Dear Costumer

I don't normally do much more than report these as phishing scams on my e-mail account. I had to make an exception in this case since the spelling was at least humorous. Between the Nigerian princesses, UK Lotteries, and the Ahmed Sulimans all e-mailing me with promises of love and great wealth, every once in a while you get a real genius trying to use a deadly link embedded inside who thinks the folks at Citibank spell creatively. Anyhow, watch out for this spelling champion's e-mail scam. I of course deleted the troll's link for reproduction on the blog.  :) Costumers beware!

I take it you're not a costumer, huh Charles? :)

At least this one is funny, lol.
After going to such extremes to duplicate websites, logos, whatever, wouldn't you think they'd check their spelling? :)

You'd think so, Raine. The con artists doing these scams are probably all overseas and English is not their language of choice. This one was amusing at least. :)
