It's just a pity I can't work out what he wants :-) (Perhaps it's not a political asylum he's in? ;) )

He wants you to buy him a house. Thought that was obvious. :roll: :-D

As to any other type of "asylum", I dunno, according to scumbaiters.com, 419eaters.com and other "get your own back on spammers" web sites, a lot of these people are actualy getting hits.

Make you wonder who is in the asylum and who not.

My spam count has actualy gone way down since I changed accounts from GMX. But what we ARE getting plagued by is cold call telephone ads.

Personaly I would shoot the lot. Then, to top it all, because the Napoleonic season is over till next year, I am not getting much work, so as normal over the winter I am looking for something to pay for yule.

The welfare office here tried to suggest I may like to try and get a job at four firms, which they listed for me.

When I went to find out what the jobs were, they were all "cold canvassing on the telephone" jobs. Needless to say I enjoyed myself IMMENSLY telling them what I thought of their "telephone spamming" activitys. :lol:

Oh, I did not get the jobs either. Strange that. Some bosses just can not take the truth. :roll:

The thing is that GREED is such a strong emotion for many people.

At least once per week I get a call from someone wanting sell me non-existing shares :-) .

My wife wonders why they keep doing it. The answer is obvious. They must have some success. And the profit margins on selling stuff that does not exist is very high indeed (not calculable, in fact) :-) .

Aye. Thats all I seem to be getting at the moment, dodgy share options.

About two or three a day. So livable with.

Well, if you look at the two sites I quoted above, they do have a page of people who have actualy fallen for these scams. Mostly, but not all, from Nigeria. On average they are getting done out of tens of thousands, but there are a few cases where they have given these con men hundreds of thousands.

Thing is, I do not feel the slightest bit sorry for them.

You would not hand over $50,000 to some one who turned up on your door step. Why do these people seem to loose all pretence of sanity when it comes over the internet? Serves them right. :-?

I get these e-mails all the time, I feel the smae way, common sense dictated that givingmoney to strangers is never a good idea.

Maybe common sense isn't so common after all!
