If you going to con someone at least have enough respect to make your con look like it is somewhat professional and not done by your 1st grade drop out kid. Just no respect whatsoever anymore. :shrug: People used to put a lot of time and effort into coning people. Are people so stupid these days it doesn't require creative and detailed work to rip them off? WTF is up with society these days...

Sigh....

Actually, the mis-spelling is intentional so that it gets around the spam filters.

Oh Jesus, forgot about that. Well it is a no win situation for them. The people that know it is spelled wrong to avoid spam filter ignore the message anyway, the one's that don't disregard it as a joke by some illiterate kiddy. Do people really buy into this shit? I wonder what they really do with your credit card number...

I have to wonder how often they change the site addy they operate from. It would seem to me it would have to be VERY often, to avoid getting prosecuted.

Perhaps they are a off shore operation?

As to what they'd do with a CC#, those who send them a CC# while also knowing they are thieves will get what they have coming to them...............hopefully not soft warz.

the poor spelling is to get around bayesian spam filters (who score words and word patterns to determine "spammyness").

You are correct. I went to the site linked in the e-mail and their site is full of spelling errors as well.

Ha! Didn't even add the numbers. You are correct. 299 - 32 isn't 254! :shrug:

This spam is crazy. I worked on this one lady's comp, and it just went crazy. there must have been 1000 spams on it and they were all just like this stuff.

i especially like the ones for viagra, but they spell it wrong, of course.
