419 Morons!

Good lord! I can’t believe that people haven’t learned yet. In the past week, I have seen 2 stories about some dumbass losing hundreds of thousands of dollars to a scammer in a 419 Scam.

First we have John Rempel who sounds like not only did he lose his own savings, but decided to take some friends and family along with him. Nice job John!

Next up, we have Richard T. Howell Jr. which was another form of the 419 scam. Now, Howell got caught up in something a lot more sophisticated. But even he admits he was a dumbass.

So let this be the warning to everyone out there. If it comes in email, and it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Delete it and move on with your life.
