Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind

A cartoonish look at life...

A load of Croc

May 09, 2009

Seems like every other day or so we read about one internet scam or another. Just in the last couple of weeks I have received several offers guaranteeing me unimaginable wealth if I just send all my personal information to the son or daughter of a now deposed ruler of some third world country. I am always amazed that anybody in their right mind would even give one of these crooks a second thought. Sometimes just for fun I respond back in broken English telling the scam artist how grateful I am that we have been miraculously brought together. I can usually keep the correspondence going back and forth for three or four times until either they give up or I tire of the game and tell them what I really think about ‘em. It can get pretty ugly, but I admit I do enjoy keeping them going in a perverse sort of way.  The most fun I think I ever had was when I received two same emails on the same day. I had some real fun introducing the scammers to each other via email. I would have loved to see if either one of them was able to swindle the other. Wouldn’t that have been some sweet poetic justice!

Have I got a deal for you! Just visit:

Do not respond to any of these crooks as I have a friend who told one of them off and then the crook sent a virus to his computer and it took my friend many many weeks to get his computer working again.
