You can go to iptracker.com and it will tell you where it came from. You can also google the name, phone number and address and it will come up if it's a scam

That is too funny that this thread is about scammers and a scammer just replied.  They must be super smart.

I get spam email that has the title "Spam:Very urgent" so they're definitely super smart.

Ah, super smart like the bank robber who writes his "gimme your money" note on the back of his business card.

Got a new one this morning:

 

"

Hello there,
I would like to place an order with you to my location in Malaysia.
Kindly let me know if you can charge directly on my credit card(US issued) for payment.
I have a shipper who can also get the order to my doorstep in Malaysia.
Please let me know if i can get back to you with my order of purchase.
Await your timely reply.
Thank you.
Ladd

Is Malaysia where the Nigerian scammers have located to now a days? lols.

By the way, we have gotten scammer calls at our church, so for those of you who go to one, beware the: "We go to your church and need money to get there because our car broke down." They've been saying they're a police officer calling on their behalf....

I know it's not cake related, but just wanted to share, I was on the phones that day.

Heh heh...I love scammers.
 
There was another woman on Dr Phil today who had gotten scammed out of more than a quarter million dollars. I don't know how people can be so gullible.

She 100% genuinely didn't know it was a scam. she said that she had signed up for Match.com after her husband had died and she put down "widow" on the profile, so they knew she was vulnerable. She just seemed really lonely, which is why people get sucked into the scams.

We had one here from Australia who actually went to Nigeria or Africa last year to meet the scammer she was in love with and was murdered.  They finally caught him last week.

Holy cakes batman!..... I guess I won't recommend Match.com anymore. There are way too many creepers on those sites, I had to weed through quite a few to find my hubby (who actually had a normal picture, lols). The internet is scary sometimes.... o.0
