Why is my mailbox full of offers for things that enhance a part of the body that women don't have? Why do folks from foreign countries want me to help them assist in getting millions of dollars to the United States? Why do banks where I don't have an account want me to login in because they've had a security breach?

Do folks really fall for these scams? I'm thinking that they obviously do, or the spammers would get tired and stop, wouldn't they? Wouldn't they? They are making money or they wouldn't continue. And if that is indeed the case, I'm broke and am now trying to think of a scam scheme that will bring me a boatload of money. Any ideas?--I'll split the profits with you...

Your comments--priceless!!

    Now ordinarily I'd be with you. But since I don't look good in orange and my feet are way too big for those plastic prison shoes...I'm going to have to pass on this lil money making venture. FYI: I'm sure I have a cake recipe where a file can be inserted.

    who would send a check for like 4,000 through the mail. I love mail, but that's insane.. based on someone's word??? no way!!

    I'd totally take you up on the offer, but I say people should treat people how they wanna be treated and I'm totally sick of spam messages!!!!

    LOVE the layout by the way!!! very cute.

    Keep up the good work!!

  5. Jewel, thanks for stopping by my blog and following me. Posting marital secrets for young wives and mothers is what I do "one the side". I hope you enjoyed my letter from Halle Berry!

    You could try the old chain letter, send $10 to the person who's name is at the top of the list and make sure it is your name and ya send it to lots of people. Oh use a post office box so they don't arrest you in front of the children!

    Don't let folks fool you they fall for the spams - that's why they keep coming. Lawwd only knows how many folks have received spams and responded to it. At our family reunion meetings 2 years ago we talked about spam mail because a cousin of mine received a check for $5000.00 in the mail saying he had won some sweepstakes, at least this is the story he told us... we believe he responded to some spam mail - anyway they asked him to send $1500.00 to receive the balance of his winnings. He of course deposited his winnings in a new savings account and said he'd see what would happen...he didn't touch the funds, and he didn't send them the $1500.00 dollars, however, he found out a week later the check was listed as having insufficient funds - 1 week - long enough for someone to send $1500.00that they would never be see again - he was LUCKY but many are not. I just open find the "GET ME OFF YOUR LIST ON THE EMAIL" AND DELETE those that make it through to my regular e-mails.

    Oh, these are parts of my daily life! I actually DO earn from the internet in my spare time, and because I do that, the spam comes to me about 100 times more than the average person. Think - 200+ spam messages per day.

    On the plus side, I have been earning additional money for each month - a small price to pay.

    I actually read somewhere that the smart thing to do with the people who email you asking for you to convert money for them or whatnot is start talking with them and make it seem like you really want to help them. Tell them that you are sorry their great aunt beatrice died and left them with all this money that they cannot access until you put it in their accounts, or whatever the scam may be. get a few emails going back and fourth, asking them to explain to you exactly how this all works. Eventually, you should ask them to paypal a small amount of money, just so you know that this is not a scam.

    I personally have never gotten a person to do this, but I know people who have, which is funny, because you are scamming the scammer! I just don't have the patience.

    But anyway, if you're looking to make a bit of extra money, I wrote a HUGE crash course entry on my blog about how to earn extra money in your spare time using the internet, so if you are interested, you should definitely check it out! I wrote the entry pretty recently, so it shouldn't be too far back.
