    Nice. Atleast when scamming make it look legit with proper grammar/prose.

    Still I bet the CTR is positive, which, incredible!

          I get 2-3 calls a month from scammers in India, pretending to be Microsoft mostly.

            I have them as tax/IRS impersonators. Theyre pretty straightforward. Im allowed, so uh, just send it brah.

              I've had both the MSFT and IRS impersonator calls.

              I ignore them most of the time and they get sent straight to voicemail.

              I find I tend to accidentally pick up on days where I'm already having a bad day. I've taken my frustrations out on them a few times although it is unclear if they understand the slew of 4 letter words I let fly

                I always pick up the first time. Then they ask for my ssn, and I proceed to start questioning them and letting on that I dont believe the for a second and then make fun of them for not knowing the basics about the "very important" nature of what theyre doing. I always try to get them to tell me who I am, ssn, etc...and then get pretty aggressive about them being frauds. They usually hang up pretty quick and I block their number. I sometimes have 9-10 blocked calls, less lately thank goodness.

                  Is this what the recent spam posts to your blog and forum threads were as well?

                      Where's the scam?  Was some of the message cut off.  Looks like the guy is just asking for money.  He's not promising to make you rich or anything.  It's seems more like panhandling than Nigerian scam.

                        The new demanding approach using ALL CAPS should really scare the begeezus out of you. Besides, where's your heart? All he wants is a SMALL GIFT.

                          Agree with AR, this isn’t a scam. He only wants a small gift.  I say cut him some slack. Maybe he messed up the rupee conversion.
