A World Without Internet Scammers

 They have no capacity for shame. They will never stop. They will never find an honest way to make a living. They will say anything, do anything, and act anything to get their mark to buy the story. I speak of that wretched hive of scum and villainy (no, not Mos Eisley) otherwise known to the world as homo sapiens spammeritis irritatingus. The dirtbags who spend their time scamming and spamming our email accounts and blogs with nonsense such as the following, which turned up in my email some weeks ago.

Dear Email Owner,This is to acknowledge the receipt of your message. World Bank Organization is eradicating COVID 19 lock down poverty in America,Asia,Europe,Oceania,Russia for the year 2023/2024 and your name was among the 10 Lucky people listed.Your ATM VISA CARD of ($10.5M USD) was registered with TNT Express Delivery.

Okay then. Unlike my last scammer who had the audacity to address me as dear, this numbskull uses the term "dear email owner". It uses the World Bank Organization (actually, it's just the World Bank, dumbass, but let's not confuse you any more than you already are) as its cover story and invokes Covid-19 reduction.... but then says I'm one of ten lucky bastards chosen to have 10.5 million dollars. In an ATM Visa card.

Oh, sure, that's legitimate. 

This scammer uses some of the tried and true techniques of the internet scammer- spacing and punctuation issues, capitalization issues (to say the least), and dangling a whole lot of money (that doesn't exist) from the World Bank, which doesn't give out money to random people.

Because that's not its function. It works at the national and international level.

But you're counting on one of the 500 000 random email addresses you sent this to to be owned by a dumbass. Someone dumber than you. Someone who sees the figure 10.5 million dollars and can't see the proverbial spam forest for the trees. Someone with their scammer alarm turned right the hell off. Someone whose family has been breeding too close to the gene pool.

When will you learn? This crap doesn't work on me. I see right through you. No matter how many times you keep sending this nonsense my way, I'll respond in the way I'm accustomed to. By ridiculing you. Without end. Until you finally take a hint and stop breathing.

A world without internet scammers. It would be a wonderful world, but unfortunately we don't live in that world. We live in this one. Oh well. 

Perhaps you should try scamming someone higher up the organized crime world than you. And see what they do in response. 


  1. And he starts off with acknowledging receipt of your message, there's a dead giveaway.

  2. But if there were no scammers, what would I post about?

  3. They are annoying. I actually get fewer of these now. I guess the filters are better. Plus the spammers are using robots, so perhaps it is easier to filter them.

  4. Spammers absolutely drive me crazy. There's a special place in hell for them. I did get a phone call from a scammer and I asked him if his mother knew what he was doing for a job. Goodness. He hung up on me. The nerve!


Comments and opinions always welcome. If you're a spammer, your messages aren't going to last long here, even if they do make it past the spam filters. Keep it up with the spam, and I'll send Dick Cheney after you.
