Happy Email Week! Enjoy the Spam Scam Scam…
Mike McKelly just alerted me to the fact that it's National Email Week.
I feel terrible. I didn't even get you anything.
A few years ago, one of my favorite (and underrated) actors, Dean Cameron, received a Nigerian Prince scam email. You know the type I mean; the correspondence starts with someone claiming to be royalty, loaded and in DESPERATE need of YOUR help to get him out of harms' way... and all you have to do is spend a little bit of money to get him and his family to safety, and he promises to let you go swimming Scrooge-McDuck-Style in half his family's treasures. Dean thought he'd be funny and respond to one of the emails, flippantly... and before he knew it, he was scamming the scammery scammers. This is comedy gold, my friends. Take the time. Enjoy the read. It's worth it. Trust me.
