Gold Dust and Bats for sale: Scammer fail or not?


This mis-spelled email was guaranteed to get my attention.  Scammers and spammers often use this trick to lull the unwary into a false sense of security.  We think that we would never fall for that sort of trick – but so many of us do. We believe that we are smarter than the scammer, we think they are stupid for their poor spelling and grammar. 

This is exactly what they want us to think.  Beware…

Beware of the bats and other spelling mistakes.  you might just be falling directly into the trap that the scammers want us to fall into.
