WARNING: I'm going to get mildly offensive and have a short rant, so if you are of a delicate nature look away now. I would hate to be responsible for causing mental anguish.
This morning I opened my email account to find this:
I`m Chris from USA, Just want to let you know that I have Royal Enfield 1912 prototype parts. Get back to me on my email if you are interested
In case you are ever on the receiving end of an attempted scam from 'Chris', his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Now 'Chris' might be a very nice man, or even a very, very nice man - but I suspect not!
My response (I don't normally respond to these emails, but this morning it tweaked a nerve) was as follows:
Don't be silly, take the trouble to look up the meaning of PROTOTYPE. The fact that it is a prototype means no one has parts! Try scamming some one else.
We all know where this would have led, if I had been taken in by this amazing solution to all my problems.........
It's good that these knobheads have so little intelect as to make their emails immediately identifiable as a scamming attempt, but they do wind me up! What sort of mentality do these scrotes possess? I have spent my entire life from the age of 16 WORKING for various organisations, some good, some not so good, in order to support my own little world including my hobbies, wife and 2 offspring (not necessarily in that order). What little money I have available is rightfully mine, accumulated through effort, manpower, employment etc. What sort of twisted mentality allows these scrotes to think they also have a right to my little pot of cash? I'm not a charity (and neither are they deserving causes).
I may be 'old skool', or maybe I have a reasonable amount of moral fibre, but I wouldn't/couldn't stoop to this kind of activity.
When I rule the world, there will be much cleansing of the human phsyche! 😉
