Foolish Games

I have heard about these things, but honestly have never received an email or phone contact before where I had to deal with this situation.

I received this email today.

It saddens me to think so many are destroyed by the cold-hearted scams of others.

The only reason I post this letter is to make you aware if you ever receive something like this.

Although I believe each and every one of my readers are extremely intelligent and would not fall for this type of scam, it never hurts to inform.

I get those (or similar ones) all of the time. It always makes me sad that so many people are in the scamming business.
