I'm a millionaire

I got a phone call today from scammers.

Love 'em love 'em love 'em

Here's a quick summary

He said I won 5 million bucks. I got all excited because these are my favorite scammers.

He explained it came from Obama himself. Of course I asked to meet him. Sadly, the President is too busy.

So I asked him to send the check right away as I could use some cash.

Then he explained about the $250, to cover the cost of the US Marshalls, and other incidentals.

I explained I'll pay on delivery, and include a big tip for the driver.

After going on like this for 5 minutes or more he put his supervisor on the line.

The supervisor explained that a $250 dollar tip meant nothing to him because he was the CEO of the company and made much more than that.

Spoke with the CEO for about 10 minutes, then I just hung up because my doctor was calling.

They called back another 3 times but I was busy.

I love telemarketers.

Well, I was going to act like I was the one who called, but some other moron beat me to it. I really hate it when I get out-moroned. Hey, I have been practicing real hard, and I thought I had gotten pretty good at it!

I wonder what percentage of people really fall for that.
It must be enough to make it worth their while, cuz they still keep on trying.

I also wonder what NEW scams they're trying to hatch right this very moment. Just think, in another year or two we may be doing blog posts about the "great penguin tele-scandal of 2010".
