    Why is spamming such a problem on this website?

    Now I'm upset!
    I got the same email this morning and ASSUMED it was in consolation because I didn't win one of the giveaway Teles. So, it's a scam?!?
    Actually, I'm amazed people are still pulling this crap, and was wondering whether I should report it here.
    Others received it too? I don't feel special anymore.

    So it's basically a Tele-fied Nigerian prince scam.

    Robert Dogbey is such an Arab sounding name...

    He can't even spell it correctly in his email address.

    Hmm. I'd bet he'd be willing to go 60-40 in your favor to be able to get at that money before some Nigerian prince happens along and gobbles it up.

    You should haggle with him.

    Robert sounds like an Arabic name to you?

    Too bad there isn't a sarcasm font, but even the last name sounds pretty West African, possibly Nigerian.

    I got one of those emails too. I just deleted it and forgot about it.

    I think it was automatically generated by software.

    I don't know why editing a post is so hard. I wasn't able to fix a couple of obvious problems in the post above. I'll have to be more careful with my original posts.

    I'm more of a blow torch and big pliers kinda guy, but okay... refinements are cool...

    I do currently have a bag of lime, some rope, a tarp and a shovel at the edge of my garage... I didn't notice it, but my neighbor did... I just smiled and nodded when he asked if I was planning something... 'oh yeah'
