Saturday Musings - Fun with a scammer!

20200328_toasterscam Have you ever wanted to turn the tables on a scammer?

I thought I’d lighten the mood this Saturday and recount a recent experience I had with a scammer. He contacted me via skype and inspired by renown comedian James Veitch, I thought that I’d have a little bit of fun with him…..after all he wanted to invest over a billion dollars into my toaster company.

Escrow.com

I think that sometimes in these trying times we can forget to have a little bit of a laugh. Being human is about surviving through the tumultuous times and having a giggle as you do so. Remember, if you get serious with life then life may get serious with you.

Have a great weekend!
Michael

Also just reminds me of how often I have explained to people how email actually works, and how horrendously insecure it is. Very few people ever get it. lol
