God... someone must me

God... someone must me really stupid to fall for this scam :) I pitty you.

Don't be so obtuse!

Just cause you knew it was a scam does not mean you should put people who are 'simple' in the same category. I fell for it, but since I did not have any account information,their scam was already over b4 it even began.
So don't be so naive in putting every one in the same category. What if you were in someone else' shoes?
