Nope, I have done in the past though giving them stupid quotes. But don't anymore since finding out they sell on your email.

No, I still don't get any spam! They must have thought I wasn't worth selling! Can't blame 'em really!

Re: Beware Of Internet Scammers

I replied to one did'nt realise it was a scam until they came up with a story that is wife had died and he had lots of different breed of dogs to get rid of, i was enquiring about a husky called tanner, then following week tanner had became a german shepherd lol i know what to look for now.

just hope i don't get much spam then.

Re: Beware Of Internet Scammers

aww these guys are so fun!

I ususally respond to a couple, then ask if they can get hold of mogwais or tribbles

For the uninitiated, mogwais are what gizmo is in Gremlins, and tribbles are the furry things from star trek
