That idiot actually responded with “tell me where to send the money.” UNBELIEVABLE!
My response was:
Due to the numerous scams on the internet, I must ask that you send a CERTIFIED MONEY ORDER from your bank for the agreed amount. This is to ensure the funds will be collectible.
I know you understand. We must be careful of the scumbags who troll the internet, looking for easy money and trying to take advantage of unsuspecting victims.
Here are your instructions:
A bank certified money order in the amount of $500.00.
Made payable to Michelle Obama (Obviously I used a pen name for this email account.)
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D. C. 20500
(Please mark it “PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL.”)
As with all correspondence arriving at the White House, it will be investigated by the Secret Service and the FBI, but don’t be concerned.
Fine, upstanding citizens like you, who are only trying to help the innocent are to be commended, not investigated.
Looking forward to doing business with you.
I got two more “invitations” this morning. I don’t think I’ll play with them. I may just send them a message, saying something like “my hacker is better than your hacker. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.”
