I would love to shhot the first person who sent out the 'scam' email. beacuse now when I check my mail in the morning there are at least 50 spam emails in my inbox and 75 in the spam folder. They get tossed together with real emails and then when I go a day or two without looking at my emails there are tons of spam in my inbox. It makes it hard to find the ones I'm looking for.
Which is probably why I have 6 email addresses. lol
Here are some 'real' emails I have gotten lately....I know everyone else gets them too but they can be funny.
