Scambags
« on: August 12, 2021, 12:23:43 PM »
Or scumbags...either way.  I had a former client come in this morning, who wanted me to take a look at a letter and "See if we can get some money."  The guy is 93.  He hands me this letter and it took about 3 seconds to recognize it was a scam.  It said a computer had randomly picked out his name and address from a pool of 40,000 people and he was entitled to $4.5 million. Golly gee, how great is that.  It had these official looking stamps all over it.  "Government approved"  "Certified as valid".  I started cracking up reading it.

You have chosen to as the winner of the special lottery for a unique recipient of the winnings.....

Ultimately, at the bottom of the letter was the kicker, asking him to provide his banking info so they could wire the money from Madrid, Spain to his account.  I told the guy, "You've got two choices here, take it to the District Attorney's office to report this scam, or throw it in the trash.  I suggest you do both."  I explained to him what was going on and they were just trying to drain his bank account.  Okay, here's the problem.

His response was, "The phone number on this letter has 14 numbers and my phone won't let me connect with them."

Mr. Smith, do NOT call these people.  Do NOT respond.

"What if I opened up another account with only a hundred or so in it?  You think if I gave them that...."

Mr. Smith, listen to me.  This is a scam.  Do NOT respond to it.  Throw this in the trash.

"I got the same letter last year, but I let the time expire for me to respond."

Mr. Smith, THIS IS A SCAM.  THEY ARE TRYING TO RIP YOU OFF.  DO NOT RESPOND!!!!!

"So you don't think we can get any money out of them?"

Folks, there are some sorry, sorry, soooorrrry ass people in this world.  And there are so many vulnerable people as well.  Don't know if I told you what happened to my dad a few weeks ago.  Scammers are now copying voices of friends and loved ones, and calling you to rip you off.  Good thing he had sense enough to see through it.

So what you're saying is you sent them your bank numbers so you could get the money instead of him?

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Speaking of saying it twice, I couldn't go back to sleep about 4 this morning after a wicked pissah.  I got up and turned on the tube just in time for the start of the uncut Blazing Saddles.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
