•••The scams are clearly not meant to take advantage of most of the readers on this board. The real victims of these scams are the elderly, many of which are not thinking as clearly as they used to.

What annoys me about this sort of post is the veiled insult that people think we need to bew alerted of such scams, that we are too stupid to see for ourselves that it's a scam.

We all know it goes on, we all know not to give any details out, we all know to look at the email address to see if there is even a hint of BS, yet people still think it's necessary to propegate and fill up our in boxes with such crap, implying we are too stupid to see for ourselves.
