Default Is this a scam?

Has anyone gotten this e-mail? Something doesn't seem right to me.

Please don't take this the wrong way, maybe i'm the only one that doesn't see what you meant by that?? So...what do you mean by that????

I would say that it is MOST DEFINATELY a scam!! Being that I just went for an interview this morning which required my DMV record, which I went to get ath the local DMV friday morning, and I had to have ID (ofcourse) and $12.00!!!! And it was a state level job!! So I would safely say that it is a way to get personal information...and I would report it!!!!

I didn't use the link because I was afraid it was a virus or something if I typed my name in.

No, you're not an idiot, just being cautious. Many people aren't, and we usually get to know them in the Spyware Forum

However, that site does have uncanny accuracy :D

I thought everyone had seen that. Every couple of years either that one or the one that says new technology can send heat waves to your monitor to record your image - goes around and everyone is like... AWESOME... wich is Ironic, because the whole premise is you're a monkey so - you prove it in trying to deny it.

Someone needs to make something new to make the public make asses of themselves.

That's the point I mean, go outside... it's often more amusing.

But there should be some gag site that records the people who went there - like a wall of shame for people who fell for it. So we can point and laugh.

That gag site's a few years old now. You're supposed to get real skeered, and then it comes up with the Ape licence thang.

I just wonder how many humanoids will go to the Transport Dept. and tell them they got their licence all wrong, heh!, heh! ::


That, and the one that has a picture to concentrate on, and then has a monster face spring out and scream are the oldest gags in book.
