Regular visitors may recall that here at the Dullum File we like to play with scammers from time to time. You know, the ones who rather than try to land actual jobs, pretend to be your Facebook friends. It’s their lame efforts to try to get us to send them money, supposedly to claim huge prizes or gifts.
Here is our latest, actual conversation yesterday with a scammer we’ll call Scammer.
