Big League Spam!
Apparently, if you engage spammers in conversation for long enough, they will pose as the FBI and tell you that they’re legit. I admire the chutzpah. Again, it’s hard for me to think of the morons who fall for this shit as victims; there are so many reasons why this is bullshit. Enjoy:
