I get hit with these phishing mails almost weekly from the classifieds. Ready to buy, no specific reference to the product, want your information.... Alright kids, who can guess how this goes if you play along?

By the way, if you google the e-mail address, you get this link:

you'd think some of these guys would at least try to lessen the broken English but it certainly does make 'em easy to spot. I swear i get a little chuckle seeing them try though lol. Almost as funny as talking to some of the tech help lines in India and them telling you there name is Judy or Bob, that always cracks me up

I get them like crazy off of Craigslist. Sad if someone actually falls for the BS. You would have to be a complete idiot
