Honestly, some people really have no shame! By people I mean, of course, scammers, cheats and online thiefs. The number of times in the past month or so I have been approached by these parasites on social media or by email is unbelievable and the schemes they come up with are sooooo ludicrous they'd be as well simply asking me to 'Send $100 in plain, unmarked bills'! By the way, where did they get my email address?

On some emails, I'm tempted to reply back and actually play along just to see how far it goes.

@ScotMac my husband signs up for nothing online, and he gets these scams. I think they have programs that just keep making up emails and searching.

There are scammers everywhere. We get them on the phone. They should be ashamed of themselves; but they're not!

I like to string phone scammers along and keep them talking for as long as possible - I find it hugely entertaining listening to them spew their nonsense thinking that I'm falling for it

I wish I could find a way to reverse that process and take some of their ill-gotten gains out of their bank accounts!

If I see weird emails title about my Paypal, banks or whatever, I'll just ignore it. Do they know or care that I don't have an account in Bank of America? I don't even know whether the bank exist. I am not even American!!!

I keep getting warned that my Amazon Prime Account is about to be deleted unless I pay $79.99 immediately. I don't have an Amazon Prime Account and I never have had
