Quote #24535

“According to some lady named Jessica who has an office literally in the middle of a train station with no walls around her, we have won a $50,000 home makeover (cool!!) and a 7 day trip to any location in the United States (wow!!).

She works for a company named Direct Buy and I saved her phone number in the phone (under the name “Scammer”) in case we get another call from her company.  I asked her for a web site and what her full name was but she hung up on me 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁  I am sure she will call back because this random selection process that she had told us about sounds like an amazingly legitimate prize.”

Back in the year 2000, I was hosting Squackle at Angelfire, which was/is a free web host.  I got this e-mail and decided to have fun with them.

The Carnival Person That Guesses Your Weight For A Buck…

The job is easy to do…and you get tips…I think. You’re “strategically placed” in Six Flags and they have the aid of a weighing machine, so they know what your weight is, because they have microphones in their ears too, (did you notice that?) and someone tells them what it is through it. Someone tells them how much you weigh so you dont get prizes! And once in a while, they guess wrong, just because, so no one gets suspicious.
