With technology changing so fast, maybe someday there will be a way to reach our hands through the phone lines and choke the morons making these calls.
You mean Rachael isn't a real person? But... but... she said if I gave her my information that her and I could go out tonight and celebrate! You mean she's not going to show up? After I took a BATH and EVERYthing??????

....dammit....

Good idea! I think I have a good whistle around here somewhere. I'm going to try it.

Whoa! Wait a minute! Is it even legal for a telemarketer to lie like that? You should report her.

Ooh I know. I got a similar call once. The guy sounded like indian or something like that but he asked me to transfer money via Money Gram. Never ever send money with WU or Money gram. that's the first sign of a scam

Scam warnings!


A little over a week ago I placed an ad on Craigslist for a vehicle I have for sale. I had no response until yesterday when I received an e-mail asking if the vehicle was still available, I responded simply with “yes it is” today I received another e-mail from the same person I attached below.

I have no doubt this is a scam but has anyone seen this one before, do people really fall for this crap?

They're scum.

The only nice thing about those idiots is that they have poor grammar skills, which makes it obvious that they're thieves.

I'm still getting calls from "Rachel at Card Services". I wish the FCC could do something about 'her'.

Yeah! Like, I hope they call her every time she is walking out the door so that she has to run back inside to answer the phone and every time she just steps into the shower or sits down on the commode or is in the middle of changing a messy diaper or......

If it's too good to be true, then it's definitely a scam. Nothing is too good these days, it's either too good but so expensive, or too good but not true at all.

The best one is the heavily accented individual who calls and says they are calling about your computer and they know you are getting error messages, then they want you to get into your computer and give them access to your system for them to review your "error messages"...right....I had one nut who kept calling me back all night when I told him I know this is a scam and he argued with me! LOL

Scam warnings!


The funnest way to deal with the phone and door to door scammers is to let them ask how your doing. They asked right?

Well, not to good. You see my son just got arrested for dealing cocaine and heroine in the White House and now he's gonna lose his internship with Obama all over the fact that he was doing it for his lesbian girlfriend that is really dating my grand daughter who just got pregnant when she was gang raped at the blue oyster bar by a bunch of AIDS infected transexuals. Now my wife has left me for my borther who was killed in a skiing accident in Hawaii, seems he fell into a volcano and the rescue services wants me to pay this huge bill for pulling his pieces out of the volcano and I was going to have him shipped home but I got scammed by the funeral home and now theyir holding his ashes and pieces until I can come up with a way to start paying them off. That is why I recently started dealing drugs, but it's getting harder and harder because the cops have bugged my phones and now everytime I call my doctor for a prescription for this nasty infection from my ingrown toenail they raid his office thinking he's my supplier but really it's my daughter's lesbian girlfriends husbands gay partner's dad who is the supplier but I guess I shouldn't tell you that. Recently I found out my mom has the gout and now I have to bathe her twice a day but she weighs 450 lbs, by the way can you help me lift her out of the tub?
