    Reminds me of that episode of Married With Children where Buck (the dog) got a credit card in the mail and they bought a bunch of stuff.

    Re: Wooo-hooo!!! Hit the jackpot baby.

    Sad thing is, people STILL actually fall for this stuff...

    My fiance works at a bank in Omaha and just had someone come in last week telling the following story:

    "Yeah, I got this email that said I had won $7500 in the Canadian lottery...which is weird because I didn't even enter it. But they said I just need to cash this check for $2400, send them half of it and they'll send me the $7500 back. It sounds like a really awesome deal."

    Even sadder, I do not exaggerate. My fiance got an award for saving the bank from losing $1200.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    I can get it back for you.

    Send me a check for $275, and I will get it from the other guy for you.

    My question is:
    Why does your dog have an email address?

    Whenever I get spam that has the word "Wang" in it, it's usually not about money.

    Nah, for crap like this. I have like 5 or 10 free emails with my mediacom account and I made up a few for websites or other sign-ups that I don't want to risk my main address getting overrun with spam.

    So if I sign up for apps, downloads, newsletters, whatever that I'm not 100% sure about, I'll use an address like this. Then if it ends up to be something I want to keep and/or legit - I'll move it over to my normal account.

    Works pretty well. You should see my first hotmail account. That thing is unusable it has so much crap headed towards it.

    I get these all the time when I post ad's on craigslist for my businesses. It is kind of annoying but I guess that is what you get for using free advertising. For every 5 scams that reply I might actually get one legit person looking
