    1. Better Scams

      I agree, but in reading many of the scam emails that I get, I think that about most of them… how many people actually believe that one of their relatives won 10 million dollars… appearently enough to keep the scammers going.

      Another one that is going around in the online selling world is…

      I put something up for sale (or auction)

      Someone agrees to purchase it for x price (let’s say 5,000)

      Then, just before you receive the money, they say that someone “accidently” made the check out for 7,000, but since it is a bank check, they can’t change it. And can you please send them a bank check back (since their bank doesn’t take forign personal checks) for the remaining 2,000.

      Their check was a fake, but by the time your bank figgures it out, your check will ready be cashed.

      I have heard about this one for as little as $50, seems like too much work for 50 bucks to me, but who knows.

      Also, since this is perportedly a “business” arrangement, and there are lots of hungry people in Africa, they could be coming back with an offer to purchase 1,000,000 bottles of the stuff, and that could make the money much more than just a few dollars.


  1. I vote Howard answers the email

    Otherwise how will we know what it is?

    (ok, actually I can think of may better things for him to be doing with his time, like drawing more Schlock!)

        Me, I like having fun with phishers.

        Firefox with the web developer extensions and DOM explorer is your friend 😀

    1. Re: All I have to say is:

      I like that idea.

      I was about to ask Howard if it would make a difference to how he would answer or not answer it. Personally, I would just send a note back saying, “I’m sorry, but you’re mistaken. I do not endorse this product.” And if they send back a reply asking for help in another way, then it’s a 419er.

  2. When you get done sending out all that Noni, keep in mind that YOU JUST WON ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Send me $200 and I’ll get right on that paperwork…

    Seriously, he’d have to have an IQ with only one digit to get an email address out of a magazine that sells Noni and confuse it with yours.

  3. Not a chance in hell that it’s anything besides a big scam to get money off you. The mis-punctuation, coupled with a clearly “American” name like Samuel Harrison… that’s a giveaway.

    No way it’d get all the way to the “send me Noni” stage — he wants cash. I’m curious as to how his scam works.
