blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Sure, Let Me Write You A Check For $179,000

Sure, Let Me Write You A Check For $179,000

In the story there was a reference to how the scam began with an email from someone representing themselves to be in Hong Kong. My law partner and I got the same email about six months ago and spoke briefly about how "authentic" it seemed. It was a far cry from the Nigerian letters that we all receive. But we weren't dumb enough to fall for it like the three Texas lawyers in the story. I noticed where one of them said, "You would think that lawyers would be smarter, but it's funny they fall victim." Well, with an attitude like that, that explains how you got scammed, hoss. Edit: Dang it. The guy who said that actually didn't get scammed. That's what I get for skimming an article before 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. But I still hope he gets scammed in the future.

I saw that news story also and thought the exact same thing about the dipstick lawyer who thinks he is so extremely smarter than everyone else because he is a lawyer! I'm glad he got scammed, he deserved it. It only takes a little common sense!

The one who made the comment was the only one who did NOT get scammed.

Thanks Barry, it is always good to hear of lawyers getting a taste of their own medicine. It doesn't taste so good, huh?

I have an idea. Instead of waiting until AFTER someone is killed, maimed, tortured, burned or otherwise suffers tomorrow, and THEN asking God to step in and be with them and their families; let's all do our prayers NOW and ask that those calamities don't happen in the first place.

People are born to fall for scams. Big, fat moms pay huge fees to enter their little darlings in "Little Miss Perfect" pageants at which the only people in the audience are the big fat moms. And yet, these fake pageant directors make the big bucks playing off the needs of the moms to live through their infants; some contestants are dragging umbilical cords across the stage for crying out loud. "Little Miss Afterbirth of North Nashville is....." and so on.

On a serious note about these scam emails and checks. If you receive on repot it to the postmaster and he will turn it over to proper authorities. This is the only way to hopefully get these stopped. I have received several in the mail for different amounts.
