You’ll note I left this super-spammer’s deets even though I took out stuff like my last name. I’m REALLY amused that the message didn’t even bother getting my full name from FB (JUST my last name).

Barrister Patrick Lawson, if you’re out there somewhere…I think not, dude. Really, is there ANYONE stupid enough to fall for this crap?

What happens if all of, say, Twitter emailed this dude and asked for his bank account info to transfer $18m to him? Would he be spammed out?

Could we all tell him we have cases of super tasty pork product SPAM to send to his home country if he wires us all $18m?

Disclaimer: Please do not send this dude Spam (of the edible or email/facebook variety). I shared to pass along because this stuff is ridiculous, and if you see something from the email address it’s fake-o-rama.
