Interesting scam attempt

    Maybe this has been discussed before, but I found it interesting.

    I can't say we get many scam attempts in the mail, but my wife got one today that was kind of funny. Included was a legit looking check for $4,880.00 and the following letter:

    The bullshit is clear in the text. But just for kicks, I looked up the phone number and, of course, it's a cell phone. I don't think I'll be giving Jimmy Homes a jingle.

    Anyone else ever get one of these things?

    I can't say I can pull off having the name Jimmy, in real or otherwise.

    The better plan would be to inundate Jimmy Holmes' cell number and harass his ass, acting like you're interested and not quite following through. They're like telemarketers, the worst thing you can do to them is get their hopes up and waste their time.

    I would go along with this, meet up with the agent and murder him.

    No Reallly.

    Ok, I'm joking. But I would totally invite him into my car, fart really loudly and lock the doors and windows.
