Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Ah, when people think you're dumb...

The email scam of the day...

Sir Michael Rake
BT Group PLC
London, England

I am Sir. Micheal Rake, Chairman, BT Group PLC,
I have a business proposal which might interest you.
Its a win win situation especially for you.
Our sharing ratio will be 50-50 Should in case you are interested.

Sir Michael Rake
BT Group PLC
London, England


Dear Unlikely-to-be-Sir-Michael --

Oh, the irony that the Chairman of the Board of Britain's largest telecom service provider would have a comcast.net email address. <3<3<3

I think the saddest thing is that there are people out there who google Sir Michael and the BT Group and think "Wow, these are legitimate people, this email must be legit!"

*shakes head* I am tempted to hit up their website and forward your email address to them to let them know that his (and the BT Group's) presumably good name are being taken in vain by complete idiots. Honestly, the heads of major corporations don't send unsolicited, vague emails to drum up business. They have salespeople who solicit business with, one hopes, well-researched, well written, and well reasoned pitches that do not result in my wanting to send a picture of Wil Wheaton collating papers.

So, Unlikely-to-Be-Sir-Michael-Rake, I totally apologize for not being birthed via the Icey Forceps Of Idiocy, nor having been beaten bloody by the Baseball Bat of Brainlessness, nor drinking fresh, steaming Mugs of Mindlessness. I'm fresh out of stupid for you this morning. I have to get to work right now, but I will be forwarding your lovely note to the FBI when I get home.

Wait, wait. Is that Sir Michael Rake, or Sir Micheal Rake? I think the author is confused. I know I am.
