The scammer got scammed!

Get this.

Someone I know, let’s just name him Peter, had received an email from someone he doesn’t know informing him that he won $600,000+ in their lottery in Madrid, Spain. Obviously, the email was hoax. I got that email a few times before too. This link has the content of the scam email.

I thought Peter would be smart enough to tell what is legit and what is not. To think he himslef is a scammer. He scams people by telling them what he is not. But some people are smart, in two weeks or less , they figure him out.

But he fell for the scam. He actually replied to the email giving away important information like his name, address and phone number. The lure of get-rich-quick scheme got into him.

Who in his right mind would really believe that he can win money in an internet lottery without having to purchase a ticket?

Fool? Or just desperate.
