Re: OT - Hanuman Zhang, this what you did?

I got a scam-mail attempting to get  my EverQuest game account information,
in order to steal my account. I replied to the sender with a few snide
comments and then posted the e-mail on a public message board related to
the game. A week later, I got a second mail from the same address
attempting again to get the same information from me, but using a different
scam. I sent a short reply to say that I didn't fall for it before, I
wouldn't fall for it now, and I wouldn't fall for it next week either.  I
also suggested that if they were going to scam people, they should learn
how to spell first.

Normally, I just delete scam-mail, but these were obviously sent by someone
who had gone through the trouble to glean my e-mail address from the public
forums where I post, so I thought I would take the time to respond. Also,
the e-mails were so poorly written that they were actually very funny to
me, and I simply couldn't resist responding when they'd been kind enough to
give me a good laugh.
