Started a spreadsheet. Not REPLYING to scammers, just keeping a running total of how much they say I'm getting.
If they don't SAY what my cut is going to be, but are just enticing me with a vague offer, I'm putting in $10,000, since there's no REAL money coming FROM them TO me.

By lunch time on the 7th, I'm already up to
$128,210,000.00

Invest is wisely. And you can live off the interest for a long time. ;-) Brad

...well, Mike, I think I see your first problem: IF you do want some REAL money coming from them to you, you have to REPLY.   cheeky

Edit: 2021 I presume.

It's been slow.

Three more, including one from Mr. George Sheringham, of the United Nations Foreign office.
So I'm up to $157,680,000 by lunchtime on the 15th.

I shall now have to see if there IS such a Department, since, as far as I know, EVERYBODY in the United Nations IS a "foreigner" to somebody else in that same international group!

How do you get so many offers. They must like you. No one offers me anything. But I don't get spam emails and only answer the phone for recognised numbers. I assume the United Nations Foreign Office deals with aliens (and keep quite about it).

Bunnings Scam;

Bunnings is a hardware chain similar to The Home Depot in the US.

A 'heads up' warning for all men who may be regular Bunnings Warehouse customers. Over the last month a good friend of mine became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping.

Simply going out to get some nuts and bolts and some potting mix has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.

Here's how the scam works:
Two very hot 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the boot. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex. With their hot looking T-shirts and other attributes, it is impossible not to look. You cannot 'unsee' what is before you! When you thank them and offer a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to another Bunnings Warehouse in an adjoining suburb.
You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, and do some things that are pleasurable but not safe to mention here, while the other one steals your wallet.

My friend had his wallet stolen on September 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also October 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, & three times last Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.
P.S. In the Reject Shop (equivalent to US Dollar Stores) you can buy wallets for 50c each.

This one sounds like fun!  Fill the 50 cent wallet with $200 bills printed at home.  Install a hidden camera in the vehicle.  Drive to store.  Wait til the clothes come off.  Then toss the lovelies out on the side of the road, minus the clothes.  Put the video up on youtube

Yeah, I can play on their level.

Is there a way you could host a lottery on your winnings. Pay by bit coin.

Law firms and others broker uncollected debts all the time. I have seen them buy a bundle of bad debts, milk them for a while, then sell them again and the next firm works what the first firm could not collect, then perhaps even again. I was executor for a family member, and it took several years before I quit getting calls and letters.
So perhaps someone one will buy your bundle and take a swing at collecting. ;-) brad

A sure fire guarantee for you Mike, if you keep a running total. I'm pretty sure you will "make" more from scammers than you would winning the lottery. And no need to go buy them numbery or scratchy tickets any more.

Do you need to do a little house keeping Mike ? I don’t get any of this cash offer spam, I did get a viagra offer today - which my wife told me to delete before I could check if it was authentic or not, but the last Nigerian Prince who contacted me must’ve been a couple of years back

Most of these don't make it past my ISP nowadays too - so I never see them. Way back in the days of bulletin boards I used to get frequent emails telling me of ways to increase the size of a certain body part. One day I got an email entitled '11 or 12 inches ?'. I thought 'That's a bit ambitious' until I opened it and found it was from Banjo-L asking about peoples preferred head diameter.

He he he.  One time I had a fly fishing tutorial session booked.  When 'Czech Nymphing' popped up in the shared family calendar, my wife asked me if she needed to buy a special outfit for it.
