I got this spam this morning from "Michael Stone":

So i have limited access to emails and calls for now,please i need you to lend me about 1000.00 pounds so i can make arrangements and return back home,i have spoken to the embassy here but they are not responding to the matter effectively, I will refund to you the money to you as soon as i get home,I am so confused right now.

[My reply:]

Uh, how do you know me? Furthermore, if you have no money, how can you connect to the Internet?

Let's face it, pal, you are full of shit.

[He replies!!]

i had to plead to some one to allow me use her internet in order to send you this message,Please i am in a state of emergency and i need your help

[I replied again, with more abuse; strangely, he did not follow up]

  1. If you shared the address Mr. Stone was using, perhaps we could all pitch in and help him out - outa wherever he came in.

    Whenever I've answered these weasels, I've never received a reply, but I kept my answers brief.
