I know we all get these in our email's SPAM folder and check them before deletion. The fact that way too many people see these, open them up, fall for the bait and click on embedded links is sad proof.....one doesn't need to be a rocket scientist, brain surgeon or IT professional to be able to recognize the scam and avoid them.......You only need to be able to read, recognize poor grammar, spelling and punctuation and also understand what constitutes proper sentence construction!

Thanks go out to America's educational system and parents for the recent generations of brain-dead, unmotivated, lazy, spoiled basement dwellers. :confused:

That's what they are counting on. It takes nothing to mass email these things out. It takes time to handle any response. All the grammar issues and misspelled words are their way of weeding out the ones who will recognize it as a scam. The ones that are left are more likely able to be persuaded the email is real.

It's a lot like refining the gene pool....the weaker (and older) animals fall to the rear of the fleeing pack and are more likely to fall prey to the predators, leaving the stronger (and younger) surviving members to procreate! :cool:
