MY DESK: MADISON -

It seems that somehow the scammers/spammers know that people are getting wise to their play, so many of their emails refer to the impostors out there trying to get your money. 

Yesterday, we featured the brilliant submission of James Kapellen that included the "Scam Compensation Fund." We follow that up today with a bonus viewer-submission along that same motif.

Thanks Stacey for alerting us to "the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) formerly known as the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC)."

That's just hysterical. If you're trying to scam someone in a language that is not your native tongue, it helps to learn some phraseology. Think Russell Ziskey in Stripes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJqlfMP-klM

As Stacey wrote me, "Boy, they really think we are stupid."  

Just hit delete, my friends but not before you enjoy the prose you find below.

Take care.
