When I see stupid phishing attempts like this I always wonder: "How much money can the people stupid enough to fall for this sort of thing have to steal?"


This is the saddest part about the whole thing. They target poor and the elderly. Those types of people fall for this, not 'stupid' people as everyone is saying. Someone with very little money may see that and click without thinking out of desperation. Also, elderly people who have no idea how the Internet works fall for it. They are ignorant, not stupid. I've taught elderly how to use computers before, and they are not stupid, it's just a different world for them. Just wait until you grow old and technology has left you behind, and see how you feel.

That's what makes these people the scum of the earth, they not only steal, they target the less fortunate and the elderly who don't know any better. They know that rich people are less likely to fall for it, so they target the less fortunate. And for that, to bring back one of my favorite quotes from Shepherd Book, they deserve to burn in a very 'special hell'.
I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my telephone; my wish has come true because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone - Bjarne Stroustrup

The world is going to laugh at you anyway, might as well crack the 1st joke!

My code has no bugs, it runs exactly as it was written.
