The scammer says:
1) Just pay $355 for “Fedex” to send $800,000 to you.
2) But don’t call Fedex, but email to this: email@example.com
This is a typical, stupid scammer. This is HOW I would reply him.
1) Please deduct $355 from $800,000 and gimme $799,645. If you can’t do this, SHUT THE FUCK UP and go to hell. I am NOT paying a single cent.
2) Fedex is at “firstname.lastname@example.org”? Is this FEDEX EMAIL ACCOUNT? You must be a fucking scammer!
Hey, you DON’T have to be nice with these morons. These scammers have ripped of THOUSANDS, including elderly people of the lifetime savings. While some unforgiving readers would say that it is stupid for people to believe in such stories, we are pointing our fingers at these scammers.
