has to be the first time you hear about common scams, even for book smart people. And scammers are getting more convincing every day, especially since technology is still relatively new. Messages keep popping up on my brand new phone that seems to come from my service provider and I still can't tell what is real and what is not.

Back when I got my first credit card, I almost (*almost* is the key word, thank goodness) fell for the magazine scam and the "you won a cruise" scam because I wasn't aware of these type of scams. Back then, I didn't connect it to my CC. Once your name is out there, you're screwed. >:(

He's in his 70's.  Try as he might, technology is too confusing.

I can kind of understand that, unless you've heard of it, you think it *should* be possible to track the pea. There seems to be a difficulty in some people's minds in considering that the guy on the other side of the table really won't play by the rules.

This is a ‘Nigerian Prince’

Quote
Police have arrested a 67-year-old Lousiana man who allegedly helped a gang of international scammers bilk unsuspecting email recipients of their savings.
Michale Neu, who is neither royalty nor Nigerian, was charged with 289 counts of wire fraud and money laundering.

It’s the guy’s photo that prompted the headline

Hopefully, after he is convicted the judge will include the words "to be served consecutively" to the sentencing order.

My mom's younger sister passed away in August after a very long difficult health battle.  My aunt was married three times.  She still got along with Husband #1 and Husband #3 is the one who loved her most.  He took very good care of her.  Husband #2 is all kinds of special.

Apparently when Aunt and Husband #2 were married Aunt took out a small life insurance policy with #2 as beneficiary.  #2 borrowed against the policy so he could buy a boat  :o and never repaid the loan.  Husband #3 has been paying the premium on that policy since he married Aunt 10 years ago.  Apparently, no one ever changed the beneficiary.

So #2 finds out Aunt has passed away and comes to #3's house, pounding on the door, demanding a death certificate so he can get "his" money.  #3 told him to pound sand.

We later found out that #2 can't collect on the policy due for some reason concerning their divorce and the money was divided amongst her 4 children.

Just learned of a new scam when someone noticed my niece's obituary on their site: "Afterlife.co".  These ... people ... mine obituaries, re-post them to their site, then encourage people to pay to "offer a comforting animated candle" and other add-ons.  Absolutely sickening.
