They Must Think I was Born Yesterday

I just got an unsolicited e-mail that just had me shaking my head. I am a 49 yo unmarried man who looks (and occasionally acts) his age, so what did this e-mail say. Some stunningly attractive 25 y/o Russian Girl desperately wants to meet me. Yeah. Right.

Assuming it actually is a she behind the e-mail, I think what she really desires is my account and card numbers.

I see I've got to run my spyware and malware programs again.

Where do these people come from?

You are probably kind of shy in person. Hey, those Russian women are cultured and very sexy! There is this one that is the clinical elextronics service manager at one of the hospitals I service in Ohio who is in her late 40's and is very, very sexy! She's blond (with a little gray), has blue eyes, and that accent...MAN! Give in to the dark side! Marry an ex-commie. After all, you root for the RED wings, right?

They come from the cracks in the walls, like roaches, Shoprat!

Don't you have a "junk" folder in your e-mail? I never read that stuff, just delete it with one shot.

I'll bet there are a lot of stupid men out there who fall for that scam. Ignorance is definitely not bliss! :)

No tim it is definitely a scam. (It wasn't even for me so I don't even know how I got it, which concerns me)

lone pony thanks for the compliment but this had nothing to do with the blog

gayle sadly you're right.

Since I have tried online dating I have had at least 18 women (from Russia & Africa & UK) trying to get me to fall for their game. I set myself up as a bigger target from online dating; but the other ones come through people who may have been careless with your email.

I know SR, just goofing around. I think the Lone Pony connection is where you will hit pay dirt. You two could ride the range together, side by side...

You're welcome SR, and I know it was spam, but it gave me a good excuse to compliment your writing.

You know I was just on someone else's blog who was a woman and she got the exact same email. There must've been a mass emailing to bloggers :-).
