PostSubject: Money Angel...   Tue Sep 02, 2008 2:05 pm

Hi guys,

I'M NOT JOKING about this. Sad

My very good mate, "Big Jim" sent me this crap today. You may remember him as the "true ghost believer", from one of my firsts posts (changed his name to protect him).

It's one of those chain emails that promises wealth if you send it to six very good mates, and if you send it onto 12. Well, you'll get even more chash. Why do seemingly intelligent people believe in this drivel?! No


Here's what he said to me in the emial:

"I know this is bollox… but I am desperate to win the lotto!!!!
Lotto - Hope this works!"

Here's the scam:

"Money Angel

This is a money angel
Pass it to 6 of your good friends, or family and be rich in 4 Days.
Pass it to 12 of your good friends. Or family and be rich in 2 Days.
I am not joking. You will find an unexpected windfall.
If you delete it, you will beg.

Trust me!!! "


Talk about someone with a classic fantasy prone personality.... I was raging when I got this. Who actually spends time dreaming up this crap in the first place? People say this type of thing is often innocuous. But it preys on peoples hopes and greed. Not to mention clogging up cyberspace with lots more crap, and then giving more people the idea to do something similar.

Does it have any particular function at all, or is it just sent to annoy us Skeptics Smile?
