IWA For Sunday 022711

Short and Hilarious

Hey folks,

Time to wrap things up with the Idiot of the Week. This week, well, it's short, and hilarious. I can not feel bad for this guy. I really can't. Do you know that there are STILL people out there that respond to those Emails, "You have won. My Father the King of whatever, Millions to you, ETC." There are STILL people that will give these people all their Personal Information in the hopes of it being REAL. Why do you think they are still out there?

So we have our Idiot. Just read and enjoy.

UPI - Man gave $200K to fake online girlfriend
NAPERVILLE, Ill., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Illinois said a man "was in disbelief" when officers told him the online girlfriend to whom he had given $200,000 was not a real person.

Naperville police said the 48-year-old man called investigators Wednesday to say he believed the woman, with whom he had been involved in a 2 1/2-year online relationship, had been kidnapped in London, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Friday.

The man told police he had wired $200,000 to the woman during the relationship to different bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States.

Investigators said the ID card the woman showed the man was a sample driver's license from Florida.

The man "was in disbelief" when officers told him the woman was not real, police said.
So our Idiot Award goes out to this man, along with ANYONE that falls for these scams. I'm sorry, but I just can not feel sorry for these people. A person walks up to you on the Street and says that they have the winning Lottery Ticket, but the can't cash it for whatever reason, but if you give them say, $500.00 bucks, they will give it to you? You do it? Sorry. You're an Idiot. You respond to those Emails? You're an Idiot. You give out money to someone who says that they just did something for you, when you never asked nor do you know them? You're an Idiot. This guy?

Congratulations any of you are the Idiot of the Week. I do give this guy credit for one thing, in ALL the stories about this out there, he managed to keep his name out of them. {Smile}
Have a great rest of Weekend folks, See you soon.
