Lately I have been recieving these e-mails from spam accounts out of the blue from 'CEOs' telling me they need someone to process their money-orders.

The e-mail looks like this:

After doing some research it turns out that I am not the only one who was entrusted with other peoples hard earned money, so I sent the following reply e-mail back:

Hello Friend,

I have read that this can be used to get me to deposit fradulent money orders so that I can wire my money to untrustworthy people. Please give me assurance that this isn't a scam.

Best Regards,

Of course, I was stupid to expect a response from a real person so this is the helpful reply I got back.

Hello,sorry about the delay in replying you,the first task was sent already and you should get it latest by tuesday morning...i will keep you posted...just watch out for the payment in the mail...Thanks and God Bless
So I should trust this random god-fearing CEO is going to give me 1,000 a week for no apparent reason? I dont think so, as these idiots keep sending me more offers for 'part-time' positions and they somehow evade my report-spam filter. One sent me the same e-mail twice even after I ignored him and reported him.

Con-artists are lame, but desperate con-artists are lamer.
