But that's the point, right? When we do respond to those e-mails, we tend to immediately know that they are spam and the trail stops there. If these scammers are going to work efficiently, they would screen people like us out in the beginning. They assume that the only
people who will fall for these scams must be really really oblivious.
Man, those princes learn a lot at prince school!
