What's truly amazing is the number of people that will fall for this.

This is a good one, just when you build a better mouse trap you find a smarter mouse. LOL

Actually, I have too much gold now. I can't spend it all.

I shared this to help others.

Steve - NO SELLING! Sheesh!

It is amazing that over 50% (much over) will fall for that. A study was done 15 or more years ago regarding viruses. The results were astronomical on the number of people that would click on a virus, even knowing it was a virus, just to see what it would do. I'll wager that scams are the same. Every once in a while you will see a news item on someone who had their bank account wiped out.

Route 66, you spelled "ship" wrong.
