        I don't know of a bulk-mailout feature to SPAM RF'rs ... Is it worth doing it one at a time?

        Is it worth doing it at all? Does anybody respond to this s*it?

          Unfortunately I can't help this poor guy out. All my loose cash is tied up helping out another unfortunate man whose uncle was an Ambassador for some African company and wanted me to help him get 28 million out of the country when the government was overthrown. Boy, can you believe the bad luck of some folks. I guess this kind of thing happens a lot over there. When we all cash in and get our payout from helping these people, let's get all us new millionaires together for dinner. Fred PS. The sad thing is that there are people who get sucked into these schemes.

              He is locked out...And hopefully we can find a way to prevent the mass-mailings. You all did the right thing, notify a moderator ASAP. Thanks.

                Dear John Dikko:
                Thanks for the opportunity to make a "bundle" of American cash............ I will participate in any scam you may devise. But first I would like to discuss my commission on the 4,000 e-mail address I have provided you with from the web site"roadfood.com". I though you agreed that $2.00 per e-mail address was to be my cut. Your check arrived yesterday and your $150.00 US dollars short. Please note that I have an additional list of e-mail address from the web site http://www.roguefood.com that will be very lucrative because the participants of that site are such that any scam presented to them will look like a dream come true ........... Their that king of people John I kid you not.
                Although the list is a lot shorter then Roadfood.com's list I will be asking you to up the anti to double the $2.00 each to $4.00 each address................. using your kind of logic the folks at http://www.roguefood.com are twice as dumb so double my comish............ Please.
                There is also the mater of the $350.00 you owe me for providing you with the social security numbers of Al The Mayor and Sundancer 70 . And just because you found there bank accounts empty does not mean you don't owe me my dues.
                I'll be looking forward to you next scam and remember that I will provide you with all the misspelled words you can use at no additional cost for I feel we mis-spellers should stick together.
                Respectfully, Your Partner in Crime

                  Gee Al, You locked him out? Should have at least given us a chance to take a shot at him for a bit. Oh well back to food discussions. Chow Jim

                                Yes, whenever I get those, I always reach into my savings account, checking account, 401k and credit card accounts to see how I can help those poor unfortunate people!

                                    Yeah....have faith. I trust Mr. Dikko and have already planned the color for my new Maserati 335T, found the new location for my 20,000 square foot mansion and portioned some to Bill Gate's charities. I know the money will be in my account soon!

                                      Nigerian 401 Spam. I don't know if I got it or not. My MOST EXCELLENT firewall & AV took care of it when (if ever) it arrived from my server.
