Spammers and scammers sicken me. They prey on the desperation and hearts of people. They steal information from legitimate companies in the attempt to skew Google search results in their favor. They scare people into giving up their information just so they can make a buck. They make it difficult for legitimate small and home based businesses to advertise. They’re scum, plain and simple.
They’re hitting a new low in my opinion. They’re sending messages supposedly from deployed soldiers. Be on the lookout for this one:
