Especially when you're a scam artist
And that would definitely rank up there with the best written scam messages I've ever read. And certainly the best reply.
Jodie sounds a lot like my mum's rich, handsome German boyfriend who would love to come pick her up and take her to paradise with him, but unfortunately he works on an oil rig and needs Google Play gift cards to buy machinery for the rig.
He taught me a valuable life lesson over a Google Hangouts voice chat, kind of like a father would a son: that the German accent is identical to the Nigerian accent.
Fuck google play cards. But thank googles spam filter and alerts letting me know the message wasn’t from someone I know. Idve been fooled otherwise.
On that note I’ve gotten several text messages asking if I was willing to own such and such house at something address.
I always reply, “4,000,000.”
Then, “going, going, gone.”
Then, “but if you throw in a blowjob I might reconsider.”
Sometimes they try: “hey girl you want to meet a hot man?”
I reply, “I’m 14 pervert.”
Weird! Just this morning I referenced the cat body temperature thing in conversation with my cat. Thanks for the shocking piece of writing. I was fooled and delighted.
I was just meditating, and recalled when I inquired about renting a home in Evergreen, CO, and a scam artist tried to set up a Google Voice account attached to my phone number in reply to a listing. Attempted to rush me to share the validation code texted to me. Still no clue how they could make money this way, but I impolitely declined. I got up from my meditation because my eyes were itching due to the new kitten, picked up my phone, and read this. My eyeball still itches.
Did you get the video/photos of Sage/Wednesday from Dennis?
I hate scammers!!!!
I'm embarrassed to say I didn't even consider this a scam and was jaw dropped at Chuck's reply HA Anyone want some Good Play cards?
Toxoplasmosis and a desire to use the dying as heat-pad for their ass. What’s up with cats, man?
Oh my gosh! Also, I have a lizard (bearded dragon, but similar enough?) and agree that this would be a wonderful gift!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would that make a cat a "purrin'" of interest in case of a mysterious death?
If I'm near death and someone gives me a Google Play card...or a cat...I'll kill him (or her - closed parenthesis). But not the cat.
Story is indeed everything. Take fortune tellers, tarot readers, self proclaimed saints, spiritual healers and the like, they'd spend weeks and weeks building a profile on a probable victim. Preferably the desperate ultra-religious types. They use spies and all sorts of theatrics, using the wow factor brilliantly, building the perfect story. They tried to scam my mother once but, her careful nature saved her.
Am i the only one thinking about Judy's friend and how she will feel when Judy will open the door, a phone in her hand, saying "i tried as hard as i could... Bit i'm sorry, dying friend... no google card for you..."
Even the ceiling fan will cry.
Next email from the person is under the subject: ‘DO YOU THINK I’M FUCKING PLAYING???’ Followed by an attached image that shows someone holding a gun aimed at a copy of ‘The Collected works of Amy Hempel’.
Tetherfield the American Iguana. Gold.
Sheesh Chuck, I'd hate to send you a love letter when your mind is still in Gloves Off mode. Funny, maybe when you see all the coding like Neo, you can't really go back. I bet it's such an ingrained habit for you at this point, you are probably mentally correcting this comment. Probably every comment here.
Also I had to look up Iguanas cause this rock iguana knows commands and is ACTUALLY affectionate...and I found another video saying don't get a green iguana cause they are not nice. I bet they are the same ones that whip you with their tails!
Oh wait...something just hit me. Her email does kinda read like a hustle. I don't know. Something tells me she is just gonna use the gift cards for herself.
I just love how everything is slowly revealing itself haha
