    Re: Are you kidding me????

    I don't feel bad for her. She was warned and continued. I wonder if she has a mental illness?
    On a side note I just got an email that looks legit.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    Something seems a little fishy about that story.

    $400K? And started with a $100 but kept going? Mortgaging the house and raiding husbands retirement fund? Even if you're a complete loon (obviously), at somepoint doesn't the bank and family step in and PREVENT her from shipping away their lives?

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    Haha I saw that on Digg today. She sent them money for 2 damn years, unbelievable. You'd think at some point she'd mention this to someone over the course of 2 years and they'd tell her she's a moron and do something.

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    Her family and bank officials told her it was all a scam, she said, and begged her to stop, but she persisted because she became obsessed with getting paid

    Come on, people were even telling you not to do it!!!

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    It sucks that she lost all her money, but there obviously wasn't anything anyone could do, she made up her mind and got screwed, sucks for her.

    This is why people still get these e-mails. Because there are still people who fall for it.

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    I'm assuming someone found the person that had the button to be pushed. I know people blowing their life savings sitting at slot machines and nothing you tell them will get them to change. I'm going to assume this is a similar sickness. If you push enough buttons, eventually you'll find the one that is so obsessed with getting free money, they don't see how much it's costing them.

    Re: Are you kidding me????

    At the bottom of the Fox News article is a link to a story from a local TV station's website. From that story...

    Besides her work as a registered nurse, Spears – no relation to the well-known pop star – also teaches CPR and is a reverend who has married many couples.
    Is that really necessary?? Did anyone really think she might be related to Britney?

    I guess maybe the kind of people who would fall for a Nigerian e-mail scam might think that...
