Yeah, Mr. Wilson Larry Loan is real for sure. He just approved a loan for me immediately, no questions asked -- for $25 TR. dollars ($25,000,000,000,000 trillion USD only)!!!! I highly recommend Wilson Larry!

I received an email from "Wilson Larry Loans", that exposed (CC) over 100 email addys of his would-be victims. I sent them all my "endorsement' of Wilson Larry" loans.
Whoever posted this has the IQ of a peanut. Thank you whoever posted this -- for closing my account and losing a month of my hard work. Yes, I received a $25 TRILLION DOLLAR LOAN ('s true) from Wilson Larry (loan guyman). But who is stupider? You are or him? Take your pick. Next time I'll have to spell it out for you nitwits too dumb to understand. $25 trillion? Feck, you're kind of lame, or no?

Vale for now,
/s/ Tootha Victor Goethe Spoils

'PS (post-something syndrome): That's all. "Next time" I'll try to spell it out more plainly for the peabrains that "live" among us.

Welcome to ScamWarners (I think) Victor Spoils . I hope I got the quote boxes in the right place. I am not certain what you hoped would happen by sending out that message. My concern is you used slang words that billions of people in the world would not understand. Your "endorsement" may actually help the scammer by further confusing some people who would not understand the sarcastic tone of your message.

Fortunately, most of those messages end up is a spam folder, as will your attempt to warn other recipients. If you would like to know more about how to fight scammers, visit our sister site: www.419eater.com

Your unsolicited mail got the treatment that all unsolicited mail deserved.
Now I am off for a cranial CAT scan.

"Wilson Larry" (loan guyman) is a 419 advance fee scammer, as almost all of you a'ready know. When I noted that he posted a whole batch of his intended victims (including you and me) in the CC bar (instead of BCC - their usual modus operandi) I simply fired my 'satire' off to the addys listed. I thought the fact that he approved my $25 TRILLION dollar loan was obvious enough. Next time (if there is one) I will be more careful and explcit, &c.

Best t' Y'all,

That unsolicited mail was received in my mailbox. He made the mistake of once again including the cc list in full view, a mistake often made by amateur spammers. I do not expect any more mail from that account. Honeypot addresses are less tolerant than most when receiving unsolicited mail.

Fine, whatever. But I don't understand how you remain so blind as to my OBVIOUS intent. You are a blockhead. But, that's okay: no harm, no foul. Farewell, &c.

Victor Spoils. I have blocked your account. It is unnecessary to get unkind and nasty. We are all fighting scammers. reportandie was pointing out that you exposed the email addresses of potential victims once again, plus giving those email addresses to all other recipients.

I don't appreciate your tone to a Member of our site. You will have to read this as a visitor because you are banned from this site.
